Live the Valley
Talent Attraction and Population Growth
Talent is the current economic development currency. For the last several years, Grow Cedar Valley has shifted our main focus to talent attraction & retention and population growth. This is being done by heightening community perceptions and reducing barriers. It became very important that communities highlight themselves as much as a hiring employer would promote their organization to a desirable candidate.
The Cedar Valley took a regional approach to market and promote the Cedar Valley through Live the Valley. By partnering regionally, Live the Valley packages many different opportunities for those looking to relocate; taking the best of what each community has to offer and sharing it, promoting the Cedar Valley through articles, videos and interactive tools.
