North Carolina consistently leads Southern states in workforce development, due in part to the NCWorks initiative that connects employers to the skilled workers or the customized employee training they need to prosper.
Launched in 2014, NCWorks aligns services and resources to meet the workforce needs of businesses while connecting North Carolinians to technical training and quality careers.
NCWorks is the industry gateway to critical workforce resources that have already helped North Carolina become the No. 1 state in the Atlantic region in workforce development. North Carolina ranks ahead of Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, West Virginia, Delaware and Maryland, according to Site Selection magazine.
