Young Professionals Attraction & Retention

One of the primary focus areas of the Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development (ED) office is workforce development. Part of that workforce discussion centers around the attraction and retention of young professionals in the Findlay-Hancock County community. As such, the ED Advisory Board concluded that in order to understand what is needed to keep young professionals in the community, they needed to ask the young professionals.

The A.F.T.E.R. Hours Task Force was launched with a vision of “Attracting Future, Talent, Entertainment, and Resources” to the Findlay-Hancock community. Individuals met over the course of a year to collectively identify and work towards the opportunities and resources desired by young professionals in an attempt to boost employee retention rates. The task force is excited to share their ideas with our employers, local businesses, and other economic stakeholders who share an interest in the potential of Findlay-Hancock County.

Residential Growth

The Findlay community continues to grow and expand in terms of population and quality of life. One of the primary ways in which local economies can grow is to encourage and incentivize people to live where they work. As mentioned above, over half of Hancock County’s employees current live outside of our community. One way to accomplish our goal of attracting them to live here is through a variety of housing products including affordable, market-rate, and mixed-income housing, as well as single, senior, and multi-family developments.
