Making a Difference in Our Communities

At PerkinElmer, we are committed to making a difference in our communities through strategic philanthropy, partnerships and employee engagement. We strive to be a good global citizen and corporate neighbor through driving positive change in our communities.

Global Impact Day

On our inaugural global Impact Day, over 2,400 employees volunteered across their communities to support causes in the areas of disease research, food, newborn health, and the environment. This companywide initiative has enabled PerkinElmer employees to support our mission outside of the lab, helping improve lives and the world around us. Take a look at some of the ways we helped give back!
