Lowe’s Companies Inc. recently announced an initiative to provide employees the financial support to pursue a skilled trade in an effort to help aid the skilled professional shortage in the labor and construction industries.

“Track to the Trades,” supported in partnership with adult education company Guild Education, launched last month in four cities, including Charlotte, North Carolina; Denver; Pittsburgh; and Richmond, Virginia.

Eligible employees receive up to $2,500 to get a certification and a pre-apprenticeship in carpentry, HVAC, electrical, plumbing or appliance-repair careers. Employees will also receive enrollment guidance and a field mentor.

"The trade profession is a high-demand, high-opportunity field for the next generation workforce, and today, there is a massive unmet need," said Jennifer L. Weber, Lowe's chief human resources officer.

"With Track to the Trades, we are providing unique career alternatives for our associates while also building a pipeline for the next generation of skilled trade workers, allowing us to better meet the demands of customers while creating long-term educational benefits and economic opportunity for our people."

The program will expand beyond the four pilot cities to nationwide employees by the end of the year.
