Working At Boeing

It's no secret that Boeing leads the world in Aerospace technology. Maybe that's why so many people want to work there. Or maybe it's because Boeing treats its employees as the most important asset to the company.

Diving Into the Values at Boeing

At Boeing you're not just another number. You're challenged to make your career what you want it to be. If that means you want to contribute to your community, you should. Or if you want to make the world a better place, you can. Employees are encouraged to shoot for the stars at Boeing.

The company is focused on giving back to the communities it serves, as well as developing leaders within its walls. With the Employee Community Fund of Boeing (ECF) and Boeing Business Resource Groups (BRG), the company has you covered in all aspects of your career.

More Than a Career

Encouraging a Giving Back Mindset

Boeing is home to one of the largest employee-owned and managed funds. The ECF has been a part of the organization for over 60 years now. It was created as a space for Boeing employees to have a greater impact on the world. This fund provides a way for employees to pool together tax-deductible donations. Then those donations are passed onto nonprofits throughout the local communities the company serves.

As an example of how involved the company is in the community, a couple of years ago Boeing held a clean-up event. Employees observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day by cleaning the area surrounding the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. Later that year, Boeing employees were seen helping clean up after Hurricane Harvey passed through the Houston area.

Boeing doesn't stop encouraging its employees there. As stated above, the employees are the most important asset. That's where the Employee Disaster Relief Fund (EDRF) comes into play. This fund is "In Case of Emergency." Say disaster strikes. A man-made or natural disaster has impacted your life. What happens? Well, if you work at Boeing your coworkers may pull together and donate to the EDRF. In turn, you're given some financial assistance in a time of need.

Grow in Your Career

Providing the Support You Need

As previously stated, one of Boeing's goals is to help employees become leaders. Through the support of BRG, Boeing employees not only grow professionally, but personally as well. The employee-led associations promote diversity and inclusion while working on developing strong networks. The groups are made up of people who share common interests. The associations are:

  • Boeing Asian Professional Association
  • Boeing Black Employees Association
  • Boeing Employee Ability Awareness Association
  • Boeing Employee Pride Alliance
  • Boeing Familia
  • Boeing Generation to Generation
  • Boeing Native American Network
  • Boeing Veteran Engagement Team
  • Boeing Women Inspiring Leadership
  • It's clear that these groups are important to the company since one of the values at Boeing is being more diverse and inclusive. In addition to helping employees develop their careers, the company strives to provide an environment where everyone feels welcome and respected. That's why Boeing also provides diversity councils.

    Site leaders, managers and employees work together on these councils to promote inclusion and work on employee engagement. The councils provide learning opportunities for employees. The councils are also used as outlets that provide for better communication.

    Put Down the Cancer Stick

    Benefits That Will Rock Your Socks Off

    Nearly 12,000 employees at Boeing have quit tobacco since 2002. Why? Well, maybe it's because of the Quit for Life program. The special program is just one of the unique perks that helped Boeing earn the title "Best Employer for Healthy Lifestyles" by the U.S. National Business Group on Health. The company also provides on-site fitness centers, discounts on weight management programs and annual physical activity challenges to promote better lifestyles for its employees.

    Boeing believes that equal work deserves equal pay. So it doesn't matter what your race, gender or ethnicity is; if you're doing the same work as someone else you both will be paid the same amount. Employees also enjoy annual incentives and being recognized for going above and beyond.

    At Boeing, vacation and sick leave are seen at 2 different things. Plus, you'll enjoy 12 holidays annually, including a winter break between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. Employees also receive PTO for certain life events, such as parental leave and jury duty. Military employees even get two weeks of PTO for mandatory annual military training.

    In addition to normal insurance, retirement benefits and tax-advantaged accounts, Boeing also helps you manage your student debt. Through repayment strategies and unbiased refinancing information, Boeing provides you with the tools to get out of debt.

    It's clear Boeing cares for its employees. From professional growth to personal growth, Boeing makes sure its employees receive only the best support.
