SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Springfield Chamber of Commerce's Talent Attraction Initiative, which is aimed at helping to bring talented workers to the city, has its own place on the web.

LiveinSpringfieldMO.com is a website designed to introduce, and persuade, prospective residents mulling a move to the Ozarks.

"We all know this is a great place to live and work but somebody who is not familiar with Springfield may not necessarily know that. So this is a great introduction for them," Ryan Mooney, the Chamber's Senior Vice President of Economic Development, said.

Mooney said the website is a tool that will aid in the hiring process at businesses across Springfield. He said the website could be good for anyone, but it's true intent is to help existing companies, especially large industry giants with local headquarters like Bass Pro, Mercy, Cox and others, to market the city to key professionals.

"This isn't something that's all that common and we thought this is a great opportunity to help our existing companies as they try to grow and expand," Mooney said. "We're really focused on some high-demand fields like IT, engineering, healthcare, especially physicians, and just professional services in general."

The site lists several distinctions, but above all, Mooney said the Chamber's research proves that Springfield has what people are looking for.

"A safe community, they're looking for somewhere that's easy to get around. They're looking for low-cost housing options, they want to be part of a community that has a vibrant community and they want to know that there's access to quality healthcare."

"I've seen a lot, but I really like it in Springfield," Schwank said.

Mooney said the website is the first of many projects being worked on for the Talent Attraction Initiative.
