Industry & Innovation Student Employer Celebration
The Industry & Innovation Student Employer Celebration Event was held at Stephens County High School. Brent Farrar explained the program to the industry leaders in attendance and we heard three testimonials from past and present students. Leon Osborne shared a little on where our community can be in the next few years thanks to this program and the opportunities it provides for our students. He encouraged Industries to be involved and use this as a tool to build our local workforce.
The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
