Tar Heel Basement Systems Takes the One Job Challenge

Friday, August 10th, 2012


The City of Greensboro has started an initiative to bring the local workforce back to life. During these tough economic times, the Greensboro business community has started a campaign to put people back to work. The goal of this program is to challenge businesses and employers to hire at least one new employee over a period of a year. Modeled after One Job for America campaign and the Hire One Program in Atlanta, One Job for Greensboro hopes for 1,000 new hires and $191,964,936 annual direct impact on the local economy.

Tar Heel Basement Systems has risen to this challenge. In fact, they have risen above the challenge of hiring 7 new full-time employees since November 2011. The owner, Pete Burgess, is ecstatic that not only is his company thriving during this economic hardship, but also that he can contribute to the cause. Tar Heel Basement Systems will continue to pledge to try to hire a new employee each year and help the local economy.

Tar Heel Basement Systems, along with other local companies that have hired at least one new full-time employee since August 2011, will be recognized at the State of Our Community Luncheon, Wednesday, August 29th. The program will focus on sharing the key findings of recently completed research for Greensboro area businesses regarding local workforce issues, including solutions and success stories for dealing with them.

Congratulations, Tar Heel Basement Systems!
