At DynCorp International, whether at work, or on our own time, we encourage our employees to reflect the Company’s core values – We Serve, We Care, We Empower, We Perform and We Do the Right Thing. Working in 35 countries around the world provides DI with unique opportunities to give back to the communities where team members live and work.
Helping Close to Home
One way DynCorp International employees show “We Care” is by working with local organizations such as the USO of Metropolitan Washington, participating in events that benefit active-duty military personnel’s families, and volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.
This year DI partnered with the USO-Metro to support “Operation Back to School”, which provided backpacks filled with school supplies to approximately 3,000 local military children in kindergarten through 5th grade. The DI offices in Falls Church and Alexandria, Va. served as drop-off locations for school supply donations, and employees then volunteered to help stuff and distribute the backpacks.
Members of the DynCorp International Intelligence Training & Solutions business area team volunteer at a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The store accepts donations of new and gently-used building materials, sells them to the public at below retail price, and applies the proceeds toward the building of Habitat for Humanity homes.
Helping Around the World
DynCorp International employees also show “We Care” by supporting U.S. troops in Afghanistan through their work with the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP).
Earlier this year, DI’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) team organized great activities for those serving in Afghanistan. At FOB Zangabad, for example, the MWR team kept the members of the military who are stationed there entertained with a karaoke night, video game tournaments, and their own weight lifting competition.
Pride in All We Do
DynCorp International’s collective efforts to give back led to a nomination for the 2012 Outstanding Corporate Citizen of the Year award from the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce.
Developing an overall company culture based on core values is a priority to DI team members and is often seen as a perk for those seeking a career with DynCorp International. Not only are employees given opportunities to succeed at their jobs, but also to contribute to local communities.
