Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) hosted a dozen business owners and company representatives this afternoon in Stanley, WI at Martino’s Restaurant. Attendees discussed the latest 2019 compensation trends for assisting them in their 2020 forecast and preparation for employee recruitment, retention and budgeting. This was the second series organized by CCEDC as part of their Business, Expansion and Retention Program (BEAR). A primary purpose of the BEAR lunch and learn series is to assist existing businesses by providing them with meaningful information to better compete in the new market place. CCEDC was thankful to work with the Harding Group to discuss this critical topic this afternoon and reach out with businesses in the Stanley area.

CCEDC would like to thank our sponsors that helped with this event that included Forward Bank, Martino’s Restaurant and Stanley Area Chamber of Commerce!
