Our People, Our Planet
At La-Z-Boy we aim to improve the lives of others by developing a world-class program based on partnerships where employees feel a sense of connection and pride in their communities. We are vigilant with regard to the environment, integrating sustainable business practices to reduce the impact of our operations both locally and globally.
Our Communities, Our Planet
At La-Z-Boy we are committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which we live and serve through our leadership, financial contributions and volunteer efforts. We are also vigilant with regard to the environment, integrating sustainable business practices to reduce the impact of our operations both locally and globally.
Our philanthropic initiatives include the La-Z-Boy Foundation, local community involvement, disaster relief, and Ronald McDonald House Charities, and in 2021, La-Z-Boy Incorporated and the La-Z-Boy Foundation made a combined total of donations of more than $2.7 million.
Our employees exemplify this spirit of giving through leadership and volunteer efforts in their own communities, and for numerous non-profit organizations, which include the United Way, Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity and others.
“The La-Z-Boy Summer of Caring” is a seasonal initiative that encourages and supports employee volunteerism during the summer. The program launched in 2018 and since then, our employees have accumulated over 25,000 hours of caring. In 2019, a sister program “The La-Z-Boy Season of Caring” was launched at the request of employees who wanted to continue that spirit of volunteerism during the holiday season. These programs correspond with the La-Z-Boy Corporate Mission Statement, including “compassion,” one of our company’s core values, and are a great addition to the overall corporate social responsibility initiatives of La-Z-Boy.
At La-Z-Boy, we understand the impact our operations have on the environment, both locally and globally.
