We take community service seriously. Our employees seek out volunteer opportunities in the community, and we allow each of them sixteen paid hours a year to work with the charitable organizations of their choice. Herman Miller people regularly take part in initiatives ranging from highway and river cleanups to youth mentoring programs. Herman Miller sets goals for the number of employee volunteer hours we contribute annually to our communities. Our yearly goal is 10,000 hours, and through some of the efforts described below we exceeded that goal by more than 3,600 hours.
