In 2016, BLAEDC established the Key Recruitment Program, a fee-for-service and membership program designed to help businesses in the Crow Wing County area find top-notch candidates to fill key professional positions in the workforce. This essential program was funded in part by BLAEDC, four founding members: Syvantis Technologies, Ascensus, GrowthZone, and Consolidated Telecommunications Company and through a Blandin Foundation grant. Several professionals and their families have moved to the Brainerd Lakes Area to accept highly compensated positions with local companies.
As this program grows, more companies in the Brainerd Lakes Area will benefit from the opportunity to employ highly-qualified professionals interested in locating in our special northern oasis. Our goal, connecting talented professionals with local businesses, will result in successful businesses growing our communities.
