Our Workforce

Critical factors in a firm's decision to relocate or expand are the availability of labor and labor market conditions. Fayetteville, Lincoln County, and the surrounding areas offer a strong, healthy labor supply of well trained or trainable employees. The Tennessee Industrial Training Service can custom design a training program for the specific needs of your firm.

The area can supply ample labor for industry due to an excellent highway system and a moderate climate. These two factors allow the employer to draw labor from a wider geographic area. The labor force in this area is characterized by an eagerness to learn, willingness to work, and a high level of productivity.

The area’s labor pool is further fed by the attrition of military personnel from nearby Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville (which will see a large net gain of personnel due to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure [BRAC] proceedings) and Arnold Air Force Base in Tullahoma.

The State’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development can provide assistance in the recruitment of qualified job applicants. Recruitment services can be provided and may include accepting and screening applications, testing, and referral of qualified applicants, based upon the company-prepared specifications.

The school systems of Fayetteville and Lincoln County are consistently rated among Tennessee's best, and our campus of Motlow State Community College boasts a state-of-the-art technical training center among its resources.
