NC: The Best Workforce

Yesterday I got to announce the launch of the North Carolina Life Sciences Talent Community.

With Illinois and Texas battling for headlines on best place for biotech businesses, I stood up and said North Carolina has the best workforce.

It's thanks to many years of collaboration, our training partners at the community colleges and university system, and support from industry. Our companies fill 90 percent of their jobs locally, and quickly.

We want to add more people to that pipeline, and prove to the companies looking for expansion locations that North Carolina can provide, or attract, the best talent.

Initiatives like this drive home what it's all about - jobs.
