Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation: With 3,000 Available Careers Sheboygan County Upgrades SomeplaceBetter.org
Sheboygan, Wis. – The Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation released an updated SomeplaceBetter.org . Sheboygan County is the only area with comprehensive workforce relocation materials thanks to a partnership between the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) and Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce under the Someplace Better brand.
Sheboygan County has ~3,000 jobs available in nearly every field, education level and experience expectations. Growing Sheboygan County firms such as Johnsonville continue to have available opportunities for both professional and entry-level careers. “Johnsonville currently has 55 open positions including supply chain, maintenance, and manufacturing with a starting wage of $17.00 per hour with benefits.” Stated, Kristen Hiske, Johnsonville’s Workforce Outreach Coordinator.
“The area has many available middle class, family sustaining careers,” stated Gary Dulmes SCEDC Chair. “Sheboygan County also has incredible parks and world-class amenities. The SCEDC feels it is critical to tell our area’s story to attract top tier talent who are looking for a better place to live.”
The innovative website, www.SomeplaceBetter.org, is already visited by over 2,200 people per month performing over 900 job searches on its job board. The website also hosts a community calendar by coalescing all Sheboygan County area chamber calendars into one, hosts library of community and testimonial videos, and an ongoing list of area accolades such as Sheboygan being named the 2 nd most livable City by AARP.
One person who Someplace Better helped to recruit is Justin Selle, President and CEO of St. Nicholas Hospital. “My wife and I were sent a link to Some Place Better by HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital when I was notified about an opportunity within the organization,” stated Selle. “We watched the videos about the area on our TV and were amazed with what the area had to offer. We knew the opportunity was with a good organization and HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital was servicing a great community.” Justin moved to Sheboygan from Missouri this past July.
