The Golden Rule
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That’s what our founder, James Cash Penney, used as a guide for conducting his business. He made it a priority to treat customers the way he would want to be treated, and it’s a concept that still guides us today.
The value Mr. Penney placed in the people who worked for him was evident in many ways. For example, he initiated the practice of calling employees “associates,” because it conveyed his belief that people at all levels worked with him, not for him, in building the business.

As a Company, we support many non-profit organizations, and volunteering in our communities is one of the ways our associates get involved and forge strong bonds with each other. Our Round-Up campaigns in stores and on jcpenney.com have raised millions of dollars for worthy causes that benefit local communities.
Associates come together annually to carry on our Golden Rule heritage by contributing to charities of their choice through the Associate Giving Campaign. Many of our associates choose to direct their donations to The Golden Rule Relief Fund, which provides emergency aid to our own associates, and our JCPenney Cares non-profit, which is committed to keeping kids safe, healthy and engaged beyond the classroom.
