Worthington Industries just wrapped up its 65th anniversary year. Reflecting back on this milestone, it certainly came with a unique set of challenges – navigating a global pandemic and one of the tightest steel markets in the last three decades, to name a couple – but in looking back I know that what I will remember most is how the difficult times showcased the strength, resilience and positive impact our employees make.
One of the best examples of this is the “65 Acts of Good” initiative our employees undertook in celebration of the Company’s anniversary year. Employees worldwide made it their mission to complete 65 positive acts over 12 months that made days brighter and lives better for our customers, our business partners, our communities and for each other.
Despite the challenges faced, our people stepped up in classic Worthington fashion. We saw facilities prioritize production for medical cylinders, in response to the growing need for medical oxygen as COVID cases surged. Others hosted onsite blood drives to help ease the critical need in their communities. As demand for our essential products increased, Worthington’s office and support staff volunteered to work shifts in our manufacturing facilities to balance the workload on our frontline employees. And those are just a few examples! To say I’m proud of our employees and all we’ve accomplished together is an understatement. THEY MAKE BETTER POSSIBLE EVERY DAY. I encourage you to read on for more and to view the complete list of 65 acts. Enjoy!
