Workforce shortages are a primary concern for businesses and economic developers throughout the country. For economic developers, this creates a clear and urgent challenge – find workers to support existing businesses or risk them going elsewhere. The same is true for business attraction. Economic developers seeking new investment must have a workforce attraction strategy the supports that growth.
This presentation and whitepaper provides economic developers with the baseline information they need to understand the workforce shortage issues, and to create a plan to address it. During this presentation the speakers will share best practices that have been used by economic developers throughout the country to strengthen and grow their workforce. Learn from them, develop a plan, and start implementing. Your local businesses and community are counting on you.
In the game of workforce attraction, there will be clear winners and clear losers. Some communities will growth their population while others may see their population decline. This presentation and whitepaper, Ron Kresha, COO of Golden Shovel Agency and Bethany Quinn, VP of Strategy & Content Development, show economic developers how to get on the winning side – for themselves and their communities.
