Labor Environment

In Tennessee, we are committed to maintaining and improving our reputation as a world-class business location. Tennessee is good for business, offering a beneficial labor environment, productive and educated work force, wonderful quality of life and wealth of technology resources. These factors combine to create a business climate that gives companies a winning edge in their long-term growth and profitability.

Located in the heart of the South, Tennessee has valuable accessibility to market resources and a growing transportation infrastructure. We've worked hard to eliminate red tape, improve customer service and create strong partnerships with local leaders.

We also realize that supporting our existing industries is just as crucial to our success as recruiting new business. Tennessee companies accounted for more that 70 percent of all new jobs created in the past year, and TNECD is committed to the growth and development of companies that already call the Volunteer State home.
