Winston Churchill once said, ”We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” It is in that spirit of giving that APi group honors one company in the family that demonstrates extraordinary generosity, commitment to community service, and philanthropic efforts.
Grunau Company is proud to earn the 2017 Bob Nelson Community Service of the Year Award.
The award was presented at the APi Group Leadership Summit in June. The award was given to Grunau after the company showed commitment to charitable causes, demonstrated outstanding civic responsibility, and encouraged employees to take on leadership roles in the community during 2017.
Grunau’s employee engagement surveys consistently rate high in the statement, “My coworkers are friendly and helpful”. This commitment is evident through Grunau employees volunteering their time, money and material to numerous events and organizations throughout the community.
