Greater Minnesota’s Resident Recruitment Advantage

Resident Recruitment

 

People choosing to move to communities in rural Minnesota are motivated by factors beyond jobs, such as community amenities, opportunities for social life and many others.

On September 29, 2021, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development released an article which mentioned several Greater Minnesota initiatives aimed at recruiting new residents, including “Where Two Rivers Meet,” which promotes living and loving life in the Thief River Falls area.

People choosing to move to communities in rural Minnesota are motivated by factors beyond jobs, such as community amenities, opportunities for social life and many others. The evidence compiled by the University of Minnesota Extension (noted in the article) and demonstrated by communities across the state is far more compelling than the anecdotal arguments that informed industrial recruitment strategies of the past. As the competition for labor heats up across the nation, resident recruitment efforts and innovative practices will help communities and regions of Minnesota – as well as the state as a whole – stand out as great places to work and live.
