New Initiative Touts Region’s Assets to Entice Young Professionals
LANSING, Mich. – The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) today announced a partnership with Lansing 5:01 to launch a new digital talent attraction and retention platform that will be the first of its kind for the region. The new web-based platform will act as a one-stop-shop to visually illustrate the amenities and assets of the Greater Lansing area to emerging young professionals and talent.
The platform will be a user-friendly resource for companies and organizations looking to draw and retain talent to “showcase the best of Lansing to Lansing’s future.” The website will host a wealth of information on the diverse lifestyle, career, entertainment, and recreational opportunities available throughout Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties.
“After many conversations with our region’s top employers on the existing hiring practices and lack of resources available to accurately showcase Lansing, the Lansing 5:01 team saw an opportunity to continue the pursuit of our mission – attracting and retaining emerging talent to the region – and fulfill a pressing need in our community by completely transforming www.Lansing501.com into an awe-inspiring landing page for the region. A digital tool that would be used by community partners, company recruiters and more,” said Lansing 5:01 Founder and Executive Director Chris Sell.
