Talent Attraction & Retention

Success depends on talent. One of the MetroHartford Alliance’s top priorities is recruiting and retaining talented individuals of all ages to contribute to the Hartford Region.

We actively engage local college students in Hartford and Springfield, Mass., to increase the number of bright college graduates and young professionals who will remain in the Region.

Hartford Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs (HYPE)

Young professionals and entrepreneurs are the cornerstones of the Region’s future. HYPE attracts members in their 20s and 30s and engages them in community life while expanding their professional and social opportunities.

Hartford-Springfield Economic Partnership

The Partnership is a collaboration of human resource professionals, business and economic development leaders, and college career counselors that surveys college students to determine the number of graduates planning to stay in New England’s Knowledge Corridor after graduation and their reasons for doing so.
