Last July, UPS signed the Pledge to America’s Workers in support of President Trump’s Workforce Development Initiative and committed to offer career advancement opportunities to over 50,000 union and non-union UPS employees.
As one of the world’s largest employers with more than 454,000 employees, UPS is a leader in delivering workforce training and mentorship programs that emphasize the development of professional skills, safety and efficiency. In 2017 alone, UPS invested nearly $1 billion in employee training programs.
The company’s training programs have helped employees across the country and around the world advance their careers. In fact, many UPS executives, including Chairman and CEO David Abney, started as part-time employees.
UPS provides various advancement opportunity programs in areas such as safety training, education assistance and veterans support. UPS Integrad, along with a Comprehensive Health and Safety Process (CHSP), help improve workplace safety and decrease accidents and injuries.
UPS offers three tuition assistance programs that help part- and full-time UPS employees achieve their educational goals. These programs include Earn & Learn; Metropolitan College in the Louisville, Kentucky area; and the Chicagoland Regional College Program.
For veterans, UPS offers a multitude of opportunities, such as Department of Labor-certified apprenticeships and U.S. Air Force-approved training programs.
