Better talent attraction and retention.

It’s a proven paradigm: Better talent = greater success. A classic example is Panel Built, Inc. In seven facilities across Georgia and Tennessee, Panel Built manufactures structural products ranging from custom modular offices to pre-assembled exterior buildings and cleanrooms. According to Operations Manager Lee Baenning, the Blue Ridge facility is the highest revenue producer. And a key factor is workforce.

“The character of our workforce is very reliable, and we have very little turnover in our Blue Ridge facility. Our employees love to work in this region, and we have a lot of our folks want to work in this facility because of Fannin. Our employees love being in this area.”

The relocation of existing staff goes more smoothly when they are introduced to Fannin County life—which also makes our county the ideal location for a remote office.

If your operation needs new employees, Fannin County helps you attract and retain the best, leveraging the expertise of the Blue Ridge Career Center, the local office of WorkSource Georgia offering one-stop recruitment and screening assistance.
