Will Stewart, executive director of Stay Work Play NH, will be the keynote speaker for the Northfield Economic Development Corporation annual meeting on November 14th.
Stewart’s presentation, “To Stay or To Go: A Look at Why Young People are Leaving NH, Why They’re Staying, and Why it Matters,” will focus on data from a recent survey of more than 400 young people, ages 20-40.
“In a series of recent interviews recently conducted by NEDC, the Town of Northfield and the University of NH, local business owners identified the workforce shortages as major problem for small and large businesses alike. Stay Work Play has worked to identify why many young workers are leaving the state and what can be done to entice those still in the state to stay and those who have left to come back. Any comprehensive development strategy has to address the issue.”
