Textron Recognized by APQC for Innovative Practices in Effectively Recruiting, Selecting and Retaining Talent


Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today announced that it has been recognized by APQC (American Productivity & Quality Center), an internationally renowned resource for process and performance improvement, as one of six best-practice partner organizations studied for excellence in recruiting, selecting and retaining talent. This recognition closely aligns with Textron’s vision to be the premier multi-industry company, recognized for its network of powerful brands, world-class enterprise processes and talented people.

“Textron is extremely proud of this achievement and the recognition from APQC,” said Risa Borr, director, Textron Talent Acquisition Center. “We work very hard to be best in class when it comes to recruiting, selecting and retaining talent, and this nod further affirms our hard work in that area. People are among our most important resources, and the practices and strategies we have in place are allowing Textron to find and keep those talented people.”

Textron was one of six companies identified as a best-practice company. Others include Abbott Laboratories, Booz Allen Hamilton, Lincoln Financial Group, Microsoft, and TELUS.

During the process to find the top best-practice companies for recruiting, selecting and retaining the most talented professionals, Textron was distinguished from a large group for its exceptional performance and innovative approaches in establishing a rigorous process in this very competitive market. The selection committee specifically noted that Textron’s practices for leveraging external relationships to assist talent sourcing were exceptional.

“Textron knows how to get in front of the change curve, which is why the company is being recognized for this best practice,” said Ruth Stevelman, project manager at APQC. “Our mission is to help organizations learn from best-practice partners like Textron, and being able to share examples of how the company wins in the war for talent in this tight labor market will most certainly benefit many of our members.”

A report detailing APQC’s key findings and providing in-depth case studies from the best-practice companies will be available to the public this winter.
