Carrier have a very open/honest culture and always encourage employees to ask questions and make suggestions. Great customer service examples are put in their weekly newsletter and circulated via email for others to learn and gain knowledge.

Carrier recently held an offsite workshop for all employees, where they looked at how they can elevate employee engagement, plenty of ideas were suggested and have since been implemented.
