Professional Development & Training
In 2010, Training magazine honored Orkin for the eighth consecutive year as one of its prestigious Top 125 organizations that excel in human capital development. Orkin University’s one of-a-kind $10 million dollar training facility in Atlanta features a full-scale functional house and a commercial facility including a commercial kitchen, restaurant, bar, hospital room and hotel room. In 2006, Orkin launched its interactive satellite network – Orkin TV – that links employees through first-of-its-kind live broadcast technology.
Giving Back to Our Communities
As part of its ongoing commitment to community service, Orkin collaborates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on several public education initiatives involving pest-related health risks. Orkin and its sister pest control companies launched Fight the Bite in 2008 – a program to help American homeowners reclaim their yards and save lives in Africa by waging war on mosquitoes and the deadly diseases they can carry. Since then, Orkin has given more than $350,000 through its Fight the Bite program to the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign — a global, grassroots effort dedicated to saving lives by preventing malaria in Africa. One hundred percent of the donation funded the purchase and distribution of tens of thousands of mosquito nets to African countries. In 2010, Orkin has pledged to donate another $225,000 to Nothing But Nets. Please visit Orkin: Fight the Bite, for more information on how you can help.
Orkin is also committed to educating communities on pests through its website on termite identification, prevention, treatment and control (www.orkin.com/learningcenter) and Junior Pests Investigators (http://juniorpi.com). Junior Pests Investigators (JPI) is a free series of K-6 lesson plans designed by educators (that meet National Science Standards) to teach children to think differently about pests and pest management.
Orkin has been “keeping pests in their place™” for more than 100 years. During that time, the company has seen many important changes, including changes in its workforce. While Orkin may be known for the Orkin Man, Orkin women have also played a key role in the company’s continued success – which is why Orkin is continually committed to helping women advance in their careers. Recognizing the lack of women in the pest management industry, Rollins, Inc., Orkin’s parent company, formed the Women’s Resource Group initiative in 2008 to help recruit more women into Rollins’ family of pest control companies, and foster the professional growth of female leaders already employed. Whether you are interested in an entry-level position or looking to advance your career, Orkin offers long-term career opportunities with advancement potential to all motivated employees.
