Recruited talent doesn’t see all that West Michigan offers. They dismiss opportunities in Michigan because of its well-publicized economic challenges and are unaware of the vibrant lifestyle and career prospects in the region. For those that do recognize the gem that is West Michigan, they find the relocation process difficult because resources are scattered and incomplete.
In an environment where talent can move anywhere and find employment, employers in West Michigan face many obstacles when competing with other regions of the country. When they do find talent, those they have recruited have a difficult time finding their “fit.” Often, employers are also faced with assisting their new hire’s significant other in finding employment. If this is unsuccessful, the couple is less likely to stay.
