Top employers in their region and as the conversation around talent became more prevalent within our reach and intercity needed to step up an attraction and retention of great people and telling her community. Ease. Lovely lady is Rick to avert our employers are involved at senator. The spirit of competition are all competing for talent now we are at more powerful we worked together so. Teen Casey was treated that and has a collective of more than 800 recruiters in the Kansas City Marquette were all competing for talent. I know that they need to work together to create solutions so that Kansas City as a whole can win. Who that's how. We are yes the user friendly than you have to now. And what do you guys what it would he utilize it a case CDC team Casey with this program I mean how does that help you reach your goals. How to ski CDC LP law. I actually occurring in and we definitely CKE TPT instantly see as an extension of our recruiting process. Remember when a reason for decline in its location and we. Every happy and we're fighting since people have that's. Rock to the West Coast. I'm especially from attack perspective and so. You know starting in the early loner sitting talent to Kansas City.

An entire group is after engineers monitored Kansas City and they just really help us. So canes and song you know the lifestyle of living in Kansas City and we are separate offers. And then Darian and Mikey he. And during the summer. Angela Oilers and we the emails about all the cool things going on in Kansas City I personally learned from dean who every week. You about what's going on in the city and so is just a great ties to we have. Albert Shannon for he went and turned about a hundred and or a year from outside the Kansas City area so where were well over 50% effort for 2% so we're working hard Q. Not only seldom long term and to the streets and so we just. It's amazing race cars or anything and everything that we need to hated to Kansas that you mentioned mighty Casey what does that again just. Sorry my Casey is our regional intern program. And so the companies in Kansas and he recruit their interns. And they applaud and semi Casey we essentially keep a social calendar and get them on day and they meet other young professionals in Kansas City while they're spending ninety days and the market over the summer they get to hear about all of the Austin's stuff happening in Kansas City from. Asked places to Bryant stack Hackett pines to slam poetry anything and everything. Kansas City and we planned event at the beginning of the summer so that interns at all the different companies can get to know each other and make friends. The whole point is that they're not sitting home watching Netflix on a Friday night at their meeting other young people. Calling the mother Kansas City getting I'm Dan and saying yes the job offers in the summer. And Sasha. Talked to some of you guys in value in Iraq and why you're excited about it there of the stuff existed when I was during his tipped it but I mean really truthfully you. You didn't have these networks sir you weren't able you didn't know people I mean maybe meets all of them are from whatever at a at a sporting event from. Wherever but you weren't plugged into all these different companies. All at once again I think there aesthetic perfectly when she's at extension. That's exactly what Casey for a the last hour. You share in the thinking about in the city. We are candidates without having us invent the term case CDC has has them. And and and it really well I should and and in your cards today that in my case Ian partnering with and then swim and some of the really cords we mean this past week. I am posted what we call grow teaching Casey so it's a partnership of the luckiest EDT and and he can see each chamber young professional sport content TCU we're. CDC. Are invited to attend this penal Ian to simply young professionals penal. Aaron. Young professionals that are answering questions addicts. The interns so them.

Iron and of course have to continue its campaign that helped us that they. You hear appears in the head. Yeah probably get Hamas or her or fifteen an intern and to participate 150 every summer so my best and not and that alone. And the last four years with the Nike C program we've reached thirteen thousand interns and selling them on Kansas City and helping them find their sense of community. That's amazing if they I was wondering organizational and you organize all of these interns rose to her company's. Joke if you get groups with 240 interns and businesses mean. Yeah lot of businesses are a lot of companies I mean I'm assuming it's like an email you send out and Constant Contact her on. She male champion they get about 35%. Opener if you're having today and maybe 35% 50% of the intern show up. We are really an amazing team Aggies CDC that works there. Graphic design marketing Miette magic and Angelo or is leading up program for us. For Mikey see and we go out tell all of the intern orientation dias at all the companies out.

And slide back night and into grand takeovers and we try to engage in and have and turns from other companies participate throughout the summer. They are clicking through an opening emea. If this sounds. Fairly unique I mean no competition in recruitment it's tough but. You know we've you guys have had internships and cereal on the journey and maybe potentially another city. I don't remember an organization from I interned in DC and our members. Whenever the DC area development council called doing any kind of in turn two comments I mean you what you can see he's doing is is pretty cool and special. Absolutely eighteen Casey has been nationally recognized. I thought leader in talent attraction and destination marketing them so a lot of cities sell their communities right. Teams Casey TC need to approach and attitude be to be approached. Are not helping companies find interns or how to create an intern program. We leave that experts in her cream to do it recruiting men to redo the marketing rate and having them connect that the community. Centene Casey at the breath and out that it's doing an intern program has certainly. One of the largest in the country and one of the pioneers and and lots that we and spark.

A period of be a fun throw in Korea since you guys are working recruiting humor yeah. Turns memories of our internships and in my life gotten into an Indian wedding weekend. That's not really important. So what they'll have the best advice from me recapture previous entries for a lot of advice to UT can our current interns and some of the best advice I have heard. Is it's academy. In. Your all your internship to make mistakes it's almost expect it and so when that's happening it's more so how are acting to dozens of excellent and Ian the actual ache so. That I hope this really reassuring her that this entrants that are going through this summer and have their first they can pass or. And you know stumbled threesome themed it's okay did you goes it's just more snow. Are you leaning on your resources to recover from. Been there is definitely. Has picking them you know until late in that interview. To talk to the team unions and talent. That's in and in an office questions. In real name and oh. Just getting getting ever you probably just you know. I entered an unpaid internship in Chicago your current oh my biggest piece of advice is always in networking. And always asked to do more because of what you put into that is what you get now me and that's what's on the minds he CDC. There you go look at that that's pretty cool like Stuart of yes yes everything and I think what. Yeah have agreed agreed internecine junior in the heavily another year college but they really liked the organization they come back for their senior year internship today leaving dozens. Please I guess and we help the company stay in touch with them. Survival. Packets are finals week in the hour hey you're getting ready to graduate nurse and issue of bag and that that's got to be tough for the interns maybe they go to college on the West Coast the East Coast. They come here for his city for their junior and in the next year at their collective experience there. They're pretty much committed intensive appointed to come back for the team and organist and a back with the turley casualties. That means to destroy them I'll ever the last. There eventually got them. I you can take it via tweet about. I love it I love. Really really cool what you guys are doing and we're gonna have one more segment left don't talk about trends in Kansas City and and ways that we can grow our market. And we're not listening broke the relationship aren't easy night. Hello and welcome back to the grill nation show on ninety Indians came easy connect with me on Twitter at seducing girl and that relationship I'm your host. Jason grow wanna think to Casey ABC hasn't been a great show today. Disco palm who's the managing director of seeing Casey at the Casey eighty cedar website is think BC dot com. Sasha mass Lincoln who was the college recruiter burns and McDonnell and Sarah slocum. Who is with Garmin she's the university relations recruiting team leader there we've been talking about the Mike TC program team Casey. All the great things you guys are doing with internships recruitment and whatnot. Kansas City as a whole you mentioned unemployment is is lowest it's ever been in the US very low in Kansas City as well. Talked to me about some of the challenges because. You know we have these two great companies here burns in math and Garmin. International national reputations. It's always a battle though because we're mid western city right like you said yeah and where were fighting to recruit talent every day for all these job opportunities that now seem to be growing. Amidst cleaner city. I mean when he went you know you're so in Kansas City I find that. People moved to cities like you know like California right. Los Angeles they don't have looked taxes right they have culture they have on different things in these people will live where opportunities are and where. It's cool write it someday it's always about low tax it's about I don't live in New York island EC that amended the politics that element whether. So how do we how do we recruit those people to move. The Kansas City that's kind of mail or ranking question. I had no it's not culture but. What what are you guys doing at Whittier Whittier tactics that you. Kerkorian. Race I think we have a tendency to talk about low cost of living document and right. That's great Kansas City stacked up nicely in that capacity. But it's all of the intangibles not I mean senator scene inclusion is something that our community has an opportunity to really stamp out until you. Especially as her now on the world stage of attracting talent from everywhere. And we're in the most mobile talent environment we've ever been. And then before so. You know right now one in five people in the US are contractor freelance workers and in the next ten years that number in the us will be up to 50%. I'm totally cool place for eighteen is really important and telling unity and a lifestyle because the technology. People can do their business anywhere in the world I mean so inclusion in and having the opportunity to highlight. How are there's a sense of community for everyone in Kansas City sometimes isn't that easy. Place to come into and understand the environment rate in the attic and no man's Atlantic City that you don't really know much about. And I've got a hot topic for us. I would in the community and I think we need to be thinking about me. Job access is another really hot topic you can only access 18% of our jobs in Kansas City through public transit. It's a problem because they're great talent locally that need to find how to access those opportunities are great companies. I miss YouTube your campuses aren't downtown are in we're millennial like to live but how do you how do you fight that. Mean what are your what are your tactics that because as an intern right OK some an intern gonna working Garmin didn't and I'm from. Boston mention you have an intern from Boston there. And they seal late I mean you see your selling them on everything in. Leon there's a lot of people are gonna live. The young talent or your island took on the look for companies like yours. Are very. Herb and write their very connected wanna like. Live work play mix she's like that's that's got to the code word of the millennial generation right. How do you how do you guys kind of work is that with KC DC you know all these great events. We definitely do and we have you know we have a custom web site through Casey do you see that highlights all the different. Areas that you can live in the city and intense it just based on my conversation they tend to be content. And the downtown river market privileges are really big areas that we tens of Ireland Neal Levine and. And and it's you know about a 22 minutes. You knew it's and he knows that they can they can market our men and work aren't really cool products that feel people's passions are fitness and out or be passionate about that still. How to somewhat of an urban I've been down. The trailers. Area so that's part of where this relationship turns into play as just hoping showcase all the different. Opportunities and in my files that they can in intensity so. Can also say that we have the best of all worlds right because. A lot of traffic you can you can you can.
