SC Work Ready Communities

January 29, 2013

Upstate leaders yesterday hosted a luncheon to start the SC Work Ready Communities initiative in Oconee, Anderson and Pickens counties. They’ve joined forces to raise awareness and build support for each county’s efforts to link education and work force development and align with the needs of the global community. Richard Blackwell, executive director of Oconee Economic Development Commission, said, “This program is a tool that will help our community on both the economic development recruitment front as well as with business retention efforts. It also demonstrates to the world that our State is serious about business as we are willing to work in partnerships amongst the various education providers, workforce development entities and economic development arms to advance th needs of our business community.”
