With our eyes to the future, we're setting our sights on an even greater mission of mobility for all. ‘Start Your Impossible’ is our call to action to make that vision a reality and inspire people to push onward―past their finish line, past their impossible. Because when we're free to move, anything is possible. Join our talent network to stay in the know about opportunities at Toyota: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQJv6

We’re welcoming 2019 by looking back at some of our favorite memories from 2018: Akio visiting Plano, TX for his global address, Starting our Impossible as a sponsor of the Olympic and Paralympic games, making strides in the mobility space with new tech like e-Palette, Hui, and TRI Platform 3.0, new product releases, and the countless hours team members spent building the future of mobility and giving back to the community. We've had an amazing year filled with continuous improvement (kaizen), collaboration, and kindness. To our team members across North America: thanks for filling our year with purpose, growth, and fun! Here’s to making 2019 even better. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ3lE
We do what’s right so we can change the world – one community at a time. In that spirit, over 450 Toyota volunteers joined Together We Rise, an organization working to uplift local children in foster care, to build 400 bikes and decorate 400 duffle bags (“sweet cases”). Bikes were assembled using the Toyota Production System (TPS), and a tool created by the Quality Team using a 3D printer, which allowed volunteers to build a bike every 48 seconds!

Growing up, Laura and her family spent their summers working 12-14-hour days picking asparagus and zucchini as migrant workers. Driven to start her impossible, Laura focused on her studies, and through a Toyota-sponsored recruiting event at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, she was hired as a co-op at our manufacturing plant in San Antonio (TMMTX). At TMMTX, she immediately got involved with D&I through TODOS, Toyota’s Latino business partnering group, and since then, has represented Toyota at numerous speaking engagements, raising awareness and helping change perceptions about migrant workers. Now, as co-chair of TODOS, at our headquarters in Plano, Texas, Laura believes she “has a platform to fully express myself, and although ethnicity is certainly one part of diversity, true to The Toyota Way, it’s more about being inclusive. I feel my voice can make a difference.” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQk7q
Nearly sixty-one years ago, Toyota began its American journey with a single facility in southern California. What started as a single store in a Rambler dealership has evolved into an American institution that continues to bring jobs, mobility, and technology to its communities. Today, Toyota encompasses a presence in every state, including our North American headquarters in Plano, Texas, 10 manufacturing facilities (14 in North America), nearly 1,500 Toyota and Lexus dealerships and 136,000 direct, dealer and supplier U.S. employees. Across the country, our team members work together to help the company embark on the next leg of our American journey as we strive to lead the future of mobility and continue to improve our products and services for our customers.
At Toyota, we have a long-held commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, reflective of the communities where we live, work and play. Our commitment to diversity doesn’t stop within Toyota. Just last week, team members across the Toyota family raised $40,000 and joined more than 2,500 cyclists at AIDS/Lifecycle — a 7 day, 545 mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Our Team Toyota cyclists are proving that when we’re free to move, anything is possible.
We’re honored to make the top 25 on the 2018 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list! This year marks our 11th year making the list for our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, in addition to our achievements in supplier diversity and our commitment to hiring LGBT and veteran team members.
“By partnering with influential organizations [like] the Human Rights Campaign for LGBTQ equality and the Wounded Warrior Project for empowering veterans, we become better at supporting the needs of our employees and stronger allies to these communities,” – Mike Groff, President and CEO of Toyota Financial Services.
Our new R&D campus in York, Michigan, recycled 92 percent of waste generated during construction. That's 461 tons of material put to productive use instead of being deposited in a landfill! Our efforts to minimize waste and establish a recycling-based society are part of our Environmental Challenge 2050 – and our commitment to creating a net positive impact on the planet.
