The community service days place a large emphasis on the “Doosan Way” — an organizational principle that links all Doosan employees' values to a management system focused on community and social responsibility that can be incorporated into their daily lives. At the heart of the Doosan Way is the idea that being a good corporate citizen is an ongoing responsibility. Bobcat Company has long believed that the organization and its employees should support the environment, communities and partnerships that contribute to the company's and community's success.

“At Doosan and Bobcat Company, we all take great pride in seeing how dedicated and eager our employees are to make a difference in their communities,” said Laura Ness Owens, Bobcat Company director of marketing. “We are very proud to continue these service days year after year.”
