BATON ROUGE, La. (April 26, 2018) — The Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) today launched the Baton Rouge Toolkit, a place-based marketing resource for local companies to use in conjunction with their human resources strategies. The toolkit is available online at brac.org/brtoolkit. 

 

“Communities that can articulate their strengths in engaging and consistent ways are more competitive both for economic development projects and for talent,” said Adam Knapp, BRAC president and CEO. “We developed this toolkit so that our regional businesses can engage easily and quickly in putting Baton Rouge’s best foot forward.” 

 

The Baton Rouge Toolkit includes key messages, tips for recruiting candidates and acclimating new hires, and an article bank of positive national press. The Toolkit encourages local organizations to use place-based marketing to strengthen their recruitment efforts and elevate the region’s external image through consistent and concise messaging.
