During the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, GE Appliances joined with United Way Worldwide to create the GEA4Heroes program to provide thousands of appliances to healthcare workers and first responders. More than ever, appliances were needed to keep food and medicine safe, laundry and dishes clean and sanitized, and food prepared for families and teams. The needs-based donations were delivered to frontline workers in nearly every state in the U.S. GE Appliances is honored to support the men and women who are protecting our communities.

Workforce Development

GE Appliances has been a leader in developing many of Louisville’s workforce development plans by investing in educational programs and developing new ways of promoting manufacturing careers. This included the creation of the Greater Louisville chapter of the Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (KYFAME), a work-and-learn program in which recent high school graduates are paid for 40-hours a week, including the two days spent in community college classes and graduate after two years practically debt-free with an associate’s degree in manufacturing technology.

The company has also re-established a long-dormant apprenticeship program for incumbent workers interested in upgrading their skills and increasing their earnings. And GE Appliances serves on the steering committee of Jefferson County Public Schools' Academies of Louisville initiative to ensure that more students graduate college and career ready. We are the premier business partner for the manufacturing career pathway at Doss High School.

The company also created GEA2DAY, a flexible workforce opportunity for high school and college students and others seeking part-time positions to work shifts on Mondays and Fridays and gain eligibility for tuition reimbursement up to $6,000 a year. In addition, we are a lead employer in Louisville Metro Government’s SummerWorks program, which provides high school students with full-time positions and training to alleviate youth unemployment.
