DEW Executive Director Cheryl Stanton’s Statement
October 2018 Employment Statement
“South Carolina is enjoying the benefit of a strong economy coupled with simultaneous record high employment levels and a continued record low unemployment rate. It is during these thriving times that our agency must work harder than ever to connect with individuals who have had challenges along the path to employment,” said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce. “The dynamic partnerships with industry, education, local workforce areas, nonprofits and more continue to develop a statewide pipeline of workers ready to fill jobs that support the state’s businesses, creating sustainable careers.”
The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW) is putting South Carolinians to work. The agency invests in building a pipeline of quality workers, matches workers with jobs, and is a bridge for individuals who find themselves out of work for no fault of their own. This promotes financial stability and economic prosperity for employers, individuals and communities. DEW is dedicated to advancing South Carolina through services that meet the needs of the state’s businesses, jobseekers and those looking to advance their careers.
