Windsor Windows & Doors recognizes that our success is due in large part to the hard work and dedication of our workers. Through the implementation of the Employee Home Makeover Program, Windsor has been able to give back to its hardworking employees, who help make dream homes come true every day.
The program kicked off in the summer of 2016 and Windsor volunteers have donated their time and talent to complete five home renovations for fellow employees, with plans for many more in the near future. The program was designed to foster both a spirit of goodwill and teamwork. Windsor supplies the materials and employees volunteer to provide the labor. Employees are encouraged to submit individual applications for home improvements they would like assistance with, but may not be able to make on their own due to financial reasons or labor requirements. Recipients of the home improvement projects are chosen by a Windsor selection committee.
From reroofing and replacing windows to painting and landscaping, the volunteers have tackled some tough projects that have dramatically improved the lives of their co-workers. These renovations have made these homes safer and more comfortable while improving energy efficiency and enhancing curb appeal. And these upgrades significantly increase the overall value of the home.
Windsor wanted to repay their workers for the dedication they demonstrate day after day, year after year. Since many of our team members possess valuable skills in the area of home construction, this is a natural way for them to share their talent and expertise. Our people are volunteering their time to help fellow employees in a way that impacts their lives and the lives of their families.
