Global Community Impact: serving the community, our business, and our employees

WWT CSR: People

CSR People

Investing in our people and communities

We strive to make a new world happen through technology, innovation and our Global Community Impact program. Our commitment to giving back to the communities we serve is critical to empowering our people, who empower our business. 

As a results-oriented business, it makes sense for our commitment to creating a positive impact on our people be tied to outcomes, too. We take seriously our role in developing our employees, investing in our communities and making a positive social impact for all.

We believe making a positive social impact requires investing in a person’s education, health and ability to thrive in the future. When people feel safe and valued, they are more likely to make meaningful contributions to their teams, invest in their physical, mental and financial health, and seek ways to improve the community. Ann Marr, Executive Vice President of HR and CSR Executive Sponsor

Creating opportunities for others

Boys Hope Girls Hope cultivates youth empowerment by helping academically capable children in need meet their full potential and providing them value-centered opportunities and education. We are committed to BHGH through board leadership, technology support and the Steward Scholars program.

Creating opportunities for others

Providing real-world experiences to launch careers

It is important to us to create pathways to economic prosperity by launching careers for military veterans and young adults from under-resourced communities. 

Our partnership with NPower provides these groups with training, professional development, internships and job placement assistance. Our employees volunteer as board members, guest lecturers and mock interviewers. In many instances, we’ve hired NPower participants.

Providing real-world experiences to launch careers

Fostering a future-ready world

Our partnership with NAF works towards the goal of using work-based learning as a catalyst to create a Future-Ready world.

We hosted a Future Ready Lab, a paid summer internship for high school students focused on developing their interpersonal and professional skills. Throughout the program, interns interact with multiple lines of business, tour corporate and university partner facilities, complete work-study courses, participate in panels highlighting opportunities for technical education and careers, and volunteer in community outreach activities.

Fostering a future-ready world

In addition to the community programs highlighted above and the organizations below, WWT proudly supports hundreds of non-profits around the globe.

Inspiring and igniting untapped potential

Empowering our people to be their true selves

Every WWT employee is encouraged to take one day each year to volunteer and give back to the community at a non-profit organization of their choosing. A Day of Caring is our opportunity to get involved and support organizations that impact the lives of so many individuals.

WWT's Employee Resource Groups were established to strengthen our workforce culture dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion. A unified work environment aligned with our company mission, vision and core values lets us celebrate our employees, make a business impact and better serve our communities.
