Will Your Next EDO Performance Assessment Include Compelling Data?

Doing a proper performance assessment for an economic development officer can be tricky. Economic development is a job with often intangible benefits to the community. For example, attending Chamber meetings may not have any immediate benefits or impact on a community or region. But anyone who has been to such meetings knows that the real importance is in the networking opportunities that they bring to EDOs and in the engagement EDOs get to have with community members. How does an EDO quantify the value of networking, impressions, and engagement on a community to Council? 

But with accurate, localized economic development data that an economic development officer can access fast, EDOs can show the impact of their work in the community to Council easily.
