Hawkes Learning Named One of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina Again!

Rachel and Emily sitting at a table at the Best Places to Work in South Carolina banquet.

Earlier this month, Hawkes Learning joined other South Carolina businesses at Columbia’s Metropolitan Convention Center to celebrate being one of South Carolina’s Best Places to Work!

The statewide program—managed by Best Companies Group—identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the state of South Carolina for benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. Only 70 businesses in South Carolina received this distinguished award for 2017, so we are very grateful we are counted among those organizations!

“I love working at Hawkes because my coworkers are the best,” says Educational Courseware Specialist Taylor. We tend to agree.

All of us at Hawkes appreciate the honor!
