NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments received a planning grant to convene economic development partners to determine how to build a regional infrastructure for coordinating seamless workforce and economic development activities for the Research Triangle region of North Carolina. The resulting partnership, Triangle Worksource (TWS), supports regional business and economic development efforts for recruitment, expansion, and rapid response activities. TWS projects include a website to educate businesses about services, videos to promote the partnership, a regional candidate database, and job boards. Regular meetings allow business service representatives from all participating boards to coordinate on-the-job training opportunities, recruiting assistance, and candidate referrals for companies throughout the region.
