People

We are committed to treating all employees fairly, encouraging diversity and providing safe working conditions. Our Code of Ethics is our guide to delivering on these commitments. It outlines expectations and holds all employees accountable for their actions.

At UTC we strive for zero work-related injuries in order to protect our most valuable assets - our employees. In recent years we have made significant strides in reducing work-related injuries. Currently, each of our six business units’ safety performance is best in class, and we continue to focus on our goal of an injury-free workplace.

We actively embrace diversity and inclusion in our workplace. A competitive asset, diversity allows us to accurately and efficiently interact with our markets and serve our customers. This is reflected in our partnership with INROADS, a nonprofit organization that provides career training and internships for minority youth, which has lasted over 20 years. The partnership plays a vital role for employing young talent at UTC, which currently has 195 INROADS interns in the U.S. and Canada.

A well-educated workforce is critical for global business growth, and makes us stronger and more competitive. Our Employee Scholar Program (ESP) is a comprehensive, company-sponsored employee education program that helps us attract and retain a motivated and engaged workforce.

ESP provides employees the resources to be leaders in their chosen field or enable new career opportunities by paying full tuition, academic fees and books at approved educational institutions. The program is available to our global workforce and currently has over 15,000 participants.

Since 1996, UTC has invested more than $878 million to further employees' formal education. Nearly 30,000 degrees have been earned by employees in more than 50 countries.
