Have a new employee relocating to ICR? Help them find friends and engage with their new home by connecting them with a Wingman, a community champion eager to welcome new neighbors to town. Send your newcomer this link to apply for a Wingman. Once they have applied for the program, their new Wingman will reach out to schedule at least one in-person meeting, provide two invitations to networking events, and three connections to other people in their network.
There are two ways to use ICR Wingman:
Bringing a candidate to ICR for an interview? Consider using Wingman Concierge to provide a custom community introduction for your candidate and/or their family. The program includes a customized flight plan designed to meet your candidate’s needs. Itineraries can include community or region-wide tours, coffee meet-ups, a friendly face to share lunch, or another experience ideal for your candidate. Wingman Concierge is available to employers who invest $5,000+ annually with the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance or the Iowa City Area Development Group (ICAD). To request a Wingman Concierge, please fill out the form below with any details you can share. We will be in touch to plan the perfect flight!
