Community Involvement

Volunteerism and the spirit of charity is part of our company culture.  We strongly believe that contributing to the community returns results tenfold to the well-being of our employees and their families.  Most employees participate regularly in volunteer activities as a group with our office or individually.

 

Our strong emphasis on families and children has led us to become very active with many local organizations.  We are proud to be a strong supporter of the Big Brothers Big Sisters In-School Mentoring Program, where volunteers visit a child at school for one hour a week.  All employees are encouraged to participate in this program. We have implemented a policy that allows every employee, who wants to participate, leave work early without loss of pay or time.  We also implemented a similar program for Junior Achievement Southern Alberta.  The Junior Achievement program brings members of the business community into the classroom to deliver relevant business learning experiences.

 

Participating in after-work charity activities becomes a group social event for everyone at Auto-Star.   Events are coordinated by management, the social club, or individual employees. In addition to group events, Auto-Star also contributes financially to numerous non-profit organizations.  We are truly proud to be part of our community and look forward to continuing our involvement in the future.
