We aim to have a positive impact on the communities we serve, from supporting job creation and skills advancement to reducing energy and water consumption at our plants.
As our sites and operations are spread across the globe, we have the opportunity to work with many communities. We get involved at a local level and look to understand each community’s priorities and concerns.
We also pride ourselves on having some of the most passionate and inspiring people working at Morgan. Not only do our people have a real love of science, maths and technology, but many also follow that passionate spirit through into other aspects of their lives by giving back to their local communities.
We want our people to have the freedom to support what they care about most. We share these stories through our internal social media platform Yammer, where you will often see the generous spirit and nature of our employees - from bake sales to cultural celebrations and charity donations to sponsorship events.
Good Clean Fun
Our people love to give back, often committing their time to sustainable activities too!
Our Singapore team recently spent time together cleaning up their local park, helping to make their community space better for everyone in their local community. The team had a great day, making a positive eco-impact for residents in their local community.
Supporting Local Education
Our people give back by supporting the education of those in their local communities too.
This July our Saint Marcellin plant welcomed students from the Lyon CESI engineers school, to complete internal audits on the site. Six students visited our site and had the opportunity to apply their audit knowledge to real life situations, with the support of our wonderful local team.
The collaboration was managed by our EHS apprentice, Nelly, who was keen to ensure that we were supporting local education. The audit collaboration was a great success and helps to strengthen a developing partnership between Morgan and the CESI engineers school.
Engaging our People
Our people are working hard to create an inclusive environment across Morgan. Our New Bedford team have a dedicated ‘Employee Engagement Committee’, focused on bringing their people together. We don’t have space to talk about all of their wonderful activities, but here are just a few of the ways they are building their Morgan community…
The whole site came together to celebrate Pride Month across the site; from buying cupcakes to give to their employees and gifting Pride pin badges to their employees, and a dress down day where employees from each department wore a different colour of the rainbow to raise awareness; the team went all in to educate their people and come together.
The team also partnered with a small, local company to organise emotional support animal visit from therapy dogs. This fun session was attended by many people across the site, to boost their mood and give a fun break away from their day-to-day roles. What a great way to focus on employee wellbeing!
Dedication to Scouting service
Supporting local community is a passion of many members of our Morgan family across the world, and our Group Financial Systems Manager David is no exception. David’s passion - Scouts - started with his father, who was a keen Scout whilst growing up, and went on to become a leader too; David enjoyed wearing his uniform, learning new skills and playing games with others who shared his interests.
His commitment continued through his teens, moving from performing shows in his early youth, to the Venture Scouts which involved hiking 10s of kilometres in a day and setting up camps in wonderful places. At 20 he made the natural progression to Scout Leader, From the age of 14 he had always helped his father with the Cub Pack, so that was the natural step for him and 38 years later he is still a Cub Scout Leader.
Being a Scout is very much part of David’s family, with his brother, sons and nieces all becoming Scouts, with many continuing to dedicate their time as leaders too!
During his time in the Scouts, David has supported many fantastic activities. Some of his top highlights include a two-week Scout Camp in the hot summer of 1976, celebrating the 70th anniversary of his scout group, completing an 80km competition hike for 21 hours in the worst weather conditions he had seen, taking 17 Cubs to Normandy for a 4 day trip and the huge achievement of being awarded the Silver Acorn in recognition of specially distinguished service to Scouting (which, was presented in September 2021).
David commented on his dedication to the Scouts and the joy this fantastic organisation brings: “Being a Scout leader has taught me many skills, it has given me confidence to tackle many new things. I really enjoy watching the young people gain from the experiences that the Scouts gives them. It is great being part of a team that works so well together and watching young people grow in young adults, and in some cases I am now seeing their children join the Cubs.
Being a volunteer is no hardship if you are enjoying yourself and I have never regretted the time I put into Scouting as the rewards are huge. I certainly have not done it for the medal and did not expect to be awarded it, but it is wonderful to be recognised in this way.”
We are very proud of David and his fantastic commitment to supporting the development of young people in his community; what a brilliant way to give back and support the future generation!
