It’s back to campus for spring recruitment at Trane Technologies! During this time of year, our Early Talent team travels across the country to visit universities and get to know students like you. As we hit the road, we want to give you a chance to get to know us and learn a little more about our company culture.

Want to connect with us? Then come see us on campus and check out our campus tour dates below! We hope to meet you!

Shannon Wade

Shannon Wade, Talent Acquisition Partner, Early Talent

I am a Talent Acquisition Partner on our Early Talent team, supporting recruitment for our enterprise internship program and Accelerated Development Program (ADP) in Operations, Marketing, and Accounting/Finance. I am an alum of the Ingersoll Rand’s enterprise internship program and ADP in Human Resources - so, it is particularly exciting to be on campus talking to students about the specific career path I chose when I was in their shoes as a student at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!).

What would you share with students on our organizational culture?

My favorite thing about Trane Technologies culture to share with students is our focus on innovation. No matter the functional area of the business you work within, you have the freedom to be creative in adding a new perspective or in experimenting with new concepts. Sometimes you are successful, sometimes you “fail fast,” - and each is a celebrated outcome in our business. I learned so much through the ability to try new approaches and fail within a safety net of mentors, colleagues, & business leaders that applauded the courage to try something we had not before.

I hope you will stop by and say “hello.” In addition to chatting about Ingersoll Rand, you can always find me ready to talk about traveling, my two bulldogs (Jolene & Louise) and your favorite food recommendations near campus. 


Audrey Uczen, Talent Acquisition Partner, Early Talent

I am primarily responsible for recruiting early talent to participate in our sales internships and full-time Graduate Training Program (GTP) for the Trane Commercial business.  I have been with Trane Technologies for almost four years, starting my career as a human resources intern for Trane. I recently completed the Accelerated Development Program, rotating across various business units and locations within Trane Technologies, and am now based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

I graduated with a B.S. in Business Management from Appalachian State University and earned a MHR from the University of South Carolina. I enjoy cold brew coffee, keeping up with fashion and traveling to new places.

What would you share with campus talent on our organizational culture?

Our published Ingersoll Rand culture and values are truly reflective of what I experience day-to-day. As a recent graduate of the Human Resources early talent rotational program, I am now in my fifth role and team with the company. I spend more waking time with my coworkers than with my friends and family, so it is important for me to work alongside people who share the same values and enable a diverse and inclusive culture. Our employees make up our culture, and our culture is why I choose to continue working for Trane Technologies.

Crystal Williams, Talent Acquisition Partner, Early Talent

I am a Talent Acquisition Partner for Trane, a brand of Trane Technologies, focused on attracting top candidates for our early talent technical sales engineering program. Prior to joining Trane Technologies seven years ago, I was a Sales Account Manager for a high-tech print manufacturing company, where I managed a defined territory to create growth strategies that improved market share and increased net profit. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration Management from Liberty University. To unwind, I enjoy watching football with friends and family (a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan!). I also enjoy traveling and reading self-empowerment books; always seeking opportunities to continue learning and growing.

What would you share with campus talent on our organizational culture?

I am proud to work for a company that is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equality by creating an environment where employees are encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work every day.

What would you share with campus talent on our organizational culture?

What I have seen consistently throughout my time with Trane Technologies is how much people care for one another both professionally and personally. The employees at Trane Technologies push each other to be the best we can be in and outside of work. Trane Technologies has a strong commitment to our employees as a whole person!  I am excited to meet you while on campus, and I would love to share my personal experiences of Trane Technologies amazing culture with you.
