At Whirlpool Corporation, we believe that all our employees need high-quality tools and training to do their best work. Our people have always been our greatest asset—and we work hard to ensure they are professionally challenged and always learning.
We provide a wide variety of flexible learning opportunities around the globe to enable our employees to develop and grow at Whirlpool Corporation. One of the primary channels we have implemented for employee learning is Whirlpool University, our resource for professional development and building best-in-class knowledge and skills. It provides access to instructor- and self-led courses and learning content aligned with Whirlpool Corporation’s Strategic Imperatives, and is designed to create robust and personalized learning plans for our employees.
Across our global manufacturing operations, Whirlpool Corporation is integrating the WCM Lean manufacturing methodology. One of the WCM Pillars is the “People Development” (PD) Pillar, which is focused on employee development and training. A function of the PD Pillar in each operation is to establish and manage a training matrix to identify training requirements (regulatory, legal, or other) for site personnel.
For the second year in a row, Whirlpool Corporation EMEA was recognized as a Top Employer in Europe by the Top Employers Institute for our innovative practices in human resources management, high-standard development programs, and positive working environment.
