Hamilton County Designated A 21st Century Talent Region
On December 6, Hamilton County was designated as Indiana's fourth 21st Century Talent Region. The 21st Century Talent Region initiative encourages a wide-ranging group of organizations, including local governments, business groups, educational institutions, and nonprofits to create an environment to attract new jobs, raise household income, and grow the population.
This Talent Region will be led by the Hamilton County Economic Development Corporation. One major aspect of Hamilton county’s efforts is to focus on education at all levels. Their success will be measured by the number of internships and apprenticeships, on-time graduation rates, and a review on how easy it is for students to earn work credentials.
