Nicor Gas has embarked on a campaign to promote doing business in Illinois. Kankakee County was selected as an initial focus community. Tim Nugent, President / CEO of the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County and Ladonna Russell, Executive Director of the Grundy Livingston Kankakee Workforce Board are featured here.
The Economic Alliance works diligently to report in a timely manner on things like local business expansion, new business development, new and enhanced development incentives, economic news and other items of interest to our community investors and investor prospects.
Businesses that think through the needs of their customers in an ever-changing and adapting world will ultimately outlast their competition by offering solutions that work well both today, post-pandemic and in the next big world change, whatever it may be.
Change is the universe’s default. Progress, at its best, is positive change. As we together weather the unprecedented global reverberations presented by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, subsequent shelter-in-place precautions, and tremendous personal and business losses, it is tempting to abandon the notion of progress. But that would be a tragic mistake.
Business strategy can be a very large and overwhelming topic for small businesses. Many believe their pursuit of survival overwrites the need to consider long-term strategy. While this may have been true in the past, it can no longer be true in the ever-changing economic landscape that we are witnessing today.
