give students an outlet to interact in positive ways. Barbara Gould, Bendix vice president of commu- nications, said each year a corporate value is observed by employees around the globe. Tis year the value is “responsibility.” “Bendix and Knorr-Bremse, our parent company, firmly believe in being a good corporate citizen by fulfilling our social responsibilities in the communities in which we operate,” she said. “Te commitment to responsibility is why our primary 2016 Values Day activ- ity in Elyria includes the heartwarming opportunity to give back to the community through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and Help Build Hope.”


THE CULTURE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE Culture is an important word when it comes to com- munity involvement. Companies that have a thriving culture of community involvement means that their programs are driven by employees and company policy. Employees have their own pet projects and approach the company for support. Tey are also eager to get involved in company-sponsored programs. Some companies make community involvement a topic during the hiring process. “It is not only discussed as part of our five core values, but as a highlight of working for National Express,” Noble said.


Companies may look at community involvement


differently, but the outcomes are the same. Q’Straint Co-President Patrick Girardin said that the company has never looked at corporate giving as an organized effort, but more as something the brand and team of employees are purposed with. “Giving back has been a fundamental part of Q’Straint’s


core values since the company was founded more than 30 years ago,” Girardin said. “Social good is part of our culture, and will always be blended into what we do every day—when we see a community in need, we help.” Boynton added that everybody should give back in one way or another, especially to the communities that foster the growth and development of their business. “We also believe that giving should be a part of the culture, and not always for PR reasons,” she said. “We encourage our team to be proactive in their giving, as social good is important to our culture and corporate philosophy.” It’s a unanimous opinion that company leadership be-


lieves community service is an important key in developing a symbiotic relationship with local communities. Healthy communities are better able to support businesses, so it is in a company’s best interest to support those communities. John Corr, Jr., owner and president of the New York-based contractor Trans Group, said that it is “extremely” import- ant to give back to the community. Corr also said that Trans Group is not just a transportation provider, but a key component in keeping the community vital and strong. 
