Black bears make comeback in Bowie, Titus counties

TexAmericas Center may have new residents on the property.

In today's hyper-competitive world a community has to have a workforce strategy. In my opinion, and in no specific order, it should focus on:
- Retaining the residents you have
- Getting disenfranchised individuals to re-enter the workforce
- Having a Come Home to…or Boomerang PR Strategy
- Having a +1 degree PR strategy
- Retraining existing employees to take better jobs
- Developing new pipelines of talent for existing and future employers
- Attracting key talent positions that can’t be developed at the rate demanded locally
