The Door County Economic Development Corporation knows the challenges it faces when it comes to developing a workforce, but believes retention might be the key to attraction. Through programs like NextGen and the Door County Business and Education Partnership, the DCEDC hopes to keep young people local or get them to come home after their post-secondary journey ends. DCEDC Executive Director Caleb Frostman says being able to improve the product while trying to sell prospective employers and employees on Door County is crucial.
Frostman credits NextGen Door County for keeping young professionals engaged and excited to live and work in the area.
