DCEDC strengthens recruiting pitch

The Door County Economic Development Corporation is increasing its efforts to convince some of the millions of people visiting the peninsula every year to stay. In front of local business and government leaders on Monday, the DCEDC officially launched, a one-stop-shop for those looking for a new career, housing, and more in the area. Workforce Development Specialist Kelsey Fox says with the help of local companies, she feels they have developed a tool to help turn “micro-moments,” or times when people reflexively turn to a device to learn something, into leverage.

NEW Industries’ Karen Urban-Dickson is one of the many human resources professionals working to fill some of the more than 800 open positions in Door County. She is appreciative of the extra effort being put towards getting people to apply.

Fox says the area is currently suffering a population and workforce decline due to the county aging four times faster than the national average and young people leaving to pursue opportunities in other parts of the state.
