The program is open to women and men with relevant engineering and product development experience. Selected individuals will be placed on projects based in Benton Harbor/St. Joseph, Michigan. The returning engineer will be provided with a support system during their project assignment with the possibility for a full-time opportunity at the conclusion of the project. If WIRE does well during this first phase, additional locations may be added.
Whirlpool Invites Returning Engineers = WIRE
Because the majority of career returners are female (70% are women), this program has great potential to help increase gender diversity primarily at the senior analyst to senior manager levels. This is a clear talent pipeline challenge today. Another benefit of engaging the returning population, both male and female, is reconnecting with people who bring a fresh, consumer-focused perspective about our products.
