Talent Attraction

The Greater Racine County initiative showcases why Racine County is a great place to live and work by sharing the unique stories of our communities and promoting our companies, job opportunities, and local amenities. Its primary goal is to attract prospective talent and their families. 

Greater Racine County serves as a resource to those relocating to Racine County and to local companies recruiting talent to our community.

Digital Recruitment Campaign

Racine County’s talent needs are not unique, so how can RCEDC make a positive difference for local employers? By taking advantage of other successful talent recruitment initiatives, including the multi-million-dollar campaign funded by Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), launched in 2018. The WEDC campaign was built on feedback from Midwestern millennials surveyed on their willingness to relocate to Wisconsin for a better work/life balance. Following the launch of the Greater Racine County website (www.GreaterRacineCounty.com), which was created and funded by RCEDC, Real Racine and Racine County, a digital campaign was developed to reach specific talent for industry categories such as advanced manufacturing, healthcare and STEM.

RCEDC and Real Racine are currently launching the next step to capture the captive, tourist audience visiting Racine County and deliver information of employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.
