Voluntary Community Support

Our Local Engagement

We provide every employee with one paid day-off per year to volunteer at non-profit organizations supporting the elderly, the ill, those with physical disabilities, children and youth, refugees, or the environment. We have set a Novanta-wide goal of sponsoring 500 community service days by the end of 2023. In 2021, despite barriers to in-person activities, our sites found creative opportunities to volunteer in outdoor settings. For example, our Syracuse location has a long-standing partnership with the US-based Adopt-a-Highway program. Highway adopters commit to clear litter and storm drains along a stretch of public roadway. In May 2021, 12 volunteers, spending a total of 37 hours, collected trash from nearly 2 miles of public roadway. Meanwhile, our colleagues in Stockport, UK paid three visits to Lower Moss Wood, a nature preserve and wild animal hospital, to clear brush, feed injured animals, and maintain waterways.

Sustainability starts with Baby Steps, always moving forward, and grows with each step! That is what we are doing at Novanta, one step at a time!
