Reception to follow


In today's economic climate, attracting and retaining talented employees has become critical for all companies and communities. Those places that are having economic development success are not just recruiting companies, but also recruiting talented employees looking for career opportunities and a high quality of life for themselves and their families.

Recognizing that changing dynamic, the Upstate SC Alliance, in concert with Ten at the Top, the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce, Greenville Chamber of Commerce and Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, has developed a talent attraction and retention campaign designed to help local businesses and communities recruit employees with the talents needed to fill high skill and high wage jobs in the Upstate.

Join other elected officials, business and community leaders to learn about the exciting new campaign and how you and your community can utilize the tools and resources. You will also hear examples of communities cultivating their vibrancy and community message as well as resources and opportunities available for all communities in the Upstate.

Then stick around for a networking reception and get to know other elected officials and community leaders from across the Upstate.
