PNC Learning Boosts Employee Engagement

As a bank, PNC Learning in many ways — through formal training programs and stretch assignments that may lead to new roles. The bank also offers employees a variety of education benefits like its recently announced partnership with Guild, one of the leading on-line education and upskilling platforms for employers.

Through a new tuition benefit, employees have access to more than 400 learning programs offered through Guild’s catalog with fully-funded options in accounting, business administration, finance, cybersecurity, information technology and people management leadership. Programs are available in a range of subjects in both English and Spanish.

Unlocking Potential: The Philosophy Behind PNC Learning

PNC’s Sherry Manning has a special passion for children and loves volunteering with the Grow Up Great initiative, which champions early childhood education. “I believe if you can give kids the love of learning in their early years, it will impact them for a lifetime,” she says. Throughout the year, PNC employees give back with thousands of volunteer hours. They work with local schools and community centers to help children read, build tricycles and wagons, paint, plant and more.

At the Hawthorne Community Center in Anderson, Indiana, Sherry teaches children financial literacy by helping them budget for their wants and needs and learn how to save. It’s a small part of what the bank calls its commitment to helping kids learn and grow, which includes supporting teachers through grants, volunteerism and awareness efforts.
