EXAIR is a company that is built around saving, sustainability, and doing the right thing. Our products focus on saving compressed air, reducing sound levels, and improving the safe operation of compressed air blow offs. EXAIR is also focused on ways to give back to our community and better our team. Over the past year EXAIR, through an employee sponsorship program, has given back to over 30 charities. This program is open to all EXAIR employees and enables us to select a charity event that we wish to participate in and EXAIR will sponsor our participation. Fortunately, many events have a charitable arm associated with them and we have a great deal of events to choose. This leads to us, the employees, being able to contribute to charities we want to, but also gets us out and doing these events and staying active.
Over the past year EXAIR has sponsored employees in over 30 different charity backed events. This list continues to grow every year and this does not include the charities that we have always supported through direct donations or volunteering, for instance.
The picture below is of our 7 person team for the Tough Mudder in Kentucky for 2016, out of the 7, 6 are employees that were all sponsored and chose to support Wounded Warrior through running the Tough Mudder for the 2nd year in a row, first time in Kentucky, and third Tough Mudder for a few of us.
For myself, the best part of working for a company that not only gives to charities but encourages their employees to get out and participate within our communities, is knowing and experiencing these events together. To give an idea we had five separate departments represented at just this event.
