When candidates accept a new position, they’re taking on more than a job. They’re assimilating into a brand new work environment and sometimes even switching gears and building their home in a brand new city.

TeamKC seeks to help make this transition as easy as possible. At the Make it MyKC relocation event, our team gathered a collective of “KC experts” to answer the questions of individuals wanting to learn more about life in the Kansas City region.

In a virtual setting, attendees toured nine breakout rooms, where a total of 17 KC experts shared their insights on the topics of housing, nightlife, outdoors, family fun, sports, arts and cuisine.

Nearly 100 attendees participated, representing the following companies:

  • Boehringer Ingelheim
  • Children’s Mercy Hospital
  • Dairy Farmers of America
  • Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City
  • Garmin
  • Hallmark
  • Honeywell FM&T
  • McCownGordon Construction
  • SelectQuote
  • USDA

Individuals and families who participated left with more knowledge about their new home and contact information for experts in case more questions came up post-event.

Overall, TeamKC received positive feedback on the event from participants and volunteers:

  • “I cannot think of a better way to welcome both those recently moved here, and those soon coming to the metro KC area … If there is a chance to do this again, please let us know. Think about all the time you saved the participants...because it is REALLY HARD to be the new person in a new town, on your own. We have all been there. This type of forum gives participants a bit of knowledge, and a connection to others.” - Children's Mercy Hospital, spouse participant
  • "Just want you to know that this virtual event was actually really enjoyable. They did a great job of making it interactive and fun." - DFA, employee
Lastly, a BIG thank you to our talent acquisition partners and KC experts for making the event a success!
