INVESTING IN WEST MICHIGAN'S ECONOMIC FUTURE
This year The Right Place held three Investor Breakfasts, attracting hundreds of attendees to discuss current and pressing topics affecting the West Michigan economy.
INCLUSIVE TALENT ATTRACTION AND RETENTION STRATEGIES
Talent remains a key concern on the minds of West Michigan employers. The Right Place brought Dr. Michelle Loyd-Paige of Calvin College to speak about how companies can create more effective and inclusive talent retention strategies. She also addressed common pitfalls made by businesses attempting to embrace a more inclusive culture.
As our industries become more connected, how can companies address cybersecurity and protect critical data from hackers? The Right Place convened a panel of experts to discuss this challenge and more. The panelists provided concrete strategies and solutions for companies to mitigate their exposure to cybersecurity risks, including business contracts and agreements, blockchain solutions, and emerging technologies.
TRANSPORTATION AND MOBILITY
Mobility and autonomous technologies are rapidly changing the face of Michigan’s automotive industry. To learn more about what this means for West Michigan, The Right Place brought in Kirk Steudle, Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation, to talk about the future of transportation.
