Talent Retention Community Development

Columbus, GA is a world-class municipality. We are nestled in the beautiful natural environment of the Chattahoochee Valley. We have a wide range of educational options for our children. We have a thriving economy. We’ve got big city dreams to match our small town charm.

We know it.

So, our job here at the Chamber of Commerce is make sure everyone else knows it, too. Our focus on talent retention and community development is one of the most important, forward-thinking projects we have taken on. Over the years, Columbus has continually produced great minds, skilled workers, and talented artists who have gone on to accomplish great things. It is our duty to incentivize our best and brightest to buy into Columbus, to stay here and put their shoulder to the wheel of progress.

The Young Professionals Program is an example of the Chamber being pro-active in this area. Recruiting and retaining young professionals in the region will be a key in our continued growth and development. Already over 200 people and nearly 100 companies are actively participated in a myriad of activities designed to focus on talent retention and recruitment. We will become a national model of choice for Young Professionals.
