Union Pacific is continually building on a strong tradition of total quality management and its reputation as a company where customers want to do business, employees are proud to work, and shareholder value is created.
The railroad’s investment in technology, its strategic route, and its well-balanced customer list have enabled it to become the premier rail franchise in North America. Union Pacific’s dedication to ongoing productivity gains, improved service reliability, and increased customer satisfaction place it in a unique position to provide continued value to all stakeholders — employees, investors, and the communities in which it operates.
The railroad has received many corporate excellence awards — in some cases winning multiple times. Fortune magazine named Union Pacific one of America’s most admired companies, Working Mother magazine named Union Pacific one of the nation’s 100 best companies for working mothers, and LATINA Style magazine named Union Pacific one of the 50 best companies for Latinas.
Union Pacific’s rich history and significant role in building the transcontinental railroad helped it play a major part in the development of more than 7,000 communities across the west. The railroad’s commitment to those communities continues through the Union Pacific Foundation. Every year, the Foundation provides grants to improve the quality of life in the communities in which Union Pacific employees live and work. The Foundation also sponsors “The Principals’ Partnership,” a personalized three-year leadership program that supports public high school principals as they educate America’s future workforce..
