The info businesses want

4 Jul 2016


One YCDC’s primary goals is to attract businesses to York County. This is a challenging endeavor, but one that can be made simpler by good data. We invested in a labor study by Smart Solutions so that we can have powerful information at hand to help convince business prospects.

The final study outlines the availability of skilled labor and the cost of labor—two crucial factors in site selection. It will include a model for key target areas (advanced manufacturing, logistics, agribusiness) as well as information on the workforce for a given industry.

A Wage & Salary Report was completed is available to guide existing and potential employers in establishing fair and competitive salaries.

Also, included was a skills gap analysis, and ideas for mitigating the skills gap. This analysis will inform program development at the new York Regional Learning Center.  YCDC is also taking the lead on establishing a workforce task-force in York County to identify additional steps.
