Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
An influx of young talent can remake a community. Communities with solid talent recruitment are on an upward trajectory. But what makes young talent choose your community? On the Place Matters show this week, we'll discuss what makes a place appealing, and how you can successfully optimize talent recruitment and retention.
About “Place Matters”:
Listen to Place Matters every Thursday at 11:00 AM (EST) on 880AM in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and online at http://www.880thebiz.com. Podcasts are available on iTunes. The show is sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in Miami, FL and Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC.
Placemaking is the science of creating communities that are not only considered liveable, but also loveable. Dr. Loflin serves as lead project consultant and national content expert on the Knight Soul of the Community survey, which for the first time investigated what attaches people to their community and the impact on the city’s bottom line in 2008-2010 across 26 U.S. communities in partnership with Gallup. The groundbreaking findings of the project have captured national attention and inspired local action.
