PNC's PartnerUp Program shrinking the skills gap
The statistics sound bleak: 70 percent of employers cite a skills gap between what they need and what’s available in the talent pool, and 22 percent of workers in the Pittsburgh region will be retiring within 10 years with no comparably-sized group to replace them.
This data is what drove PNC, with the help of the Consortium for Public Education, to spearhead PNC’s PartnerUp program with schools and major employers in southwestern Pennsylvania. “This program represents a shift in how PNC and others view the labor market. PNC is investing in talent in new ways, rather than just consuming it,” says Brianna McMeekin, a development program manager at PNC.

Women in business find allies at PNC
Just 30 years ago, women couldn’t access the financial resources they needed to start a business. Today, women-owned businesses are among the fastest-growing business segments in the United States. At PNC, we proudly serve the financial needs of women in business. During Women's History Month - and beyond - we invite you to be inspired by their stories.

Employee commutes: 27% reduction in GHG emissions
In 2011, 84 percent of PNC employees across the country were driving to work, with only 12 percent opting for public transport. According to a recently refreshed 2018 survey, the percentage of employees driving to work decreased to 69 percent while those using public transportation increased to 24 percent. This reduced the company’s associated greenhouse gas emissions by 27 percent.
PNC provides a variety of convenient, tax-advantaged commuter benefit options to offset the cost of commuting to work. Eligible parking and mass transit expenses can be paid through the convenience of payroll deduction, and make commuting to work easier through bus passes mailed to home or automatic funding of stored-value parking cards, to name a few options.
