Regional Economic Development Report guides Centergy mission, strategy
Centergy is one of seven designated economic development regions in the state of Wisconsin. Two more are under formation, which will allow the entire state of Wisconsin to be attached to regional strategies.
It is important to note that in order for any regional entity to be successful in growing their respective communities, we must leverage the work and talent of local economic development, workforce, and government professionals.
Centergy's mission is to stimulate measurable economic development in Central Wisconsin by aligning resources, encouraging cooperation among all sectors of our regional economy, and promoting the value of doing business here. So how do we measure the results? While Centergy cannot take credit for job creation, we do work on business's behalf to promote the region for retention, expansion, and recruitment of business enterprise and talent; develop the business culture, foster business development ideas and link resources. With the newly created Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation that replaced the Wisconsin Department of Commerce, a report was compiled by the Department of Workforce Development Office of Economic Advisors on each region. This report covers our geographical area of Adams, Marathon, Portage, and Wood Counties, and portions of Lincoln County. Among other tools, this information will be used to benchmark business and workforce activity. Please click here for the report.
Please contact the Centergy office should you wish for more information or if you would like to volunteer in any aspect of our operation.
