Partnership unveils videos to develop, attract and retain talent

(December 10, 2013) – Two new videos are highlighting the educational opportunities available at area colleges and universities and showcasing how Northeast Indiana is developing a workforce ready to meet employers’ needs. The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership unveiled the videos today.

The videos support the Your Story Made Here campaign. Your Story Made Here was launched in 2012 to aid in the Partnership’s Vision 2020 initiative, which aims to develop, attract and retain talent in Northeast Indiana.

 

Bright Futures

 

The first video, available at www.yourstorymadehere.com, shows area residents, and those considering moving to the region, a sample of post-secondary education options available in Northeast Indiana.

“With over a dozen colleges and universities to choose from, students don’t have to leave the region to take full advantage of unique opportunities that can prepare them for future success,” said John Sampson, president and CEO of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. “And attending school here can also give them the added advantage of connecting with local employers throughout their coursework.”

 

Your workforce is ready.

 

The second video, available at www.neindiana.com, is intended to show employers how efforts underway in the region are creating opportunities for their businesses to find the qualified workers they need to be productive and grow in Northeast Indiana.

“The collaboration between economic development and workforce development in Northeast Indiana is a differentiating characteristic for our region. Businesses looking at our region will recognize that Northeast Indiana is focused on fulfilling their talent needs, today and into the future,” said Sampson.

The videos were made with support from Indiana Tech, Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast, Manchester University and the University of Saint Francis.

Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
