Johnson Controls, Milwaukee, spoke on the CareerConnect partnership model at HVAC Excellence Educators

CareerConnect is Johnson Controls’ partnership program with selected technical colleges, universities and colleges through North American aimed at assisting infaculty development, increasing community awareness and building a pipeline of technical recruits.

CareerConnect developed from the need to implement a program reacting toward the pending shortage of skilled HVAC professionals who are due to retire shortly. An estimated 40% of our workforce is eligible to retire in the next 10 years, due to the upcoming retirements of the Baby Boomer era.

In 2004, Johnson Controls began to study how this trend would affect its service business.
