Illinois Business Hub

Welcome to the Business Hub!  The mission of this virtual business area is to provide all business owners, entrepreneurs, and information seeking employers a centralized location to find free services, resources, and tools that help plan, expand, and grow workforce and businesses throughout the state.  Whether it be finding qualified job candidates, training your workforce, or navigating through employment regulations and taxes the hub is for you. 

This site is new and still in its “beta” or “soft launch” phase of development. This means it needs your help to make it the best business site ever!  We invite you to explore the site and encourage you to please give us your feedback and recommendations on content, navigation, and whatever else you feel would make it great.   See something you don’t like?  See something missing? What kind of business information or app would make your life easier?  Let us know.
