Our colleagues are integral to our business and ensuring we provide a safe working environment that supports and nurtures our colleagues is of utmost importance. 2020 was an unprecedented year for us all; we are therefore delighted that 2021 has started with an amazing recognition of the hard work and dedication that Whirlpool invests in its colleagues for now, and the future.”
