The employees of Bobcat Company and Doosan took part in “Doosan Day of Caring” — a company-wide volunteer effort to celebrate Doosan’s Foundation Day and global volunteer week during the month of June in various Bobcat and Doosan facility locations around the United States.
Employee volunteers were offered tasks that included participating in Habitat for Humanity projects; working at local food banks, schools and medical facilities; doing yard work and home maintenance for disabled individuals; and performing landscape and construction work at parks, zoos, community recreational facilities and other attractions. Over seven days, more than 300 employees volunteered their time for 30 individual events.
Projects and participation were organized by Bobcat and Doosan facility locations in and around Fargo, Gwinner, Bismarck and Wahpeton, North Dakota; Atlanta and Suwanee, Georgia; and Litchfield, Minnesota.
In many cases, Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders and other machines were used in the efforts, outfitted with everything from buckets to augers and other dirt-moving and land-shaping attachments. Doosan heavy equipment was also used on some projects.
The event placed a large emphasis on the “Doosan Way” — an organizational principle that links all Doosan employees’ values to a management system focused on community and social responsibility that can be incorporated into their daily lives. For more than 10 decades, the company has embraced an approach that includes the Doosan Credo and a corporate management business system, both of which focus on fostering talented people and driving the growth initiative. Since 2007, Bobcat Company, under Doosan’s ownership, has also embraced the Doosan Way in its day-to-day efforts.
“At the heart of the Doosan Way is the idea that being a good corporate citizen is an ongoing responsibility,” said Laura Ness Owens, Bobcat Company director of communications. “And we are so proud of our employees for volunteering their time and talents to help make this a success. They are working hard and accomplishing a lot of wonderful projects for our communities.”
