Pourquoi choisir la Caroline du Nord
- Skilled, productive workers…..
Companies seeking a diverse, skilled, productive and willing workforce can find exactly what they’re looking for in North Carolina. With a population of more than 10 million, North Carolina offers an abundance of workers with a wide array of skills. In addition, the state’s increasingly knowledge-driven workforce offers companies strategic advantages in the global war for talent.
A labor force of more than 4.5 million serves a wide range of industries from financial services, biopharmaceutical research and manufacturing, information technology, chemicals and plastics to construction, advanced manufacturing, bus assembly and education.
Over the last four years, only four other states recorded higher levels of migration from other parts of the country. This diversity brings a depth of knowledge. The overwhelming majority of these new North Carolinians have two or more years of prior industry experience to offer.
Our state has the lowest unionization rate in the country and a right-to-work law. To help control costs, unemployment insurance is below the national average and workers’ compensation programs permit self insurance below industry rates.
North Carolina’s workforce development network comprises an extensive system of nationally-recognized workforce development organizations that work collaboratively to provide North Carolina's businesses with a workforce that is talented and qualified, and to train that workforce to reflect the productive and innovative culture necessary to ensure long-term success in today's economy.
The workforce development network partners supplying cost-saving recruiting, screening and training services includes the North Carolina Department of Commerce, local workforce development boards, the North Carolina Community College System, the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC), and a variety of other related public and private organizations.
- Exceptional educational opportunities
North Carolina offers one of the nation’s most renowned education systems, supplying companies a steady stream of talented workers while providing its citizens ample opportunities to learn, grow and thrive in the 21st Century economy.
North Carolina’s education commitment is evident in its leadership in:
* Early education, especially pre-kindergarten programs
* Public schools where students are performing above national averages
* Higher education system where we educate more than 300,000 students a year.
- Proximity to major markets…North Carolina’s central location on the eastern seaboard and excellent transportation network makes it an optimal point for access to markets and customers, keeping freight and delivery costs low.
Including, 4 major airports, 100 domestic and international destinations, the ports of Wilmington and Morehead City, the largest consolidated rail system in the country, the second largest highway system in the nation and 170 million US and Canadian customers within 700 miles of our border.
- Competitive operating cost structure: According to an Ernst & Young report, North Carolina has one of the nation’s lowest effective business tax rates. Overall, North Carolina’s moderate state and local business taxes are lower than neighboring states. North Carolina employers enjoy some of the lowest workers’ compensation costs in the nation thanks to a program that is well-managed and features reasonable, fiscally responsible policies. North Carolina consistently has among the lowest average unemployment rates in the nation, and its average unemployment cost of $249.77 is well below the national average of $278.06, based on data released by the U.S. Department of Labor for the third quarter of 2006.
- As far as incentives and grants, those are calculated on a case by case basic locally – depending upon the number of jobs to be created, the wages and types of those jobs, the industry and the amount of investment building and/or machinery and equipment.

Summer theaters, wineries and festivals abound throughout the state. In addition to hosting symphonies, ballets, and other performing arts, North Carolina is the birthplace of outdoor drama. A nationally recognized zoological park and fine system of aquariums support wildlife education.
Recreational opportunities range from celebrated golf courses to outdoor sports, to college and professional athletics.
