“The Office Group” was established this year, in McDonough, as a business incubator so businesses had a place to meet and get training. “Trade Law Training”, was also established this year, as the need became clear for sharing this knowledge of how to work your way through this complex set of rules while still helping your companies become more profitable. Trained employees are the key. It helps the employee see the critical link they are in the supply chain and how to keep those links strong going forward while showing the employee how valuable they are in this shifting market.
