Attracting, Retaining, and Advancing West Virginia’s Workforce
4 Dec 2023
For decades, many of West Virginia’s young people have made the decision to leave the state. Oftentimes, leaving was a necessity. While they would have preferred to put their talents to use in their hometowns, the job opportunities they sought existed outside of our borders.
But it’s no secret that we’re seeing a shift in West Virginia. Longstanding businesses are expanding. New companies are choosing to open their doors in West Virginia, with record investments frequently making headlines. And, of course, that means more opportunities for West Virginians, with thousands of new jobs on the way.
