Talent Attraction

The vision of the Talent Attraction Committee is to develop a bold platform to identify and attract new tech and tech-adjacent talent. The initiatives will provide a path for the near-term and long-term positioning of Nebraska as a place for pioneering talent and the place to build new opportunities.

Attraction and retention of talent is paramount to addressing our workforce issue in Nebraska. It is imperative that everyone feels welcome, regardless of their background or beliefs will help ensure our success. This committee is focused on the recruitment of diverse talent from other markets; How to connect Boomerangs with opportunities in the State and how to attract more 18-34-year olds.

Employees demand fair and comparable compensation. However, more and more employees look beyond a paycheck when deciding where to spend their time and energy. Company culture reigns supreme when attracting and retaining workers.

Since 50% of all job creation comes from startup activity, Startups/Builders are a core group that should be targeted for the long-term effectiveness in impacting our talent deficiencies in the state.
