“If there’s one thing I can say about Radio Flyer’s proud heritage, it’s that we have always kept learning and changing. We would not be where we are today if it weren’t for our desire to keep discovering what’s next and our willingness to try new things, learn from our mistakes, and keep helping each other become better at everything we do.
"Through Wagon U, we show our commitment to being a learning organization by providing learning opportunities for all Flyers. We leverage our strengths and focus on continuous improvement in order to drive innovation and help us achieve our vision.”
- Robert Pasin, CWO

Additionally, our Wellness Committee supports and encourages healthy lifestyles by providing Flyers with nutritional guidance and motivation. They support healthy minds and bodies by encouraging physical activity, such as on-site yoga and circuit training. Some programs they offer onsite include a summer fitness team challenge and opportunities to get out of the office to eat healthy food with fellow Flyers.
We also have a committee dedicated to sustainability efforts. The Eco Flyers work to minimize the impact that we have on the environment, both at work and home. Our goal is to identify opportunities to help each Flyer reduce his or her carbon footprint, to minimize waste, and share new ways to educate our team on how to be more sustainable. Our office has rain cisterns we use to water our Little Green Garden, and our office space is LEED Platinum Certified!
Making an impact in our community and giving back to positively enrich the lives of children in need is part of our identity at Radio Flyer. Members of our Smile Squad organize various volunteer opportunities (called “Smile Days”) and donation drives in which Flyers can participate. All full-time Flyers receive two days of paid time off to volunteer each year. Additionally, through our partnership with KaBOOM, Flyers and Interns spend one day each summer building a playground in a community of need.
Finally, our Warm Memories Committee and Vision Mission & Values Committee are both dedicated to making Flyers feel great and keep our culture alive in each Flyer.
