How Belonging at Carrier Helps Diverse Talent Thrive

* This episode is previously recorded. Bill McDonough is no longer employed with Carrier. *

In this episode of #PeoplewithPurpose, Steve Amsden, Orion Talent VP Military Outreach & Diversity Initiatives is joined by Shondi Muir, Global Head, Inclusion & Diversity and University Recruitment, Bill McDonough, Vice President Human Resources, Commercial HVAC, and Rich Simpson, Commercial General Manager, from Carrier Global Corporation. Carrier is the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions with about 52,000 employees.

As Bill points out in the episode, a key element of Carrier's growth strategy is a focus on aftermarket and service units, which means growing and retaining a strong HVAC technician workforce. For the team at Carrier, this all begins with people, culture, and the inclusion they represent. Rich's journey from aircraft maintenance in the U.S. Air Force to Commercial General Manager at Carrier illustrates this well. According to Rich, the inclusion so evident at Carrier brings career growth, innovation, brand power, and brand integrity.

Shondi explains that Carrier's commitment to developing diverse talent from the beginning to the end of their career is also evident in its inclusion and diversity brand: _belong™. Carrier understands that only by leading with inclusion and diversity, it is possible to attract the best talent - not despite of differences but because of them.
