President - Ingalls Shipbuilding
Workforce availability and training are the key issues of our time. That is why employers favor states with workforce systems that cut the red tape and deliver effective training without delay. Our state leaders understood this issue, and it was through a huge effort on their part that the AccelerateMS office was created. Now, it is time to make the investment needed to fulfill the promise of that effort and transform our workforce system into the best in the nation.
President and CEO - The Vicksburg Warren County Partnership
AccelerateMS is a huge resource and asset to local communities and economic development agencies by identifying specific needs and capabilities of communities and developing a plan to meet the workforce demands. Business retention, expansion, and recruitment is dependent on a strong workforce strategy and AccelerateMS is streamlining workforce strategy for Mississippi communities.
