At Bayer CropScience, partnering with community leaders and providing philanthropic support have long been a part of our culture and we pride ourselves on rolling up our sleeves to support the communities where we live and work. We’ve supported employee volunteerism and community partnerships for decades by providing paid time off for volunteer work (up to 16 hours!) and make additional contributions of time and resources. The Triangle Business Journal recently awarded Bayer CropScience the “A Better World Award,” an award that honors corporate volunteerism but most importantly, recognizes companies that want to get boots on the ground.
Additionally, we developed and support “Making Science Make Sense,” a program to advance science literacy across the US through hands-on, inquiry-based science learning, employee volunteerism and public education. Bayer has more than 1,000 employees who volunteer in schools, at science centers, zoos, museums, community events and even open up their labs to ignite, inspire and serve as important role models to today’s students.
Our boots are all over the North Carolina Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill areas) with our commitment to organizations such as:
Thank you Triangle Business Journal for recognizing our efforts to be a great employer and community member. We are honored to serve our community and we appreciate your recognition!
