Stanley Black & Decker Accessibility Statement
Stanley Black & Decker is guided by our purpose of being For Those Who Make The World™. Our employees bring to life our important values of Courage, Innovation, Agility, Performance, Inclusivity, Collaboration, Integrity and Accountability each and every day. We operate with transparency, positive intent and the highest ethical standards to build trusted relationships. This backdrop informs our accessibility statement.
Stanley Black & Decker is committed to digital accessibility, and to conforming to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA and complying with the Department of Justice's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design, and other applicable regulations.
To accomplish this, we have partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to administer our accessibility program and oversee its governance. Their accessibility program evaluates and audits our digital products on an ongoing basis in accordance with best practices and is supported by a diverse team of accessibility professionals, including users of assistive technologies. The platform, moreover, goes beyond minimum compliance requirements by making an assistive CX technology application available to customers who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. The application is free to download and it incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.
Our Chief Executive Officer Jim Loree says: "Diversity and inclusion are essential for achieving our vision, fulfilling our purpose and being a sustainable company where the most talented people can thrive. A culture that doesn’t embrace people who look, think and act differently will simply not get to the best solution or results."
