Johnson Controls recognizes that when employees volunteer in the community, everyone wins. Globally, our employees give of their time to local communities in both individual and team volunteering. Many of our employee leaders serve on boards of nonprofit organizations. Volunteering allows the employee to gain valuable perspective and experience, and the communities where Johnson Controls has a presence are made stronger with our employee service. We encourage all employees to find a cause they are passionate about and volunteer regularly.
Through our WeGive global volunteer program, when employees volunteer with an eligible cause that builds safe, smart and sustainable communities, a $10/hour corporate donation follows upon approval. Nearly 800,000 nonprofit organizations in 200 countries where our employees live and work, are approved as eligible for the program.
Community Leadership Program
We encourage our leaders to engage fully in their communities through nonprofit board service. With many worthy organizations looking for the support of Johnson Controls, employees who serve on boards or who volunteer with nonprofits often give guidance and direction to Johnson Controls’ philanthropic decision-makers. These employees also gain valuable experience with diverse stakeholders in the community that they can then bring back to their position at Johnson Controls.
