South Carolina Work Ready Communities (SCWRC) is a tool used to measure the quality and capability of a county’s workforce.
Recently, the last county in South Carolina received that certification.
Many states have Work Ready programs; the Palmetto State is the only state in the nation to have 100 percent certification.
"The business community has made clear that having a skilled and highly trained workforce is the most critical piece of the puzzle for them in today’s highly competitive business environment," South Carolina Chamber of Commerce President Ted Pitts said. "Gov. (Nikki) Haley, our state, and county leaders all deserve a lot of credit for being focused on improving our state’s workforce."
Pitts remarked on the importance of this achievement for the state. "Being the first fully-certified Work Ready state in the nation is a big deal and I can guarantee that business leaders around the world looking to locate their operations and grow will consider this another important indication that the Palmetto State is the best place in the country to do business," he added.
