PIERRE, S.D. – The Governor’s Office of Economic Development’s website – www.sdreadytowork.com – has a new look. The new site boasts plenty of fresh photography and videography, testimonials and success stories and a new, easy-to-use interactive finance tool.
“Making the website more intuitive and user friendly was a priority”, said Steve Westra, GOED Commissioner. “Governor Noem challenged us to have it launched by Feb. 19 and we’re pleased we met that deadline.”
“Overall our prospects and partners will find the site easier to use. One thing we are particularly proud of is the new finance incentive tool. If you’re a community, a company or a local economic development organization, the new interactive tool will allow you to sort through our programs to find the best program that fits your needs,” Westra added.
Users will also be able to easily search and add available properties, watch aerial tours of certified sites and subscribe to newsletters to stay up-to-date on agency and statewide milestones.
