Social Responsibility

We believe great communities are the foundation of great business.

Whirlpool Corporation is committed to creating products that make life easier for our consumers so they can spend more time doing what really matters — being with family and friends. This commitment leads us to maintain strong connections within the communities where we do business. We work with community organizations to create a “collective impact,” first supporting the health and wellness needs of area residents, then helping to provide safe and affordable housing which enables youth and education development.

This approach allows us to prioritize partnerships where we can track results and create maximum impact. These include United Way®, Cook for the Cure® presented by KitchenAid, Habitat for Humanity International®, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America® and Instituto Consulado da Mulher®.

Habitat for Humanity®

Continuing our longstanding global commitment to Habitat for Humanity®, Whirlpool EMEA completed a unique project in Poland, renovating unused attic space to create affordable housing in partnership with young adult orphans leaving state care.

FIRST® Robotics

At our global headquarters, Whirlpool Corporation is a proud sponsor of FIRST® Robotics, providing local teams with challenge grants, materials and supplies, including Gladiator GarageWorks tool chests. Our employees also spend thousands of volunteer hours coaching and mentoring high school youth to encourage their interest in science, technology, engineering and math, as well as careers in manufacturing.

COMMUNITY Development

Whirlpool India teaches vocational skills to low-income youth to prepare them for meaningful employment as adults. Now in its second year, the program works with local communities in need of specific job skills to increase employment options for those who complete the program.

Employees from Rio Claro celebrate the recognition of Whirlpool Corporation Brazil as a “Great Place to Work” for the 19th consecutive year from Você S/A magazine.
