About Hello West Michigan
Business has become a more fierce and competitive environment than ever before due to the recent economic challenges. In order for businesses to be successful they must hire and retain the best talent possible, even if that means on a global basis. Due to the lack of opportunities, those people with the best talent are often faced with the option of relocation.
A major factor is the decision to relocate is the region and area of that company. Unfortunately West Michigan is often looked down upon because of the large amount of negative media exposure regarding our economy. People are unaware of the career opportunities and exciting lifestyles West Michigan has to offer.
In response, forward-thinking organizations throughout West Michigan launched Hello West Michigan (HWM) in 2010 to address these common challenges. HWM exists to:
• Promote West Michigan as a place where business thrives and people want to live and work
• Increase the rate of success member companies have in their efforts to recruit top talent
• Collaborate with organizations across the region to help new residents find their fit in West Michigan
Seeking the best for West Michigan, Hello West Michigan fosters cooperation throughout West Michigan to recruit and retain talent.
HWM is an employer-driven and non-profit membership organization, serving as an advocate for talent and provides downstream support to them, and their families, as they settle into their new lives in West Michigan.
