Governor Ricketts, State Leaders Debut Talent Recruitment Website

LINCOLN, Neb. – The following is from the city of Kearney:

“During the Governor’s Summit on Economic Development, Governor Pete Ricketts unveiled a new website (www.thegoodlifeiscalling.com) to recruit talent to Nebraska.  Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) Director Dave Rippe and Nebraska Department of Labor (DOL) Commissioner John Albin joined the Governor to debut the website. Its purpose is to inspire people to choose Nebraska as a place to live, work, and raise a family.

“Our state has a strong economy with low unemployment, steady wage growth, and tens of thousands of terrific job opportunities available in any given month,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “To keep up that growth, it’s important that we attract, retain, and develop a highly skilled workforce. This website will help show the world what Nebraskans already understand: that the Cornhusker State is the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family.”

DED and DOL jointly developed www.thegoodlifeiscalling.com. The website is packed full of information and resources—from job and career links to community info—for anyone looking to learn more about Nebraska’s opportunities and quality of life. The Good Life Is Calling slogan and website are part of the State’s ongoing effort to attract new residents and workforce talent.

Input from community leaders and economic developers across the state was incorporated into the site’s development. An array of unique features make it both a useful tool for attracting potential residents and a way for Nebraskans to promote the state to family, friends, and clients.

State agencies envision www.thegoodlifeiscalling.com as the first stop for individuals and families looking to live and work in Nebraska. They intend for current residents to visit the site and use its features, too.”
