news-hiring-hereos-01Our Customer Experience Center (cXc) has launched a dynamic community outreach program as part of their recruiting strategy with Air cXc.  Through this program, military veterans and military spouses will become part of the cXc and will work directly from their homes.  The first team located in Brevard County Florida has completed  training and began taking our consumer calls the first week of July.  What a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th of July!!!

In an effort to reduce complexity for our military veterans and spouses the cXc leadership team has developed and deployed a remote recruiting and training strategy.  This strategy enhances the delivery of service hours to our consumers while meeting the needs of our company, care experts, consumers and our community

Utilizing our lean and continuous improvement methods, we will be learning from our initial pilot team to prepare for Phase II of Air cXc planned for Veterans Day, November 11th, 2016.  We look forward to growing this program in the Central Florida area and explore the potential for moving into other military base areas.

“Throughout Whirlpool Corporation’s history, it has been dedicated to reinvest in the community and to improve the quality of life in the communities that we operate in. Whirlpool Corporation aims to transform lives of military veterans and spouses by providing opportunities that improve the quality of family life. We believe that by implementing Air cXc we can build a stronger and more supportive society and support the people and families that serve our country.”  Ken Kleinhample, VP Consumer and Appliance Care, NAR.

news-hiring-hereos-02Sandy Morrison, Director of NAR Consumer Care shares her thoughts: “If we come to work everyday and meet the needs of our consumers and our valued community, then we indeed are doing great work,” Sandy added a quote by Winston Churchill, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”

“The potentially flexible and portable careers that Whirlpool has made available to military family members in the Central Brevard County area provide meaningful and lasting employment opportunities. Military family members offer dedicated work ethic with the flexibility to handle unique situations in various conditions due to their dynamic lifestyles.

CareerSource Brevard’s Military Family Employment Advocacy Program looks forward to future partnership opportunities with Whirlpool to match individual skills and qualifications with available opportunities, ultimately assisting additional military families with employment.”  Crystal Post, Military Family Employment Advocate, Airman & Family Readiness Center.
