Our Focus

Employee Engagement

We believe in operating globally and giving back locally. PPG employees are at the center of our efforts to bring color and brightness to communities around the world, providing meaningful contributions in the communities where we operate. With more than 46,000 employees across 70 countries, we have a powerful ability to make a positive impact in the places we call home.

PPG is proud to support the interests and passions of our employees who donate their money, their expertise and their time to build better communities.

Making a difference through volunteering

Across our global communities, PPG employees volunteer their time with organizations that are important to them and their communities. From helping senior citizens in need to cleaning up local parks to raising money for causes close to their homes and hearts, we encourage PPG employees to choose activities that match their interests. In recognition of their commitment, PPG provides $500 grants to eligible community organizations where U.S. and Canadian employees volunteer their time or serve on boards.
Where possible, we also seek to engage employee volunteers in the education activities we support to bring these programs to life. Whether it is sharing safety techniques to a robotics club, or teaching a group of students about color innovation, our community partners benefit from science, technology, engineering and math expertise of our employees – and their enthusiasm for giving back.
Employees are also at the heart of our Colorful Communities initiative, and we combine their passion and volunteer power with our products and financial resources to transform neighborhoods.

Doubling impact

In addition to giving their time, our employees contribute to causes they care about, providing vital support to local organizations in need of support. PPG employees in the U.S. and Canada may have these personal financial donations to eligible nonprofit organizations matched dollar-for-dollar. We are proud to double their impact.
