What are some of the top positive outcomes of

having an apprenticeship program?

Detra Mardis:

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

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.
