Business Retention Program
The Business Retention Program was created as a way of establishing good relationships and communication with Concord companies, in order to facilitate their retention and expansion within the City of Concord. The City of Concord is committed to its existing companies and believes strongly that these businesses are the community's biggest asset.
Economic Development Staff will arrange a Business Retention Visit with companies that are expanding in the community, new to Concord, experiencing challenging issues that affect the success of the business, and at the request of the business owner or manager.
These visits provide companies with a contact within the City to address issues or needs. Business Retention Visits also provide the City with greater insight and understanding of companies and their key decision makers, and increases communication and cooperation between the City and the business community.
Depending on the issue being faced by the company, Economic Development Staff may bring with them additional city, county or state staff, as well as other local partners in order to address the business' needs.
After the Business Retention Visit, Economic Development Staff will provide follow up to any issues or questions that arise during the meeting. Economic Development Staff will remain in contact with the business as appropriate, providing assistance when needed.
