Herman Miller Cares

Herman Miller employee volunteers on Women's Service DayYou may or may not know that Women’s Service Day began in 2002 when seven women who worked together decided to recruit volunteers for a Habitat for Humanity women’s build project. They all worked at office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller. Although Women’s Service Day has always been a grassroots event, it was born from this connection the planning team members had with each other through their employer.

So our team was especially thrilled when its giving program called Herman Miller Cares made a $2,000 donation to the Nuestra Casa neighborhood center renovation fund, helping the project near its goal of $75,000. Herman Miller Cares is designed to develop deeper relationships with the local organizations that Herman Miller employees are passionate about.Herman Miller Aeron Chair

Herman Miller was also a corporate contributor to the Women’s Service Day silent auction at this year’s event, which brought in over $1,800 for Nuestra Casa on October 3.

We’re thankful, not only for the company’s generous gifts, but also for the benefit it offers employees: 16 hours of paid time to work with the charitable organizations of their choice. For 12 years, we’ve continued to fill our work crews with many volunteers from Herman Miller volunteers. We know they care!
