Our customers have a choice, and how we perform determines whether they choose us. We aim high, set ambitious goals and deliver results, and we use customer feedback to recalibrate when necessary. We move quickly and make timely, well-reasoned decisions because our future depends on them. We invest authority where it needs to be, in the hands of the people closest to the customer and the work.
We are a company of ideas that are nurtured by a commitment to research and development. The achievements of our founders inspire us to reach always for the next innovative and powerful and marketable idea. We seek and share ideas openly, and encourage diversity of experience and opinion.
Our employees' ideas and inspiration create opportunities constantly, and without limits. We improve continuously everything we do, as a company and as individuals. We support and pursue lifelong learning to expand our knowledge and capabilities and to engage with the world outside UTC. Confidence spurs us to take prudent risks, to experiment, to cooperate with each other and, always, to learn from the consequences of our actions.
Successful businesses improve the human condition. We maintain the highest ethical, environmental and safety standards everywhere, and we encourage and celebrate our employees' active roles in their communities.
