How do businesses attract and retain the workforce they need in an era of record-low unemployment rates? Join businesses in Northwest Colorado’s mountain and resort communities to learn best and promising practices in the field of talent attraction and retention, hear area economic projections, and network with businesses from communities with similar economic drivers.
