Joy Global in the Community

Community relations

Our goal is to operate as a strong, sustainable organization with a genuine social responsibility to our people and the communities where we live and work. 

We take a comprehensive approach that aligns with our corporate values and maximizes the impact we can have as a global organization. We focus our investment of financial and employee volunteer resources to address specific initiatives within the local communities in which we operate; these include education, community development, and human services. 

Our community programs are not just about writing a check. We get actively involved in many of the programs, often providing leadership and teams of volunteers. Our employees are fully engaged in our community relations efforts, offering generous help when needs arise.
