The shortage of workers to fill available jobs continues to be a high priority issue in communities across Wisconsin. Increasingly, economic developers have been looking to add talent attraction initiatives to their local and regional workforce development strategies to help address the limited workforce supply.

Through this course, essential components of workforce attraction will be introduced including a discussion of using data to support and develop initiatives. Targeted attraction opportunities - focusing on out-of-state recruitment, transitioning military service members, and justice involved individuals - will be explored. Examples of successful talent attraction efforts, including best practices, will be shared throughout the program with an in-depth look at initiatives underway in the La Crosse area.

  • Essential components of workforce attraction, including best practices
