Our Community

 

We believe in giving back and helping improve overall quality of life of our employees and of Salvadorans that live in surrounding communities.

We know that social responsibility starts inside the company and besides complying with government labor and environmental regulations, the company continually invests in improving our associates personal and technical skills, as well as in occupational health and safety programs to protect our employee’s wellbeing. Some additional initiatives in place include: subsidized daily meals for all employees; subsidized “food co-op program”; annually we provide our employee’s children with school supplies, among many other actions.

Volunteer Program

For five consecutive years, in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity, our associates have helped build housing for more than 20 families located in Ahuachapán, Santa Ana, Sonsonate and La Libertad. Besides financial support and volunteering have also beneficiated more than 350 children with values-based activities in each of these communities.

Based on our commitment to their program each year, George C. Moore Co. was awarded the 2014 Building Solidarity Award by Habitat for Humanity El Salvador.

GCM Inspires

We are proud of our associates and throughout the years we have learned about their sacrifices, and commitment to improve their quality of life. Their stories of growth and perseverance are inspiring and that is how GCM Inspires was born.

GCM associates participate as volunteers by sharing their personal story of professional growth and the challenges they faced in their journey of pursuing their life goals and objectives. Throughout this initiative we seek to motivate women in vulnerable situations and students from 9th up to 12th grade to pursue a higher education (technical, vocational and/or university level and learn goal-setting tools as a powerful technique for helping develop a solid foundation for future planning and organization.
