As today’s younger generations break into the workforce, they’re choosing where they want to live based on a location’s features and benefits—not just on where available positions are. In response to this trend, WEDC and its partners are exploring innovative ways to attract new talent and encourage recent graduates from the state’s colleges and universities to put down roots here.
Young professional organizations across Wisconsin bring smart people together to develop leadership, exchange ideas and educate potential employers on workforce retention.
