great places work live
The Upstate SC Alliance has launched the “Move Up” campaign to showcase towns in a 10-county region as great places to work and live. The announcement was made at the 2019 Annual Meeting, with nearly 500 business leaders in attendance.

More than 10,000 employers posted more than 200,000 unique jobs in the Upstate within the last year. Business growth fuels opportunities for talent. And, talent fuels opportunity for business to grow.


The initiative, “Move Up” includes a brand and website,, which promote great places to work and live across the 10-county Upstate region. “Workforce has quickly become a top factor as companies consider whether to locate or expand in our region,” said John Lummus, Upstate SC Alliance President & CEO. “Our region has the right ingredients not only to meet business needs, but also to provide fulfilling careers and a rich lifestyle. Move Up is here to help employers and our communities tell that story.”

Upstate employers can use while recruiting candidates in a variety of professional fields, including: manufacturing + engineering; financial services; information + communications technology; education; life sciences + healthcare; architecture, construction + engineering; and creative services.


The Upstate SC Alliance worked with Development Counsellors International (DCI) to create the Move Up brand and website, with support from the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce, the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Ten at the Top.


Target audiences include established professionals in multiple industries and college students looking to launch their careers. Check out the promotional video below.
