At Ricor, we measure success as much by our environmental and social impact as by our financial performance. Social responsibility and corporate citizenship is an integral part of our value system and we manifest this through active involvement and field work in the communities where we live and work. We're proud of the fact that many of our projects are driven by the voluntary commitment of our employees, putting their personal talents to the service of others. We reward our employees for their initiatives and actively seek out new opportunities to ensure we are having a positive impact on our communities.
The activities in which we are involved include:
- Integrating employees with special needs
- Supporting a local foster home for kids who can't live safely with their own parents. From maintaining their gardens and planting trees, to teaching in their classrooms and financing their electronics classes and therapeutic horse-riding sessions
- Working to bridge the gap between industry and the education system, through partnerships with schools
- Initiatives to bring the next generation of young people to high technical competency through professional development for students
