"Home for the Holidays" - A Workforce Development Initiative with Redwood Area Chamber

Great idea!  We're a Business that is HIRING!

How it works:

Business Commitment:

Facilitate Tours and (optional) Interviews on Monday, December 27 and Tuesday, December 28. Also provide ONE MAIN Point of Contact (email address) TO THE CHAMBER.  That CONTACT will be the main point of contact between the individual that plans to be “Home for the Holidays in the Redwood Area” and the business.  That email contact is who the Chamber will forward the lead to. Cost for Chamber Members:  $50.  Funds will be used for paid advertising for the initiative. 

Chamber Commitment:

Chamber will market this initiative.  Social Media marketing, including the new Digital Chamber Ambassador program, and other digital advertising will be utilized. Chamber will forward leads to designated Contact Person at participating businesses. The Chamber will also be offering community tours on Monday, December 27 and Tuesday, December 28 that can be a nice compliment to your facility tour.

Interested in becoming a Digital Chamber Ambassador for the Redwood Area Chamber?

Do you love the Redwood Area?  We are looking for Digital Chamber Ambassadors that want to help us spread the word about the great opportunities that exist in the Redwood Area.  

What’s in it for you?  No dress codes or uniforms, no boring HR meetings, and ‘it’s always bring your pet to work’ day… plus the great feeling that you’re giving back to a community you love!   Also - the new title “Redwood Area Digital Chamber Ambassador”... hey, it’ll make for good conversation at the holiday dinner table.  No, seriously, we’re going to refer to you as a “Redwood Area Digital Chamber Ambassador” on our website, and we will also be featuring our Digital Chamber Ambassadors and our Chamber Ambassadors in a social media campaign in early 2022.  There will be other incentives as we expand the program, including special designation and recognition on our online platforms and at special Chamber events.  So - here’s the commitment:  Sharing our social media posts  - up to 15 events or promotions per calendar year.  You pick your favorite social platform where you prefer to share - Facebook or Instagram - wherever you think you’ll get the best results.  Redwood Area Digital Chamber Ambassadors have a term of 2 years, which can be renewed via writing at the end of the last year or terminated via writing at any time (by either party without cause.)  

What’s in it for us? We’ll have your “connected” help as we promote the Redwood Area as a great place to live, work, and play.  We’ve got some big plans for 2022, and we want to spread the good news.  Digital Chamber Ambassadors are a great addition to our current and awesome Redwood Area Chamber Ambassador program.  We think it’s a great idea, if we say so ourselves! 

Email the Chamber at [email protected] for more information!

Once you tell us you’re ‘IN’ - we’ll send you your first simple Digital Chamber Ambassador assignment:  Share our “Home for the Holidays” social media post on Facebook and/or Instagram AND TAG 5 FRIENDS that DON’T currently call the Redwood Area Home.  Remember, these tagged friends should not currently live in the Redwood Area.  If at least 2 of those people share our post - that’s a bonus!  1 entry into drawing for $25 in Redwood Chamber Bucks for tagging 5 friends, and another entry for every share of your post, PLUS future incentives for Redwood Area Digital Chamber Ambassadors!!
