Fluor Cares, Fluor’s formal employee volunteer program, is the heart of the company’s community involvement efforts. Started in 1976 by J. Robert Fluor, the program engages and empowers employees to make a difference in their communities, extending Fluor’s philanthropic impact. Community partnerships include Engineers Week®, Habitat for Humanity, and Building Futures, Fluor’s single largest volunteer initiative that provides backpacks filled with school supplies to less fortunate children.
As a corporate citizen committed to social responsibility, Fluor makes a sustainable impact wherever we have operations or projects – through client projects, and also through community engagement, employee volunteerism and philanthropy. We work to leave a positive legacy wherever we have a presence.
Year after year, Fluor employees give their time, money, energy and support to enrich the lives of those in their community in need of a little extra help, support and encouragement. Global companywide volunteer initiatives include:
As children across the globe prepared to go back to school, Fluor employees donated to the company’s annual Building Futures backpack project to assist them. Nineteen (19) Fluor sites participated in the efforts, donating more than $117,000 to provide school supplies and other necessities to over 8,000 children.
For 11 years, Fluor’s Building Futures program has collectively touched the lives of more than 75,000 children around the world by employees donating backpacks filled with the basic tools and resources students need for learning.
Continuing our 40-year tradition, Fluor employees participate in the annual Engineers Week program. Volunteers share with elementary and secondary students how math and science applies to everyday life, as well as information about the vast career opportunities in engineering. During Fluor's annual Engineers Week, Fluor employees reach thousands of students across 31 countries by participating in various activities. They also coordinate student activity days and career days at Fluor offices.
