The Greenville Chamber of Commerce has reveiewed its list of top successes and top challenges for 2018.  

The Chamber recognizes the hiring of Adrea Turner as director of talent and workforce solutions as the most impactful progress. Onboarding Turner, the Chamber says, made a substantial improvement for the passage of expungement legislation, the execution of LaunchGVL, and the creation of the Workforce Data Collaborative.

Greenville Chamber’s Accelerate initiative continues to work on its four strategies: growing new company headquarters, positioning workforce for 21st-century opportunities, increasing the number and performance of minority-owned businesses and leading transformative projects. 

It also acknowledged the No. 1 challenge faced by Greenville employers is attracting and retaining a skilled workforce. The challenge is being addressed by the Chamber by facilitating a business-led approach through strategic, data-driven talent recruitment and workforce development efforts.

The organization also noted the improvement of its economic development initiative – Accelerate – and its NEXT program. NEXT is one avenue for Accelerate’s “growing new company headquarters” strategy and it now has three succsessful locations. Greenville has been recently named by Bloomberg as the Silicon Valley of the South.
