We recognize that our prosperity and future success are tied to the communities where we operate. RYAM continues a long tradition of being a great community partner and a responsible corporate citizen.
Our communities are our home. In the U.S., Canada, and France, we work to enhance the livelihoods of those who reside in the locations where we operate, which also serve as home to the majority of our employees. Through economic opportunity and philanthropy, we help to make our communities a better place to live for their residents.
We understand that a good quality of life is essential to growing local talent pools and to retaining our workers. High-level talent and low employee turnover significantly contribute to the strength and longevity of our company and also tie directly to the well-being of our communities.
We know the success of our business goes hand in hand with the prosperity of the local community. The direct economic impact of our business and the active involvement of our employees in the community help make the places we operate stronger communities.
And finally, as a company that lives by our corporate values every day, we understand that supporting our communities, while good for the business, is also the right thing to do.
