People and Communities

Together, our whole Ford family – employees, contractors and dealers – is committed to delivering profitable growth for all and strengthening our local communities.

As global demand for our products continues to rise, we rely ever more on the skills and talents of our dedicated employees around the world and the dealers who sell our vehicles.

Our business is only as strong as the communities in which we all live and work. It is therefore in our mutual interest to support them and invest in them, through financial contributions and volunteering efforts, to improve quality of life and maintain trust. This support is aligned with our ambition to build a better world.

I want us to be the company that makes a difference in people’s lives – one that inspires its employees, delights its customers, rewards its shareholders and makes the world a better place.”
