Development Initiative

NASHVILLE - Thanks to a program announced today by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Tennessee employers can now make it easier for workers to pursue their education. The new TN Chamber/GED Works™ program aims to create a better-educated and prepared Tennessee workforce as part of the Chamber's Workforce Development Initiative. Data shows that over three hundred thousand Tennesseans are currently employed in the workforce and did not complete their high school education.

Launched nationally last year, GED Works helps adult learners attain their GED® credentials with the support of their employers. Just as importantly, it gives these employees momentum to pursue advanced education and training. The Tennessee Chamber is partnering with GED Testing Services to offer employers access to the program.

Here are 5 reasons to give your residents to shop locally this year.

Shop Local!Improve our local economy.
Remember that every time you spend a dollar, you are impacting the big picture of our hometown and contributing to community liveliness. Most likely, the small businesses you are patronizing are owned by someone who lives in our community. That means that the money you spend locally will be recycled back into our local economy.

Generate opportunity.
Not only do locally owned businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, they are the customers of other local businesses, which in turn creates an expansion of opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
