"Awareness and practice of corporate citizenship"
Beginning in 1991, employees around the world have marked the anniversary of OMRON's establishment, known within the company as "Founder's Day" by engaging in a wide variety of volunteer activities. Beautification projects, visits to schools, orphanages and retirement homes, blood donation and computer training are just of the few diverse activities through which we express our appreciation to the communities in which we do business. These activities are performed during work hours; thus OMRON provides opportunities for employees to give back to the community while on company time.
