At CoolSys, we are known in the HVAC-R industry as an employer of choice that gives its technicians every opportunity to succeed through ongoing, formalized training programs. We are keenly aware that without our employees, CoolSys could not exist. This acknowledgment goes beyond our technicians and extends to each of our 2,642 employees that help to make CoolSys the nation’s market-leading refrigeration and HVAC services company.
This is why we established the charitable foundation, CoolSys Cares, in June 2020, to give back to our employees by providing financial assistance to those in need. The initial purpose of CoolSys Cares was to provide financial support to full-time employees who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are proud to report that 93 employees and counting have been benefactors of CoolSys Cares. Now, with the help of our shareholder, Ares Management, we have stepped up our efforts to care for our employees by establishing the CoolSys Cares Employee Relief Fund.
Growing our support
CoolSys Cares has evolved into a permanent program that will extend beyond the COVID-19 crisis to provide year ‘round assistance to our full-time employees who are financially impacted by a natural disaster, such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and wildfires. The program also extends to employees who are facing unforeseen personal hardships, or employees who are service members and have been unexpectedly called up for military deployment.
The program is funded by our generous owner, Ares Management, and through the donations of customers, suppliers, and our own employees who can make a voluntary, tax-deductible gift to benefit their co-workers. With programs like this, it is easy to see why we refer to ourselves as the CoolSys family of companies.
Employees can be engaged in fundraising for CoolSys Cares, with events such as family-friendly, virtual magic shows that allow them to have fun and support their co-workers at the same time.
