Plan for Retention « Back to Search Results

Keeping businesses here in Wisconsin is one of our objectives at the Pierce County Economic Development Corporation. Our goal is to stimulate the economy by attracting new businesses, retaining existing ones and creating jobs. We share this mission with the Wisconsin Economic Development Association (WEDA).

One of their recent events was a conference on retention, teaching people how to use data to run analysis and how to recognize red flags that a company may be looking to move. If you are interested in economic development or strengthening the local economy, WEDA conferences are a “must-attend” and we highly recommend them. View WEDA events here.
