Rewards & Recognition
Canon recognizes its employees for going above and beyond their traditional job responsibilities. The Canon Spirit Awards program celebrates the outstanding efforts of employees who make a positive difference for our company, colleagues, and customers.

“Longevity is very important to Canon's success. With each passing year, our employees gain valuable knowledge that makes them an even greater asset to our Company. Canon is only as strong as the people who form the foundation for its success. We have a worldwide reputation for remarkable technology, but it is the employees behind our outstanding products and services that are truly our most valuable asset.” – Joe Adachi, Chairman & CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc.
Canon has historically participated in the national Take Your Child to Work Day by offering a program that allows employees’ children to visit the workplace. A day of engaging and educational activities are planned to have the children learn about our company, products, technology, and environmental initiatives.
Additionally, at our headquarters in Melville, NY, employees have the opportunity to participate in Company-sponsored sports teams. The leagues compete at local parks, and participation encourages teamwork and building relationships with colleagues.
