Hancock County, Indiana has been a longtime home to the life sciences industry. Today, we’re home to Elanco Animal Health’s global headquarters and major operations for pharmaceutical development leader Covance, so we have a highly skilled local workforce that’s well-acquainted with the unique needs and challenges of companies working to improve healthcare and the quality of life.
Our county has a strong labor shed to draw upon, with more than 1.3 million workers living within an hour’s drive of our communities. State and local education providers are constantly strengthening that workforce through highly focused classes and programs. For example, our local high schools introduce students to real-world biomedical practices, and nearby Ivy Tech Community College campuses offer postsecondary courses in high-demand areas such as biotechnology, chemical technology, and nanotechnology.
All that means your company can count on a steady supply of people with the skills and motivation needed to help you achieve your objectives.
