As a values-driven company, we encourage our teams to actively volunteer within the local community to get involved in the places where they live and work.
Our 'Community Heroes Award' recognizes those who go 'above and beyond' to improve the communities where we work and live. Every year we are astounded by the amazing efforts of our people around the world and how they have dedicated themselves to making a positive impact on the lives of others.
Since 2016, we are proud that more than 200 of our employees have been nominated for a Community Heroes Award. In 2017, our Global Community Hero Award was given to Adrian Apezetche, a Process Control Operator in Balcarce, Argentina.
Adrian is someone who inspires others with his commitment to helping and supporting people in need. He has been a volunteer in India and Africa for two years, supporting organizations that help children with special needs and disabilities.
In Balcarce, Adrian also has an important role. Working with other local people, he helped to found a non-profit organization that was created to allow people with little free time to do something effective to save or improve the lives of others. With this organization, Adrian contributes to different programs locally, such as collecting coats for winter, school supplies and Christmas presents for people in need.
