Sanjay Correa (Vice President, CMC Programs – GE Aviation) has more than 30 years of experience in the turbine engine industry. He is also an Operating Leader of GE’s Asian Pacific American Forum (APAF), a 6,000 strong US-based organization which is celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year. Today he talks about his career, APAF and how APAs can contribute to business success—particularly in Asia.
For GE Capital Real Estate’s HR leader Margaret Lazo, human capital is an investment worth engaging with. For this reason, she makes it a point to spend time in the field, touching base with staff—even if they’re located on the other side of the globe.
Jobs, too, are a concern for Sinise. “A vast majority of our military are transitioning into the civilian sector—veterans who have been in a long time, who are stressed out.” He says it’s time for them to get out, but they have no other career. He’s partnered with GE in a program called Get Skills to Work, which he says is “training thousands of service members in manufacturing jobs. There are more than 600,000 manufacturing jobs available in the country, but we don’t have the skilled workers to fill those jobs.” The program “retools” veterans toward manufacturing jobs.
JEFF Immelt, the chief executive and chairman of US industrial giant GE, has urged local policymakers and corporations to “repurpose” labour away from a pure focus on mining to more value-added industries. At a breakfast to launch The Australian’s Path to Prosperity series in partnership with GE, Mr Immelt said that he wanted to make Australia a base for high-tech mining products that could be used around the world. GE plans to quadruple its 500-strong servicing workforce in Australia over the next few years to serve multi-billion dollar LNG projects in Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. It wants the emergence of what it calls the “industrial internet” to boost its customers’ productivity.
Jeffrey Immelt, chairman and chief executive officer of General Electric Corp., will receive an honorary degree and serve as a keynote speaker during the University of Connecticut’s commencement weekend in May. The UConn Board of Trustees has approved the award of the honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree to Immelt, the leader of Fairfield-based GE and a repeat honoree on TIME magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people. Immelt is chairman of the advisory board to the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness and in that role, he oversees collaborative efforts between UConn and GE in connection with the development of UConn’s Technology Park. GE and its employees also are valued participants in mentoring and internship programs, and a partner in efforts by the state, UConn, and the corporate community to build an innovation-driven economy in Connecticut.
