Fostering a Culture of Health, Safety and Community Support
From a well-established safety management system to ongoing employee wellness programs and training efforts, Glatfelter encourages a work environment that is safe, promotes healthy living and gives back to the community.
Concern and caring for current and future generations is a critical part of sustainability. Investing in employee education through U.S.-based tuition reimbursement or European-based apprenticeship programs; weight management and walking programs; and implementing aggressive plant safety programs are some of the ways we make a difference. Glatfelter is helping to strengthen communities in the regions in which we operate by living our core values and providing opportunities to others.
Through philanthropy and volunteerism, Glatfelter impacts many communities—and many countries—in positive ways, helping to ensure the sustainability of our business, employees, customers, and fellow world residents.
