Workforce Strategy

The creation of a statewide strategy for workforce development is among the priorities for Cheryl Stanton, who earlier this year was named the new Executive Director of South Carolina’s Department of Employment and Workforce. With a resurgence in manufacturing and the development of new logistics hubs in South Carolina, a shortage of new jobs is not as much of a problem as a need for more qualified applicants. On this program, we discuss the task of retraining the state’s unemployed and steering younger people to the career paths with the most promising futures. John Gessaman of Carolinas Gateway Partnership and Lewis Gossett of the S.C. Manufacturers Alliance join the conversation.
