In 2016, Fluor employees around the world were encouraged to nominate a community improvement project that benefitted a local charitable organization of their choice. Fluor's $100,000 Global Community Project Fund was established to engage employees with a unique opportunity to give back to their communities.
Eligibility criteria included employee involvement, measurable outcomes, project completion by Dec. 31, 2016, and alignment with Fluor's giving focus areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, social services, community and economic development and the environment.
Ten winning projects were selected through an online worldwide public vote, and the benefitting organizations each received $10,000 from the $100,000 fund, as well as help from Fluor volunteers to execute the community projects.
From July through December, the 10 projects competed for the Best-in-Class honor. The benefiting organization of the project that demonstrated the most progress, employee support, impact and visibility in their local community and beyond will receive an additional $10,000 to help further its cause.
