Catapult launched at the start of 2021, when Capital Associated Industries of Raleigh and the Triad and The Employers Association of Charlotte merged to form a new, more powerful organization that serves more than 2,300 employers across North Carolina and beyond. The merger brings together the collective expertise of two well-respected associations, founded in the late 1950s and early 1960s, to help employers address their biggest challenges in creating exceptional workplaces.
Catapult’s team of seasoned HR and business professionals help member companies address both immediate and long-term challenges through a library of resources, data-driven insights and expertise, and a dynamic member community. Further, the association facilitates peer-to-peer connections among members to support the broader business community and acts as an employer advocate within the context of governmental standards and regulation. Finally, Catapult actively collects and analyzes salary, benefits, and policy data to issue business intelligence that helps employers compete for, attract, and retain top talent.
Catapult focuses on helping its members achieve HR operational excellence, peer and community connection, and competitive insight. The team delivers on this promise through high-touch, personal interaction that’s only possible because they’re located locally, with boots on the ground in the region they serve.
