OPPORTUNITY FOR EATON
What are some of the top positive outcomes of
having an apprenticeship program?
Our personal commitment to developing
knowledge and skills helps us achieve Eaton’s business
goals. Eaton promotes lifelong learning by providing
many avenues through which employees are able to
expand their competencies and prepare for personal
and professional growth. An apprenticeship program
is an additional tool to help recruit and retain talent. It
also helps to build a pipeline of successors for key roles
within the organization.
