Last year, employees volunteered approximately 42,200 hours to help enrich the lives of those in their communities through Fluor’s focus areas of education, social services, community and economic development and the environment.
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 volunteer initiatives include:
