• Advancing Sustainability Goal

      Each year through 2030, we will deliver future-ready skills development for workers in our supply chain

      Through our global supply chain, thousands of people work to bring Dell Technologies products and services to life. Like everyone, they want to do meaningful work, develop new skills and progress in their careers. We are working to identify critical skills for the future, provide team members with the skills and training they need to improve their lives and advance their careers, and support our suppliers' efforts to do the same.

    Total number of future-ready skills training hours at in-house manufacturing locations

    This goal's measurement is based on calendar year data. In CY20, Dell team members completed 6,592 hours of future-ready skills training at our in-house factories. This represents a 48% decrease compared to our CY19 baseline. We attribute this decrease to COVID-19 protocols introduced to protect health and safety and limited training delivery opportunities for our in-house factories. We expect to return to our previous performance levels as pandemic-related impacts are mitigated.9

    CY20 Baseline: 99,721
    Total number of future-ready skills training hours in supply chain
