It's time to boost your community's ability to compete with other communities that are welcoming firms back ashore.
American companies are reshoring to the United States, after decades of sending jobs overseas. In 2014 alone, over 60,000 jobs were reshored to the U.S. This trend is expected to continue, as a 2015 survey from the Boston Consulting Group found that 17 percent of firms were already actively reshoring, and an additional 7 percent of firms plan to move production to the United States within the next two years. Get in on the activity. As more companies decide to reshore, communities throughout the U.S. stand to benefit from the jobs that are returning.
Communities are competing to attract these reshoring firms, and many have found that financial and non-financial incentives are tools that can provide a competitive edge. Examples of such incentives include assisting reshoring companies with developing infrastructure, creating utility connections, identifying workers and suppliers, and training workers. This webinar will present best practice strategies for crafting competitive incentives packages, with a specific focus on the most common needs of companies that are reshoring.
Participants in this web seminar will learn:
• The most effective financial and non-financial incentives for attracting reshoring companies.
• Strategies on how to structure a competitive incentives package.
• Best practice examples of incentives packages that were successful used to attract reshoring companies.
