Looking for a little INSIGHT?

If you have been born and raised in Jefferson City or been here awhile, you know about some of the great things that make this community a place you want to stay. But what about those who are new to the community? Are they getting connected and finding an appreciation for the unique opportunities we have?

If you are an employer in the community, and like me, you have been trying to hire the top talent for your business, you probably know the challenge of attracting employees who will help grow your business. If you attract an individual from outside this area, there are many factors they have to consider when making a career change…family, spouse’s employment, cost of living, and the community’s quality of place, just to name a few. Employers spend significant effort and resources attracting the right team members. So, it’s natural that our businesses want to keep those teammates for the long haul. That’s why the Chamber is launching a new program…Jeff City INSIGHT!

This program is a one-day adventure for new community members in our businesses to find ways to connect, get involved, and appreciate the opportunities our community offers. Our hope is that this program will be a great value to our members who can, for a low cost, send their new team members and make them residents for life!

I am a transplant to this community. Those of you who know me know my wife is a native of Jefferson City and being near her family was a primary consideration of our move. It was involvement in Chamber programs, like Leadership Jefferson City, that helped me get involved and be passionate about our town. Now, Jeff City INSIGHT will help others to get engaged in a short, targeted program to help our new residents know this is the place they want to stay! If you haven’t yet signed up or passed this news along to others who are new to the area, there is still time – the first INSIGHT day is October 23rd!
