Continuing Our Commitment to Support U.S. Workforce Development - United Hub

We continue in our commitment to support U.S. workforce development

By United Airlines, August 02, 2018

Providing our employees with on-the-job training and educational opportunities has long been a priority at our airline, and in the spirit of continuing in those efforts, this week we joined other U.S. corporations in signing the White House's "Pledge to America's Workers."

The pledge reaffirms our commitment to equipping our employees with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the modern workplace. As part of that vision, we expect to invest in the career advancement of nearly 16,000 front-line and management employees over the next five years through leadership development programs.

We continually invest in enterprise-wide leadership development and functional training, helping our employees acquire the skills they need to stay at the forefront of innovation in the industry, said Human Resources and Labor Relations EVP Kate Gebo. "The act of signing the pledge is a formal nod to the importance we place on our people and the fact that we see them as central to our ambition of becoming the world's best airline."
