While Fluor's core business centers on engineering, procurement, fabrication, and construction, providing service to the communities in which Fluor employees live and work is Fluor's privilege. Fluor Canada’s legacy of community service is indicative of the company’s global commitment to volunteerism and philanthropy.
Annual community events include:
In 2015, Fluor celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Fluor Rope Square at the Calgary Stampede. 170 Fluor staff members volunteered a total of 710 hours. Volunteers cooked and served breakfast for visitors to raise funds for the Calgary Food Bank.
Fluor Canada is a long-time supporter of the United Way Make-A-Difference Program, in which Fluor matches 50 cents for every dollar employees give to the United Way and other health and human services organizations. In addition to funds, employees volunteer their time through various Days of Caring activities. Fluor Canada was honored with the United Way of Calgary and Area - Employees Making a Difference in the Community Award in 2015.
Building Futures Backpack Program
For more than 15 years, Fluor employees in our global offices have donated money and time to fill backpacks for disadvantaged school children. Fluor’s Building Futures program has helped nearly 150,000 children around the world. The program gives students the basic tools they need to help enrich their academic experience.
The Canstruction design / build competition challenges competitors to build massive structures out of cans of food. Canned food used in the competition benefits the Calgary Food Bank. In 2015, Fluor donated 4,200 cans of food to the Calgary Food Bank as part of the Canstruction event.
