Supporting our Employees
Two teenage brothers, Jim and George Casey, founded UPS. Together with two additional founding partners, a unique service-minded corporation was born. The entrepreneurial spirit of our founders and the desire to see distant horizons has created a distinct culture of growth in UPS. How do we continue to promote this type of growth over a century later? Embedded within the composition of the company are the initiatives to:
- Maintain a culture of employee ownership,
- Encourage employees to focus on career development opportunities by offering education and training,
- And, promote from within.
Learn how UPS has become an employer of rewards, opportunity and achievement - an employer of choice.
Our Extended Family
Successful businesses spark economic growth, fueling healthy communities. The task of improving today's workforce while preparing our youth for the challenges of tomorrow remains critical. While UPS has a promotion from within philosophy that helps it retain some of the most talented people in our industry, we also recognize the importance of new ideas and fresh perspectives. What a better way to bring those thoughts and dreams to fruition in the world than by offering educational opportunities to teens in our communities.
Toys for Tots New Year-round Literacy Program
Join The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc. network as we launch the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Our mission is to offer our nation's most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to resources that will enhance their ability to read and to communicate effectively.
Why do we need your help? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 12.8 million children live in poverty. Through the gift of a book and other educational materials, we can provide these children with the tools they need to help break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
