In support of President Donald J. Trump’s Pledge to America’s Workers, Boeing has pledged to provide enhanced career opportunities for more than 100,000 current and future U.S. employees over the next five years.
The company previously announced a $300 million investment in Boeing employees and communities as a result of U.S. tax reform, with $100 million dedicated to workforce development.

As part of that pledge, Boeing will offer a combination of increased work-based learning (including apprenticeships and internships), continuing education, on-the-job training and re-skilling.
These programs come after the company crowdsourced more than 40,000 ideas from employees through an online survey and dozens of “Idea Stations” at Boeing sites worldwide.
“When we asked our people how best to invest in their learning and development they spoke up loud and clear,” said Heidi Capozzi, senior vice president of Human Resources.
“We listened and read every single idea that was submitted.”
“Our long-term plans represent a down payment on the future of our employees and tomorrow’s technical workforce.”
Specifically, Boeing has committed to:
- Partner with Degreed.com to provide employees at all levels with access to online lessons, certification courses and degree programs.
- This partnership builds on existing learning and development resources, including the Boeing Leadership Center, rotational programs and Learning Together Program, which provides up to $25,000 per year for employees’ college tuition, books and fees. Boeing has invested more than $1 billion in the Learning Together Program to date.

- Invest in several major re-skilling programs to help employees enhance technical skills and understand industry trends, tools and technologies.
- Initial programs will focus on digital literacy, engineering and supply chain.
