Several groups have partnered to create a new talent retention strategy for the Northland.

According to the Arrowhead Partnership for Economic Expansion, the website Northforce.org offers microsites focusing on Duluth, Superior, and the Iron Range and an employer-employee "matchmaking" function for current and prospective residents of the region.  The website is a collaborative initiative of APEX, The Northspan Group, IRRRB, the cities of Duluth and Superior.

The goal of Northforce is to attract, manage, place, enrich and retain the talent community for northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.

The group has five core talent strategy objectives:

1. Attracting Talent: We educate prospective talent about the real reasons to come or stay.

2. Managing Talent: We foster and maintain a line of communication between communities, employers, and prospective talent that is dynamic and constructive.

3. Placing Talent: We help talent find employers, and employers find talent.

4. Enriching Talent: We provide opportunities for talent to grow, advance and change the face of the region.

5. Retaining Talent: We create an environment in which talent thrives and whose contributions are reciprocated in every way possible.
