Realty Income supports racial justice and equality for all. Respect, integrity, humility, diversity, and inclusion remain core values to us because how we act is as important as what we accomplish. We want to champion meaningful progress. Uncompromising change must address and eliminate the systemic issues found in our institutions and society. We must challenge our own biases. Corporate leadership starts with us. Each day this journey begins with educating ourselves so that we can bring the best version of us to our colleagues and other stakeholders. We are committed to action by holding uncomfortable conversations and offering financial support to nonprofits advocating and advancing racial justice. We empathize with those impacted by prejudice and recognize our responsibility to support initiatives promoting a corporate culture and society that strives for equal opportunity for all. We will continue to foster inclusion within our teams and offer allyship to all who share this vision.

Human Capital

Our Social Responsibility Commitment

We put great effort into cultivating an inclusive company culture. We are One Team, and together we are committed to a culture that provides an engaging work environment and encourages integrity, transparency, respect, and humility. Regular open communication is central to how we work, and our employees take pride in our long-standing history of providing monthly dividends to our stockholders. We hire talented employees with diverse backgrounds and perspectives and work to provide an environment where capable team members have fulfilling careers in the real estate industry and where they are encouraged to engage with business partners and communities where we operate.


We believe our employees form the foundation of Realty Income’s corporate culture and are our most valuable assets. We depend on talented team members with sector-specific expertise to fulfill our mission and achieve our vision. Nurturing that relationship is centered in:

  • Hiring & Retention: Hiring talent from the local community and providing early- career professionals insights into the value of a real estate career with us. The development of our people starts at the point of hire and is carried out throughout an employee’s tenure with our company by training and ongoing skill-development opportunities.
  • Benefits: We provide compensation that we believe is competitive with that of our peers and competitors and generous benefits packages.
  • Health, Safety & Wellbeing: As a cornerstone to operational success, the programs we offer to support our employees enable participation in various activities and educational programs to enhance their personal and professional lives.
  • Diversity, Equality & Inclusion: In addition to policies and procedures fostering diversity, equality, and inclusion (DE&I), we’ve recently launched several learning opportunities aimed to continue building knowledge and facilitate open and safe conversation regarding critical DE&I topics, such as confronting biases in the workplace, driving inclusive conversations with others, and promoting belonging in our remote environment.
  • Human Rights: Due to the nature of our work and where we operate, we have limited exposure to human rights risks. Nevertheless, we believe that respect for all human rights reflects the values we uphold. It is our responsibility to institute practices within and outside our operations that support leading corporate citizenship principles that are in line with internationally recognized standards, rules, and regulations.

Community Engagement

Our Commitment

We believe that giving back to our community is an extension of our mission to improve the lives of our stockholders, our employees, and their families. Our Community Partnerships & Charitable Giving reflects our strong commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen and taking an active role in the betterment of the communities in which our employees and stockholders live and work.


  • Serve and strengthen the communities in which we operate.
  • Have relevance to the real estate sector.
  • Support community through education.
  • Promote environmentally and/or socially sustainable behavior.

We strive for One Team, an all-hands approach to generate value for all stakeholders – stockholders, clients, employees, and community. Though we work together as one, we are made up of diverse backgrounds and we believe that it’s through the lens of diversity that we can contribute to a more comprehensive outlook of our company’s operations and those we serve.

We are committed to providing an engaging work environment where team members can build fulfilling careers. We encourage team members to do the right thing, to take ownership as our clients’ success is our success, to empower each other, to celebrate our collective differences, and to contribute to the greater good of our communities.
