Communities

Our company acknowledges that our success to date is absolutely dependent on thriving communities, specifically those that we operate in. The company has long instilled a culture of giving back to the community and contributing to the social and economic development of them. We are committed to building and nourishing strong relationships within our communities and supporting their needs by producing learning opportunities, contributing to charitable efforts, and advancing initiatives that are specifically important to our employees.

Each operating division has the opportunity to support charitable initiatives, such as sponsorships, fundraising assistance, or monetary donations. We admire the hard work that organizations in our communities do to improve social conditions and are committed to supporting those causes.

Walker Industries offers our employees two days per year to dedicate to volunteering and are committed to improve employee engagement and the proportion of employees who utilize these days.
