Leaders from advanced manufacturing and high technology – two of the key industries driving New Hampshire’s economy – joined us this week for focus groups conducted by Development Counsellors International, which specializes in economic development and talent attraction and has been working with us on campaigns to highlight these industries to a national audience.
These in-depth discussions explored the challenges companies are having in finding employees; challenges our state is not alone in facing these days.
Anne Struthers and Carol Miller from our division organized the sessions and report robust discussion from the participants.
This information now lays the groundwork for creating a marketing campaign to retain and attract the workforce New Hampshire needs so that our companies increase their competitiveness, grow and prosper.
