US employees receive eight hours of paid time every year to volunteer to support local communities. In 2023, 45% of US employees volunteered over 6,500 hours with 86 agencies in activities throughout the year, including the Day of Service.

Sensata Serves leverages relationships that Sensata Foundation, the Company’s philanthropic arm, has with community partners to create some of the service projects. Employees, including Sensata’s Strategy Leadership Team, participated at sites across the US, from California, Idaho and Virginia to Michigan, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Vermont and the Company headquarters in Massachusetts. The Women in Sensata Employee Resource Group’s (ERG) Attleboro Chapter led a project at Sojourner House, a nonprofit that supports victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, and human trafficking, while the Sensata Hispanic Association ERG led a project at Crossroads Rhode Island, a nonprofit that provides housing and services for the homeless.

“The Day of Service is one of the highlights every year as Team Sensata collectively spends a day doing what we are passionate about – giving our time and talents to make communities stronger,” said Martha Sullivan, Sensata Technologies’ Interim President and CEO. “At Sensata, we believe that we should also be a neighbor of choice, and it makes me proud that our volunteers answer the call to show up for our communities, not only on the Day of Service but also throughout the year.”
