giving back

Community Partnerships

We believe in our communities.

Giving back to the community is an integral part of who we are as a company. We encourage each other to engage organizations and events that align with things we're passionate about.

our volunteer initiative

Hard Hats, Strong Hearts

The purpose of O‑A‑K’s volunteer initiative is to:

  • Use our talents to make a positive impact in our community;
  • Connect with each other; and
  • Build meaningful relationships.

Each year we hold eight individual (one day) volunteer events, where we partner with community organizations.

diversity, equity & inclusion statement

we are shaping the future

We understand that diverse cultural backgrounds, life experiences, and viewpoints broaden our ability to solve problems and serve others. As an employee-owned corporation, we are on a journey to become a more diverse workplace. That commitment can be measured by the inclusivity of our hiring practices, the investment of our time and resources in employee education, and our leadership in the community. We don’t just want to be part of the diversity conversation; we want to help shape it.

As a company, we decided we’d like to give back to the community around us… O‑A‑K is probably the best company that I’ve ever worked for. It’s really the support, the teamwork, just that culture – that make it great.
