Since inception, Invensys has been committed to supporting community-building activities in the locations where we operate. We understand that stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities provide better environments for us to conduct business and better places for our colleagues, customers, and partners to live. Our community-building vision is embodied in the “Invensys Involved” program.
Invensys Involved is a corporate-wide community investment strategy that builds and sustains relationships of trust with our communities. Because we are growing and expanding our presence in numerous geographies and industries, our community involvement activities must make a positive impact in the wide variety of locations where we operate.
Accordingly, the Invensys Involved program encourages our business groups and their employees to participate in community relations activities centered on four distinct areas of community service:
- Healthy & Safety
- Civic Enrichment
Through our ongoing focus in these four areas, we continue to help improve the quality of life in the communities in which we all live and work. We’re Invensys, and we’re not standing on the sidelines…….we’re involved.

Invensys provides bicycles to impoverished children
Invensys in Houston, Texas bought tickets to their annual employee appreciation party with 100% of the proceeds going to Elves & More, a non-profit organization that provides new bicycles to at-risk and impoverished children.
With the donation, Elves & More supplied 100 bicycles and 100 helmets to students at Fondren Middle school. The team’s commitment did not stop there; volunteers from Invensys took part in building and delivering the bicycles.
“Thank you for your support. Through your partnership, students signed contracts to improve academically in after-school programs and also achieved goals which they set with their teachers. Together we are changing lives—one bike at a time!” says Rebecca Roberts, Executive Director of Elves & More.
Invensys provides student mentoring program
Career Pathways, a program being piloted by a local high school in Foxboro, Massachusetts is designed to provide students an opportunity to work in fields of interest before entering the workforce or university. Students receive course credit along with performance reviews by their student mentor.
Invensys has supported this initiative by providing positions in process engineering, precision machining and occupational health and safety. Students in the engineering track participated in design and process reviews, engineering support tasks and use of advanced applications. Students in the precision machining track worked with experienced machinists and operate state-of-the-art machining equipment. The occupational health and safety track provided students with exposure to work place safety, medical monitoring and wellness strategies.
Based on positive feedback, Invensys plans on expanding this program to include software development and hardware engineering in future years.
