CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A global human resources consulting company whose plans to expand in North Carolina's banking center were stalled by the financial crisis says it's now ready to hire hundreds in the next three years.
North Carolina officials said Wednesday Hewitt Associates has again been awarded financial incentives to spur the company's expansion. The company employs about 530 in North Carolina and plans to add about 460 jobs in Mecklenburg County.
The Lincolnshire, Ill.-based company last December canceled a 2005 incentives deal worth up to $8 million because plans to bring 900 new jobs to Charlotte fell apart because of the banking crisis.
The new deal would give the company up to $4 million for creating and sustaining the new jobs.
