Intrapreneur Friendly

United has a long history of leading aviation technology trends among its competitors, including many “firsts” and high-profile accomplishments such as recently becoming the first airline to offer customers Uber transportation services via the United mobile app.  Maintaining a technology leadership position takes energy, creativity, perseverance, and adaptability – not surprisingly, some of the same qualities it takes to be innovative.  Learn about how United takes an “Intrapreneur” approach to empower employees to take ownership of their ideas and drive them through a clearly defined process from concept to reality.
