Finding the right workforce
Monday, July 03, 2017
Businesses relocate for a variety of reasons, but finding a skilled pool of workers is one of the most common. Change is hard, but for some companies relocation means the difference between stagnating and growing.
If your company can’t find suitable workers after publishing numerous ads on websites and actively searching, the next step is finding where your workers actually are. It’s smart to contact state and regional groups interested in attracting new business.
The Iowa Lakes Corridor offers relocating help. See here. Led by the Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corporation, the area actively seeks to match qualified workers with businesses in the area. For example, the Home Base Iowa Initiative is attracting vets to the area. See here. And the Spencer Quality Housing Initiative is making new homes even more affordable for local workers. See here.
