Attracting Remote Workers with Incentive Programs

When:  Sep 22, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM (ET)

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it appears that remote work is here to stay: according to a December 2020 report from Upwork, 26.7 percent of the workforce will be fully remote through 2021. Furthermore, another Upwork study reports that 14 to 23 million Americans are looking to move in 2021. These statistics suggest that local governments have an unprecedented opportunity to expand their tax base and bolster economic development by attracting these "digital nomads."

In this webinar, you'll join presenters from three different jurisdictions as they discuss the incentive programs they use to encourage individual teleworkers, small startups, and entrepreneurs to relocate to their communities. You will learn:

  • The steps your jurisdiction should take to begin developing your own incentive program
  • Which incentives are the most successful at attracting remote workers
  • How partnerships with nonprofits and other entities can help fund these programs
  • Marketing tips for getting the word out
