Due to a perfect storm of demographic and labor force conditions, “talent attraction” has become a common term, no longer used only by human resources professionals, but also by city, region and state leaders to refer to their efforts to grow and retain their working-age population.

But what’s the best way to market to talent to ultimately grow and retain a competitive workforce? Enter DCI’s “Talent Wars,” a comprehensive research study that seeks to provide insights that help places to better compete in the global battle for talent.  

Now in its eighth edition, the report tackles a few hot topics that go beyond our usual line of questioning, such as the priorities of self-identified “blue-collar” vs. “white-collar” talent, generational differences, factors that would encourage those not currently working to re-enter the workforce, the role of politics in relocation and sources that influence perceptions of safety.
