Talent Wars: Best and Next Practices in Marketing Your Community

Talent makes or breaks corporate relocation decisions. With record low unemployment and a decrease in migration, communities are at war to attract and retain talent. The leader in marketing places, Development Counsellors International (DCI), surveyed thousands of working individuals to understand what they look for in a job and a community—and what factors will seal the deal when they’re considering relocating for a new job opportunity. This presentation will showcase the top findings from DCI’s seminal research report, “Talent Wars: What People Look for in Jobs and Locations,” as well as top talent case studies from communities. From work-life balance to compensation and benefits, cities and regions can profit from understanding the hierarchy of needs when it comes to marketing their communities to talent.
