Corporate Responsibility
Corporate Responsibility

Samsung recognizes that your choice of workplace is affected by more than benefits and compensation. Many in the workforce want to work for an employer who will value them and help them reach their fullest potential, while preserving work-life balance. Others are also concerned by what their employer is doing to help the environment and those in need.

Samsung's commitment to sustainability and good corporate citizenship is strong. Here are some examples of how Samsung Mobile is not just a great place to work, but how we're also doing our part and giving back.

Environmental Initiatives

As an electronics company, we have a tremendous opportunity to do work that positively impacts the environment. We constantly design eco-friendly products that are energy efficient and help consumers reduce their carbon footprint. We also have set up the Recycling Direct program, which helps consumers needing to dispose of their old electronics find the most environmentally friendly way to do so.

Citizenship and Service

A commitment to bettering our communities runs deep at Samsung, both among our employees and as part of our corporate culture. Samsung's charitable programs have raised more than $25 million for more than 300 school and community-based foundations and charities in the United States since 2002.

The main focus of our social contributions is making the lives of children better, especially by promoting education and health. For instance, through Solve for Tomorrow, Samsung and its partners donated $1 million worth of technology to public schools. Meanwhile, Four Seasons of Hope supports charities sponsored by famous U.S. sports stars.

Our corporate sponsorship benefits many local and national organizations focused on improving lives. Highlights of this sponsorship include our work with Habitat for Humanity, providing funds, appliances and volunteers to build a house for a family in need, and recently, a matching-donation program for UNICEF's Haiti Earthquake relief efforts. Other beneficiaries of Samsung's efforts in 2010 include the Cricket Charity Golf Tournament in San Diego, the Greater Dallas Korean School, the Atlanta Area Boy Scouts Golden Eagle Breakfast and the Curing Kids' Cancer Golf Tournament.

Our employees are also generous in donating of their time and money to community service. Samsung volunteers have worked with the following organizations:

Habitat for Humanity Logo

Habitat for Humanity is one way Samsung gives back to the community by building a home for a needy family from the ground up. Samsung maintains an annual budget near $100,000 and donates over 300 volunteer hours annually.

North Texas Food Bank

Samsung provides food to area food pantries, soup kitchens and meal delivery service. Samsung wants to promote goodwill in the community and allows employees to help those in need around the holidays.

Susan G. Komen For The Cure Logo

Employees were invited to wear jeans to work if they donated money to the foundation. Employees paid $5 to wear jeans to work one day – $20 for the whole week. All funds went to support the foundation in the Dallas area in the name of Samsung Telecommunications America.

Carter Blood Care Logo

Each day, local patients depend on 1,100 blood donors. Each employee's single donation has the potential to help an average of three patients. The blood drives keep the local blood supply strong and available to those whose lives depend on it.

Rady Children's Hospital San Diego Logo

Cricket Charity Golf Tournament – Keeping with the tradition of years past, the tournament will benefit Rady Children's Hospital of San Diego with a focus on helping low-income families impacted by cancer. Approximately 3 Children get diagnosed with cancer every year in San Diego & with Rady Children's Hospital serving approximately 80% of ALL pediatric cases in San Diego, we are confident that our efforts will make a difference in people's lives.

Toys For Tots Logo

Employees donated new, unwrapped toys for needy newborns to 12 year old during the toy drive. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

If you're looking to work for a company that values you and your potential and one that is committed to having a positive impact on the world, Samsung is the place for you.
