The connection between talent attraction and primary job growth is unmistakable, making it extremely important that, together, we remain focused on the deliberate strategies that will create lasting results. In 2016, the Greater Wichita Partnership launched an extensive research initiative with local businesses to garner key insights on talent recruitment gaps, which, if addressed, could significantly impact talent recruitment and retention efforts within the region.

Jeff Fluhr and Léah Sakr Lavender of the Greater Wichita Partnership team will share an update on the organization's progress in fast-forwarding economic growth, the importance of talent availability to drive economic development, and what HR can do to build programs for talent development.
