Your growth as a human resources professional will include several foundational experiences, with assignments that may include:

Compensation & Benefits

In addition to accelerated work assignments, you will participate in individualized skill and competency development programs, as well as formal and informal training activities to further prepare you for a successful career at UTC. Participation in the HRLP provides you with a unique opportunity to gain valuable exposure to senior business leaders and colleagues from across the businesses, while benefitting from both formal and informal mentoring relationships with executives, managers and your program manager.

The HRLP can serve as a springboard into a rewarding human resources career at UTC. At the conclusion of the program, participants will have the opportunity to move into either generalist or specialist roles in support of both functional and business objectives.

As a recent graduate of the program, HRLP provided me opportunities within the company that may not have been open to me without the skills and network I gained through the program. More

The HRLP program sets participants up for success by creating opportunities for network development, senior leadership exposure, and by providing robust and diverse rotational assignments where participants can accelerate skill development and build a solid understanding of the business. For me personally, it was one of the best decisions I could have made for my career and development in HR.
Also as a graduate of the program, one of the things I valued most while in the program, was the mentorship and support from leaders, the program manager and from other HRLP participants. The camaraderie and support within the HRLP cohort is invaluable, especially when moving to a new site or assignment.
