REDI and INL were recognized with a Bronze Award for the region’s promotional video, “Living Life Now. Working for Tomorrow. Eastern Idaho.” The video was developed by REDI as part of its larger regional talent attraction campaign. REDI and INL partnered with other local technology industries on the video to attract employees and businesses to Eastern Idaho. The award was given in the 25,000 to 200,000 population category.

According to Stephanie Cook, INL economic and workforce development program manager, “Talent pipeline is such an important element of economic development today. The video is a novel approach of Eastern Idaho partnering together to solve the challenge. We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with industry, REDI, Gallatin Public Affairs and Harris Publishing to share the story of the amazing career opportunities and quality of life in eastern Idaho.”
