Honda Future Workforce

Workforce Initiatives

In 2015, Honda launched an innovative $1 million Ohio-based workforce development initiative, called EPIC, to create interest in manufacturing careers and provide educational and training opportunities.


The EPIC program has been the starting point for activity across all Honda operations designed to prepare the next generation workforce for high-tech positions in the manufacturing industry.


Honda is proactively addressing the skills gap in U.S. manufacturing by engaging in programs for middle school to community college students, as well as focusing on current team members.


EPIC draws its name from four key areas of the initiative. Click on the boxes to learn more about each key area.
