The demand for new technology has increased the necessity to invest in the future generation of talent. UTC plans to hire up to 25,000 people over the next three years in the United States alone. The effort is designed to support a platform that inspires creativity and innovative ideas.
Investing and creating new business models inspires growth for the main organization and all others that are affiliated with it. Suppliers are crucial in terms of helping deliver the final product to the customers. Many tasks are outsourced to organizations based all over the United States. UTC has invested up to 40 million dollars in its support system over the last 3 years.
Technology is important. However, it is people who create the technology. United Technologies believes that investing in creative minds will encourage its employees to reach past the established limits. The company’s Employee Scholar Program is designed to allow team members to work towards degrees in a feel that they feel passionate about. UTC pays for it.
