Greater Des Moines Partnership

The Greater Des Moines Partnership, a major Midwest partnership of economic and community development organizations, utilized the Institute services for the creation of the Central Iowa Human Capital Survey. The survey was designed to assess embeddedness of local talent in the community and in the workplace. The survey was deployed to over 4,700 businesses and their employees. The data analysis and reporting delivered to the Partnership by the Institute in collaboration with The Ray Center at Drake University will provide direction to community leaders on additional efforts needed to improve the quality of life in Central Iowa.
