GoldAwardAs innovative businesses continue to grow in Rock Hill, so does the need for skilled, qualified employees. Data from a 2015 Knowledge Economy Workforce Skills Assessment conducted by Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation (RHEDC) in conjunction with Winthrop University showed:

  • 50,000+ York County residents commute to Charlotte, NC every day
  • 80% of these commuters have skills essential to a knowledge economy
  • 65% would be willing to switch positions if a similar job was available in Rock Hill

In response to these findings, Rock Hill Economic Development developed a website exclusively for businesses and workers in the Rock Hill area designed to connect local knowledge economy jobs with qualified talent. We were able to reach outbound talent through a multi-faceted marketing campaign that directed candidates to our award-winning jobs website (2017 Gold Award – International Economic Development Council) to post resumes and explore knowledge economy positions available with successful companies in their own community.

Launched in January 2017, there are already 3,200+ candidates registered on the site.
