    Whirlpool Corporation Will Open Child Care Facility for Employees

    As part of its continued commitment to create an attractive workplace, Whirlpool Corporation today announced that it will open an employer sponsored child care facility to help working Whirlpool Corporation parents in our local community. This comes as a result of a survey that Whirlpool Corporation conducted to more closely understand the childcare needs of its employees.

  • Southwest Michigan — more specifically the cities of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph — houses Whirlpool Corporation’s global and North American headquarters, as well as several technical, research and customer service facilities. The area is also the focus of the first episode of the “Places that Matter” photojournalism project launched this fall from the corporate newsroom at Whirlpool Corporation.

    Whirlpool Corporation's 'Places that Matter' Project Focuses on Places and People

    Whirlpool Corporation employee Daniel Page-Wood, who works with the craftsmanship group, is another area native who returned later in life after living elsewhere. "There's a lot of positive changes that brought us back, and it was a nicer pace of life," says Page-Wood.

Our Industry Firsts Come From Putting People First

We never let our passion for helping create today’s special moments distract us from empowering even more purposeful innovations. We understand that innovation takes its first step backward when it stops moving forward. That’s why we’ll never stop pursuing new products that resonate with the people who use them. We work tirelessly to create exceptional design and purposeful technology that blends into the home rather than stands out in a house. 

For more than a century, we’ve been innovating and implementing designs that free up more time for what’s important. From the first washing machine to the first stand mixer to the first laundry pair with steam cycles, innovation is second nature to us and essential to our passion. We’re extremely proud of our history of innovation, but we believe our greatest accomplishments are yet to come.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rotate quickly (typically no more than 2 yrs in a role), strong finance team engagement, new resources for employees (paternity leave, health rebate, onsite daycare coming), not hierarchical

    Cons

    Can be overly relationship based vs process based, multiple reorg's in the past 5-10 years, finance is stretched from a resource standpoint

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and up front with the state of the business, continue to take risks and look outside of the core, continue to find additional ways to improve employees lives and work environment
