Building a Connection with the Next Generation

SOURCE: Ingersoll Rand


The Glocal (global + local) team at the Ingersoll Rand Compression Technologies and Services manufacturing site in the Unicov area of the Czech Republic has a multi-year vision to build a connection with local youth and encourage students to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. The team’s first community project focused on the renovation of a playground and city park.

“Cleaning up the playground and improving the safety and condition of the equipment was a great first step in building a relationship with our community,” says Pavlina Samankova, site Glocal champion. “Our team looks forward to more partnerships, increasing access to educational opportunities for our youth and developing a mentoring program.”
