MARYSVILLE — Honda of America officials this morning reaffirmed the company’s long-standing commitment to advance the skills of its current and future workforce by signing the White House’s Pledge to America’s Workers at its Technical Development Center located at the Honda Heritage Center in Marysville.
As part of its pledge, Honda committed to offering expanded job training opportunities for 50,000 workers in the next five years.
The pledge also includes a commitment to expand training programs in order to ensure that the company’s associates who design, produce, sell and service Honda products have the necessary education and training to succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology.
Additionally, Honda will continue to support and advocate for programs that educate future workers about manufacturing as a potential career.
“We applaud the White House’s efforts to equip the workforce of today and tomorrow with the skills needed to succeed and are honored to join the growing family of pledges,” Rick Schostek, executive vice president of Honda North America, Inc. and a board member of the National Association of Manufacturers, said in a release.
“Honda’s success has always been dependent on our dedicated and skilled associates. As we embark on our fifth decade of manufacturing products in America, we remain committed to creating new opportunities to help the next generation workforce develop the critical skills needed to compete in the modern age of mobility.”
