CVS Health : opens Workforce Innovation and Talent Center in Pittsburgh

07/28/2021 | 04:24pm EDT

New location at Ebenezer Baptist Church is part of company's commitment to increase access to meaningful employment opportunities in underserved communities

WOONSOCKET, R.I. - CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) today announced it has opened its newest Workforce Innovation and Talent Center in Pittsburgh at Ebenezer Baptist Church. This location is part of the company's commitment to build on its highly successful faith-based and community partnerships to provide employment services and training to underserved populations, including individuals with disabilities, mature workers, youth and veterans.

'When people have access to employment opportunities, it puts them in a better position to focus on their health,' said David Casey, SVP and Chief Diversity Officer, CVS Health. 'By working with Ebenezer Baptist Church, we aim to take a more personalized approach to break down employment barriers and provide each participant the tools they need to be successful in the workplace - and more importantly, in life.'

The new Workforce Development and Training Center is located at 2001 Wylie Avenue. The center will offer training for individuals seeking employment as pharmacy technicians, customer service associates, call center associates and retail associates. It will include a simulated retail store that offers hands-on job training and will also have a fully functional restaurant, where participants can get on-site job training in restaurant services. Individuals who complete the program qualify to apply for a position at CVS Health.

'There are young kids in our neighborhood who didn't even have a fighting chance,' said Reverend Dr. Vincent Campbell. 'Because of this program and our work with CVS Health, these kids now have full stomachs, access to health care and parents who have jobs because their parents received the benefits of participating.'

CVS Health and Ebenezer Baptist Church are also focused on addressing the community's broader needs, like food insecurity and access to health care. The center will offer on-site supportive services to help participants succeed outside the workforce, including a health clinic, food pantry, a daycare, after-school programs and transportation assistance.

'On behalf of the City of Pittsburgh, I would like to thank CVS Health and the Ebenezer Baptist Church for working together to bring the Workforce Innovation and Talent Center to the Hill District, said William Peduto, Pittsburgh Mayor. 'We hope that this will serve as a model throughout the city for forging partnerships within our communities to create equitable, holistic, people-centered opportunities and break down employment barriers both in workforce training and additional support services.'

In addition to the new Pittsburgh location, the company operates Workforce Development and Training Centers in Cleveland, Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C.
