Talent Attraction Committee

Committee Strategies:


1. Places to Be: Enhance desirability of the South Bend - Elkhart region through increased community spaces, diverse housing choices, and connectivity among communities.

2. Telling our Story: Develop a comprehensive internal and external communications strategy based on “One Degree of Separation" from social, physical and professional opportunities.

3. People to Know: Define, organize, and promote engagement initiatives to attract and retain talent at all levels.
