Our guest speaker this month is Chrystal Neal, Senior Vice President of Strategy & Brand, The Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Her topic is “Recruiting Millennial Talent by Promoting our Creativity.” Our current Richmond area workforce will continue to retire and our area will be competing for the young people required to meet our workforce needs. Richmond needs to be able to attract the best and brightest young people to want to live here so that our current companies will stay, and additional companies will be attracted to come to Richmond, so that we generate economic prosperity for years to come. Millennials typically look at the locale first, before a particular job, so promoting the Richmond area across the United States and the globe is critical. Chrystal will describe the Chamber’s efforts to recruit and retain millennial talent. Linda Warren saw Chrystal give a similar presentation to another group and recommended it for one of our meetings.
