Graduation season may technically be over, but this month, we squeezed in one more ceremony for the six participants of our IGNITE Program. A two-year rotational program for graduates, IGNITE offers structured career development and assignments across DENSO businesses and geographies. The “graduating class” included:
The program not only provides participants with incredible individual experiences as they kick off their careers, but what they learn, the relationships they make and the insights they gain benefit DENSO. Whether helping to reach our Long- or Mid-term Policies, support our advancement in CASE technologies or just work better as ONE DENSO, these six professionals are now armed with valuable knowledge, skills and relationships to drive DENSO to craft the future of mobility.
Will Ripley explains, “We agree that IGNITE was an incredible experience for us as individuals, but I also can see the benefit it has for the company. By having experience with various locations and associates, we gained well-rounded knowledge of company, which helps us each to become the best versions of ourselves. At the same time, we have become multifaceted, highly trained and skilled assets to DENSO. It’s a win-win!”
Though they all entered and left the program with different skill sets and had different experiences in their rotations, they all agree that IGNITE gave them a better understanding of the company, its culture and the DENSO Spirit.
“One of my greatest takeaways from the IGNITE program is understanding and embracing the DENSO Spirit. I learned about its purpose and what it means to our culture, and then I recognized people who embrace it in everything they do. This inspired me to use the DENSO Spirit factors as my key motivation each day – I did this throughout my rotation and continue to do so today,” said Tanner Mann.
Congrats to our IGNITE Program graduates – we can’t wait to see where your careers take you and DENSO!
