Throughout the country, economic developers are pressured to create a workforce attraction plan. Without the right workforce, local companies can’t grow and new ones won’t consider relocating. Realizing this, EDBs have asked economic developers to attract talent, encourage college grads to move back home and increase population numbers.
Few economic developers know where to start.
This is where Golden Shovel comes in. We guide economic developers through the process of creating a workforce attraction plan. For a limited time, we are offering access to workforce attraction tools for FREE. These tools will point you in the right direction for solving your workforce challenges.
