Supporting People for Sustainable Growth
We hire and inspire our teams to be next-generation thinkers and responsible stewards of our industry, greater community and the environment. And, through training and supporting our customers & partners, we strive to help them strengthen and grow their businesses. We also work to build a thriving industry workforce—supporting the recruitment and empowerment of tomorrow's plumbers & contractors, leading the way to a prosperous future, together.

Our 2025 Commitment to Inspired People

By 2025, Rheem® will train 250,000 plumbers, contractors and key influencers on sustainable products or sustainable installation & recycling best practices.

The Innovation
Learning Center

Our state-of-the-art education centers help us ensure that Rheem pros have the skills they need to install our equipment correctly and thrive in business.

Our global GoodWorks Explorer program is a volunteer opportunity for Rheem employees around the globe to bring new ideas to the table in support of our sustainability initiatives. By becoming a GoodWorks Explorer, those who are passionate about sustainability are able to help us turn that passion into action—and that may just make a big difference for us all.
