Lunch & Learn – Cutting the Red Tape

October 23, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Cutting The Red Tape: Federal and State Incentives to Recruit and Retain Your Workforce

The war to find…and keep…a productive and engaged workforce has never been fiercer, with the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years. If you are like most manufacturing managers, workforce concerns keep you up at night. Hiring and training the right people are crucial to your business and you don’t take that lightly.

Amazon recently announced they would be spending $700M to retrain over 100,000 workers in new skills by 2025. While most training budgets are not that large, to remain competitive, it will be critical to maximize your training dollars and there are ways to do just that.

South Carolina’s pro-business climate provides a number of financial incentives for business and industry; however, most employers do not know they exist or, if they do, they do not want the hassle of more paperwork and rules. Could you be leaving money on the table?

Do not miss this opportunity to understand how to utilize the various incentives to help your company help achieve long-term growth and development for your company.

Seminar Outcomes include:

1. Identify proven strategies for employee recruitment and retention.
