THE SOUTH BEND-ELKHART REGION IS BUSINESS FRIENDLY

Local leaders in the South Bend-Elkhart Region understand the importance of healthy businesses to a healthy economy. That’s why they take a welcoming attitude to companies and keep red tape to a minimum. It’s a big part of their approach to fiscal responsibility, which has kept local taxes low and the tax base stable and diverse. We’re also proud of our area’s low workers’ compensation premiums.

The communities of the South Bend-Elkhart Region treat businesses as partners, with generous incentive programs to help your company achieve productivity and profitability sooner, and training incentives to ensure that workers have the specific skills needed to meet your goals.
Those efforts are back by business-friendly attitudes at the state level, such as the fact that Indiana is a right-to-work state with a AAA bond rating and healthy cash reserves.
