Promoting Health
and Wellness

We instill environmental and safety accountability in our people—as well as a focus on preserving our planet.

Each of our facilities safeguards and promotes the health and wellness of its employees. We know that a healthy workplace is a productive workplace and a value that each employee can also transfer to others in the community. For example, in Besançon, France, our local wellness program MABOnnehumeur (My Good Mood) has offered employees opportunities to buy organic food baskets at work, receive free fruit during working hours and enjoy naturopathy sessions. In Johannesburg, South Africa, STANLEY Inspection partnered with Discovery Health, S.H.O.U.T. Organization and the local municipality to host an employee wellness event. This event educated employees on making healthy choices as it relates to body, mind and spirit, and included blood test screenings, and anti-stress treatments.

Guiding the Next
Generation

We are helping to support the next generation by educating them in sustainability and environmental stewardship, in local initiatives around the globe. In Chachoengsao, Thailand, for example, our local Hand Tools & Storage team helped refurbish Watpimpawat primary school, provided training and bins for waste segregation, and conducted a drawing contest on "How to protect the environment in my community.”

We are also asking young adults for help in refining our ECOSMART™ value proposition. Partnering with IULM University in Italy, we launched a student contest aiming to translate to consumers the “People” component of our ECOSMART™ strategy. Winners received internship contracts in our Tools & Storage European marketing office in the UK and in our Italian affiliate. IULM University will replicate the program in 2017, and we are launching similar ECOSMART™ student competitions in other European universities to further engage and inspire the next generation of talent.
