Employee Volunteer Program

  

 


Nordson employees are proud to share their time and talents with the community.  The launch of Nordson’s volunteer program in 1993 was built on the Nordson tradition of giving back to the community.  Hundreds of employees participated in the inaugural activities of the new program, called Time ‘n Talent.  Through this program, employee leadership committees organize volunteer projects and recruit coworkers, retirees, friends and family members to volunteer on a project-by-project basis.  Since the inception of Time ‘n Talent, employees have organized and participated in more than 300 projects volunteering more than 60,000 hours to local organizations.  Based on national statistics, this equates into more than $1 million given back to local communities through volunteerism.   

The Mission of Nordson's Employee Volunteer Program

To encourage volunteerism by providing all employees, retirees and their families’ opportunities to plan and participate in organized volunteer activities which address needs in our communities.
