Corporate Citizenship

Pomeroy and its employees recognize the importance of giving back to the community. This giving back takes many forms, from international disaster relief to local community support to green initiatives. Recent programs that exemplify Pomeroy’s commitment to community include: 

United Way – 2015 was another noteworthy year in Pomeroy’s support for the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. For the second consecutive year employee contributions earned Pomeroy a spot on the list of Top 25 corporate United Way campaigns. In 2015 the United Way also honored Pomeroy with a Corporate Hero award. Pomeroy received its award for the highest per capita volunteer hours accumulated for a company with more than 500 employees.

Education – Pomeroy employees serve as reading coaches for elementary school students as part of the Northern Kentucky Education Council’s 'One to One: Practicing Reading with Students' program. The volunteers work throughout the school year with first-, second- and third-grade students struggling with fundamental reading skills.

Environment – Each year Pomeroy helps employees celebrate Earth Day by hosting an e-waste recycling event on its corporate campus. Employees drop off unwanted electronic gear for recycling in a secure and environmentally responsible way. In 2010 Pomeroy began initiatives on its corporate campus to promote recycling and reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Community Volunteering – To support United Way-funded agencies and programs, Pomeroy employees created the Pomeroy Cares team. Throughout the year, the team sponsors activities that help employees make a difference in the community. With the team’s help employees donate grocery items for a food drive, prepare meals for cancer patients and their caregivers, participate in fund-raising walks for organizations including the American Cancer Society, and form teams for events such as the Great American Clean Up.

Whatever the project, whatever the task, the employees of Pomeroy are passionate in their commitment to being involved in their communities and sharing their good fortune with others.
