Who is Stanley Black & Decker?
We are the leader in tools and security. We are STANLEY Tools. We are DeWalt. We are Mac Tools. We are Porter-Cable. We are the doors that protect you at airports. We are the hydraulic breakers that rescue trapped earthquake survivors. We are the people on the phone in an emergency. No matter where you live, what car you drive, what stores you shop at, or what building you work in, you can bet that we had a hand in making it work.
The Stanley Black & Decker Leadership Development Program (“SLP”) is a high-profile rotational program that is an integrated process for accelerating the development of our future leaders. This program offers high-potential, early-career associates the opportunity to complement quality work experiences with exposure to challenging learning and development experiences.
Program members participate in a comprehensive learning curriculum, developed to strengthen skills and tools to become a results-driven leader. The curriculum is aligned to the Stanley Black & Decker Operating Model which allows SLP associates to take a deep-dive into how we sustain our competitive advantage through an ever-changing and increasingly volatile external environment – allowing us to compete (and win) in the 2020s and beyond. Each SLP will join a group of cross-functional SLP associates to take part in a series of training weeks with a blended approach to learning. Along the way, this program offers invaluable experiences for these high-potential employees seeking challenging opportunities to jump-start a successful career!
