Mobile Mini Value: Community Involvement

Mobile Mini, like most companies, shares our values both internally with the team members and externally for existing and potential customers and investors. People like to be involved with organizations that share common values and goals. If you looked at most company’s values, you would see very similar terms and phrases; things like integrity and improvement. More and more companies are adding values related to the communities they operate in and where their employees live.

When Mobile Mini created its current values back in 2014, when CEO Erik Olsson came aboard, the community ideas were recognized as an essential component of where the company was headed. Our Community Involvement value reads, “We strive to be an active part of the communities where we operate. We promote employee involvement and give back to those in need.” These words became part of the company culture. Through the existing relationship with Habitat for Humanity, each of our local branch managers has the opportunity to donate the use of a secure portable storage container to a non-profit or local organization in need.

To make it easier for these organization to request the free container, we launched the Mobile Mini Community Giving website (https://www.mobilemini.com/community). The site allows on-line requests to be submitted and reviewed by local decision makers; this process is not managed by corporate bureaucrats. In fact across the US, Mobile Mini currently has over 200 containers at local organizations, and they are all rent-free, which amounts to over $20,000 in community benefits. Habitat for Humanity is the single largest recipient, but other deserving groups include the following:

  • Assistance for Single Parents, Destrehan LA,
  • Avon United Methodist Church, Avon, IN
