DEW Launches New Website to Better Support Workforce Development, Employers and Jobseekers

The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW) has launched a new version of the website. The update not only refreshes the look and feel of the site, it also reorganizes the site’s navigation.

DEW reviewed site analytics and conducted internal interviews and focus groups in order to build and restructure the website. Some of the new features include a cleaner look and feel that improves readability of the site, homepage icons directly linking users to the most searched DEW information and new tabs that better align subject matter.

Always focused on the goal of connecting jobseekers and employers, the new website efficiently hosts information about unemployment, helping people find jobs, matching businesses with qualified candidates and collecting and disseminating state and federal statistics.

“We are excited to launch our new website. Our goal in developing this site was to help people easily find the information about benefits they may need and the services we provide. We are committed to assisting those in need and the businesses we serve efficiently and in a manner they deserve,” said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce.



The South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce is putting South Carolinians to work. The agency invests in building a pipeline of quality workers, matches workers with jobs, and is a bridge for individuals who find themselves out of work for no fault of their own. This promotes financial stability and economic prosperity for employers, individuals and communities. SCDEW is dedicated to advancing South Carolina through services that meet the needs of the state’s businesses, jobseekers and those looking to advance their careers.
