PREPARED TO QUANTIFY YOUR WORKFORCE?
In my conversations with site selection consultants and corporate real estate representatives, they consistently share their frustrations regarding communities that are not prepared to engage in the site selection process. In many cases, these communities have assets that are attractive to companies but the communities aren’t in a position to quantify these deliverables. More often than not, these communities are eliminated from consideration and may not ever know that they were.
GET THIS WHITE PAPER TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREPARE YOUR COMMUNITY.
