Let the good times roll 1

If your idea of a good time is to play some classic games while enjoying some great craft brews and good food, Manchester has some awesome options. At Dave and Buster’s in the Mall of New Hampshire, you can have plenty of gaming action, delicious food, cocktails and craft beer under one roof.

EXPERIENCES IN MANCHESTER MUST DO MUST DO

Manchester is not only New Hampshire’s largest city that is chock full of history, business economic development activity, shopping and fine dining. It is also really fun!

Here are 10 Must Do Experiences that Greater Manchester area and visitors should enjoy:

Marvel at NH’s largest LEGO display 3

Have you ever wondered what Manchester’s Millyard looked like circa 1900? Thanks to the Granite State’s largest LEGO display at the SEE Science Center, visitors can experience a unique view of Queen City history courtesy of the LEGO Millyard Project constructed with 3 million LEGO bricks. There are also 75 interactive exhibits on two floors to explore.

Discover Queen City history 4

As Manchester looks to the future, it never wants to lose sight of its glorious past as an Industrial Revolution powerhouse that utilized the full power of the Merrimack River and scores of hard-working city residents. Knowing where one has been is important as one moves on to new horizons. The Manchester Historic Association Millyard Museum takes visitors on a journey from Manchester’s earliest beginnings when Native Americans settled on the Amoskeag Falls to the employees of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company to today’s businesses and residents. Play ball! 2

Manchester is also home to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Bluejays who call Northeast Delta Dental Stadium home. The Fisher Cats provide terrific fun and corporate entertainment with great action around the diamond, spectacular fireworks shows, theme nights and many other special events.

Hit the slopes, but never leave town 5

Just imagine if you woke up in Manchester on a picture-perfect winter’s day following a new-fall snow and you wanted to get in some skiing, snowboarding or tubing, but didn’t feel like driving an hour or two north. No problem. The city-owned and -operated McIntyre Ski Area is your winter playground. So instead of driving two hours to and from a ski resort, you can spend that time enjoying the slopes right in your backyard instead.

Enjoy

Broadway and the best entertainment downtown

The performing arts — music, dance and theatre – remain an integral part of the Manchester experience thanks to four unique venues: The Majestic Theatre, the Palace Theatre, The Rex Theatre and the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) Arena. These venues host everything from musical productions, intimate concerts, comedy and the biggest stars including Manchester’s own Adam Sandler, the Boston Pops, Cirque du Soleil and Reba McEntire.

Let’s get physical 7

The Greater Manchester area has more than its share of gyms and fitness centers to stay in shape. It is also home to one of the largest indoor sports facilities in the state. NH Sportsplex in Bedford has a 130,000-square-foot playing surface, a 54,000-square-foot, arena-style full field, athletic training center and weight room, sports bar and grill, three boarded turf fields, sports courts which caters to roller hockey, deck hockey, ball hockey, basketball, volleyball, and pickleball, five batting cages, arcades and the Esports Lounge. When the days grow shorter and colder and the nights get longer, it’s always game on here.

Craft beer and wine lovers rejoice! 9

Art Walk awaits 8

For craft beer aficionados who want to spend more time enjoying the special brews in the city instead of trying to find all of the great breweries, the Brew Bus is literally the perfect vehicle to make this happen. Not only will you discover the breweries within the city limits, but you will also get to enjoy craft breweries throughout the greater Manchester area and beyond. If craft beer is not your thing and you lean more toward the fruits of the vineyard, the Greater Manchester area also has plenty of wine and cocktail bars to enjoy. One of them is the Vine 32 Wine + Graze Bar in Bedford. The Granite State’s first and only self-serve wine bar offers a rotating selection of 32 wines on tap and tapas menu. Also available for private events, Vine 32 is a casual space for coming together and toasting what matters.

Explore the city on foot or by bike

Manchester is not just a city on the move in terms of its vibrant nightlife, arts and culture and economic development, it is also a city that encourages its residents to physically move with more than 100 miles of rail trails and greenways that connect the Queen City with the rest of the Granite State. Since 2008, Manchester Moves has created and maintained this trail network for hikers, runners and bikers of all abilities to enjoy the outdoors and an active lifestyle.

Getting Here By Plane

Strategically situated in the heart of New England, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is located less than 50 miles north of Boston and less than an hour’s drive from the region’s most popular ski areas, scenic Seacoast beaches and peaceful lakefront lodging. The Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is widely considered the premier airport in northern New England and a convenient alternative airport serving the Greater Boston area. Easy access, competitive airfares, ample affordable parking, and a comprehensive schedule of nonstop and direct jet service make Manchester the airport of choice in New England. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is served by American Airlines, Southwest, Spirit Airlines and United.

To keep pace with the economic development activity happening in

the city, the airport is modernizing its customer experience.

Airport Director Ted Kitchens wants to make sure ManchesterBoston Regional Airport is the go-to option over Logan International Airport in Boston.

One of the key advantages that Manchester-Boston Regional Airport touts is it is super convenient compared to Logan, says Kitchens.

Kitchens also believes that Manchester is enjoying the same kind of “buzz” that cities like Austin, Texas, and Nashville enjoy. “Variety within proximity” is what Manchester has to offer, he adds.

The airport is also undergoing some modernization to make it even more customer friendly. For example, the airport is adding more electric vehicle charging sta-

tions and looking to partner with rental car companies that want to offer electric cars in their fleet.

“We’re investing in the guest experience,” he says. “Different customers want different things.”

Inside the terminal, Kitchens says the airport is providing self-serve food and drink offerings and plenty of charging stations for cellphones, laptops and tablets.

“It’s an exciting time at the airport and an exciting time in the city, and I certainly think the future looks very bright,” he says.

As if on cue, Autumn in Manchester, NH, delivered a picture-perfect day for a special Art Walk. The sunny and mild weather brought out scores of creative enthusiasts who wanted to view the more than 40 murals, sculptures and statues that adorn Manchester. They gathered at The Bookery Manchester to receive maps designed to guide their way as they explore different parts of the city at their own pace.

The first murals along the Art Walk were commissioned by downtown businesses to beautify Manchester. Other murals were the result of state grants and artist-in-residency programs. The art pieces include everything from artistic electrical boxes and painted murals to statues of the Mill Girl — a representation of thousands of 19th-century working

Art Walk Reveals Many of Manchester’s Hidden Treasures

women and industrial revolutionaries who broke with the past to earn their living — and Ralph Baer, the local man credited with inventing the first video game.

“Manchester is a destination filled with history and creative treasures,” says Liz Hitchcock, principal at Orbit Group. “We developed the MHT Art Walk to help local explorers and visitors discover our growing collection of art, landmarks and embellished cityscapes.”

One of the most well-known points of interest is adjacent to Bookery Manchester — Cat Alley, comprised of several murals depicting cats who provide various tidbits to onlookers. Jyl Dittbenner of Manchester is one of the artists who contributed her work to Cat Alley along with three large-scale murals around The Rex Theatre on Amherst Street: Night at

the Theatre, Primary Colors, and Seeds of Drama. She loves having her art displayed in a way where so many people can access it and enjoy it.

“Art builds up the character of your city and makes things look cared for and loved,” says Dittbenner. “It’s very exciting to have your art just be the backdrop for the city. It’s also fun when you’re making it to have people come by and see it and ask you questions.”

James Chase, an associate professor at the Institute of Art and Design at New England College, created the Stairs at Arms Park mural in 2022 at the request of Manchester Connects and Arts Build Community, both local grassroots initiatives, and the city’s Economic Development Office. It features shifting colors along the stairs, from yellow to blues,

pinks and reds, to give the otherwise drab stairway a pixelated look that draws the eye.

Around 50,000 vehicles drive past the stairway mural each day, which is helping people to discover the restaurants and museums in the Millyard. “It actually brings people into our city,” reflects Jodie Nazaka, director of the Manchester Economic Development Office.

Back in 2011, Liz Hitchcock — who also owns Bookery Manchester on Elm Street — was involved with Manchester Connects, with the goal of generating more foot traffic downtown. This would result in more area residents and visitors patronizing the many shops, restaurants, art galleries and attractions throughout the Millyard and along Elm Street, Hanover Street and elsewhere in the city.

modern sculpture that greets visitors near its entrance, along with two Frank Lloyd Wright houses that are open to guided tours.

Alan Chong, director and CEO at the Currier Museum of Art for six years, is pleased the Currier is part of the Art Walk project, and gives visitors the opportunity to meet the Currier’s artists in residence and learn more about their artwork and creative processes.

“There is art, but there is still so much mystery around where it all is, and no one is telling you about it or who created it,” says Hitchcock. “The Art Walk map is annually updated, and we want the community to share if there is something not reflected on the map.”

The map in question, crafted by Orbit Group’s Creative Director Dave Hady, is available at Bookery Manchester and also online. Patrons can also access the map via a QR code to scan on their smartphones.

While the large-scale building murals may be the most striking aspect of the Art Walk, Hitchcock points out it also includes many historic statues and sculptures in the city’s parks, including the World War II Memorial and Victory Park statue, General Casimir Pulaski and the Grieving Gold Star Mother.

Also a part of the Art Walk experience is the Currier Museum of Art’s large

“We co-create art with the community, which is one of our goals,” Chong says. When people come into contact with the brightly colored murals in the city or pieces of art at the Currier, Chong hopes it inspires creative thinking. “What does an artist think about? How do they create things? These things are very important for enlivening our way of thinking. Art makes you see other people. It calms you down. It opens people to new cultures and new ideas,” he said.

He believes that Manchester’s art revival also gives the city greater livability. “I hope that art brings people together. It really livens the culture of a place. It makes people more interesting and more creative, and it gives people a different perspective of the world. It creates a better environment for people to live.”

Generating more excitement about the city’s unique public collection is something principals at Orbit Group want to do more of in the future. Creating partnerships with Manchester institutions — like the Currier Museum of Art, the Palace Theatre and the Greater Manchester Chamber — works in harmony to provide an outlet for visitors to explore everything that the Queen City has to offer.

Modern Apartments

Transform Downtown Office Buildings and City into New Hub

When Jodie Nazaka sums up Manchester’s building boom, it’s a simple case of supply and demand. The demand for multiple apartments for young professionals and empty nesters is sky-rocketing, and the supply is steadily growing to meet that demand. Last fall, the number of new units stood at 1,900 with hundreds more on tap.

As the director of the Manchester Economic Development Office at City Hall, Jodie and her team have been busy on multiple fronts to help developers create new high-quality residential units throughout downtown as the city improves its overall livability. In just seven years, Manchester has undergone quite a makeover to become a place where more people want to live.

“It’s pretty remarkable,” says Nazaka, who is also a Manchester native.

She recalled that, in the not-toodistant past, Manchester’s downtown was virtually devoid of any boutiques, restaurants and storefronts. Thanks to the efforts of the city; arts and cultural events; entertainment venues like the Palace Theatre and the Rex Theatre; and the Greater Manchester Chamber, the city has literally flipped the switch and inspired a downtown renaissance.

In September, the U.S. Economic Development Administration awarded approximately $44 million in grants to the BioFabrication Cluster, led by the City of Manchester, to establish a biofabrication cluster in Southern New Hampshire. Nazaka says that serves as more confirmation the city is heading in the right direction. Officials with ARMI, the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute, estimate they will create more than 35,000 good-paying jobs when the biotech sector takes off.

The city’s Master Plan was updated to reflect this new direction that calls for providing more residential units to accommodate younger professional workers and empty nesters who want to live in a city that offers arts, culture, entertainment and convenient access to the whole of New England, New York City and Canada. The proximity of nearby

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is also a huge plus.

Project managers like Stefan Philbrook of estTeam, LLC, are converting scores of commercial spaces and unused office spaces into new residential units that include modern amenities and the convenience of walkability to everything Manchester has to offer.

“We are doing 35 units downtown,” says Philbrook. The RAXX-LeMay building, a former pool hall and bar on 1225 Elm St., had been vacant or under-rented for more than a decade. “Now it will be 35 apartments and 20 percent retail.”

Philbrook notes another project he is doing on 4 Elm St. will yield 27 studios that are an average of 400 to 450 square feet. Studios continue to be immensely popular with young professionals.

The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated a trend that was already happening where more workers were either going hybrid or remote.

The Brady Sullivan Plaza at 1000 Elm St. is a good example. At one time it was dominated by law firms and other businesses. Now, nine of the 20 floors are being converted into apartments with

retail shops at the base of the plaza.

In a prepared statement, Arthur Sullivan, the principal partner of Brady Sullivan Properties, says, “We are excited to be one of the driving forces behind the economic boom of downtown Manchester. We have seen a slight decline in the need for commercial space due to current events, and we are using this opportunity to capitalize on the ability to turn these spaces into market-rate luxury apartments. This process at the Brady Sullivan Plaza, as well as The Lofts at Jefferson Mill, gives us the ability to contribute to the city of Manchester.”

Sullivan continues: “The Plaza will add 155 units to one of the tallest buildings north of Boston. The units are unique, and will offer residents a plethora of opportunities being located at the center of Elm Street. Most recently, we added 38 units to The Lofts at Jefferson Mill on Commercial Street. In addition, this property didn’t have a true amenity space, and now the residents have access to a community room, fitness center, theater room, indoor putting green, game room and Wi-Fi lounge.”

chester Planning Board, and they are seeing applications and site plans calling for as many as 300 to 400 units in previously commercially zoned buildings throughout the downtown area.

In addition to the promise of future employment opportunities, a number of young professionals say that Manchester represents a much better bargain than living in Boston. “By moving to New Hampshire, they save a tremendous amount of money and they have a better quality of life,” says Philbrook.

As this trend continues, some residents are concerned the city will be dominated by too much residential and not enough commercial or parking. He believes this can be properly addressed with the right planning.

“Next to the Red Arrow Diner, there was a building that was a former New Hampshire Typing School. It was 100 percent commercial. The developer wanted it to be all residential. The Planning Board said some has to be commercial. The compromise was to make the first floor 75 percent commercial.”

In terms of how Manchester will look when all of these residential projects are completed, Philbrook believes the city will look pretty much the same from the outside. New construction projects will blend in with much of the existing cityscape and others are interior renovation projects of former commercial spaces.

The city will also see more parking garages to accommodate the demand in residential units. In addition to the housing boom, Philbrook asserts the city is making strides to redevelop the South Millyard that could lead to the creation of a more modern neighborhood with greater pedestrian access to the river.

The city received $25 million in RAISE Grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop the area in question near South Elm Street. The funding, along with a $5 million local match, will focus on a new roadway with a bridge and pedestrian and bike access over railroad tracks from South Commercial Street to Elm Street and then to Willow Street, a “peanut roundabout,” to improve bicycle and pedestrian access near the intersection of South Willow Street and Queen City Avenue, and a pedestrian bridge over Granite Street.

In some ways, Manchester is making up for lost time with all this economic development activity. “It’s a growth spurt that should have happened a long time ago in Manchester,” says Philbrook.

Ron and Gerry Dupont, a husbandand-wife team, are getting closer to completing the seven-story Red Oak building at 409 Elm St. across from Market Basket.

“We’re calling it revolutionary,” states Gerry Dupont.

Robotics furniture will also be featured in the studios. “You push a button and your bed goes into the ceiling and you have a living space,” she says. Additionally, the apartments will include all utilities and in-home Wi-Fi.

There will also be electric vehicle charging stations, a yoga studio and fitness center, as well as solar panels that will power common areas in the building.

When completed in the spring 2023, there will be 90 apartments on five floors. The first floor will host Red Oak’s newest

co-working office space and Red Oak’s new corporate office with 126 parking spaces. The units will range from under $2,000 to over $3,000 per month, he says.

The couple knows firsthand that the more people who choose to live downtown, the more the city will benefit.

For example, the building at 875 Elm St., the former Amoskeag Bank, hosts 91 families who bring a great deal of life and economic buying power to downtown. The same is true for the 41 residents who live in the Red Oak Opera Block apartments on 30 Hanover St. near the Palace Theatre and Rex Theatre. About 350,000 people go to events at both entertainment venues each year, which translates into a great economic benefit for downtown restaurants and businesses.

the street from the Palace Theatre will also be converted into 40 apartments soon. Red Oak has commissioned a mural to be painted on the side of the parking garage they own on Hanover Street.

To keep pace with the fever pitch economic development activity happening in the city, the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is also modernizing its customer experience.

As the city’s population and biotech job opportunities grow, Airport Director Ted Kitchens wants to make sure Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is ready to serve those new passengers and be their go-to option over Logan International Airport in Boston.

The airport’s goal to encourage reverse tourism is also paying off. Thanks to the flights provided by Spirit Airlines, Kitchens says more people are traveling to Manchester and all over New Hampshire from Florida to enjoy the city and the state.

Before the pandemic, the business traveler made up 40 to 50 percent of their business at the airport. “If we get them back, we will be well over where we want to be.”

One of the key advantages that Manchester-Boston Regional Airport touts is its convenient location compared to Logan.

“Getting through Logan is logistically challenging and time consuming. Even if you are flying non-stop out of Boston, you are not saving any more time. The Manchester passenger will probably reach their destination domestically sooner than Logan,” Kitchens points out.

He also believes that Manchester is enjoying the same kind of buzz that cities like Austin, Texas, and Nashville enjoy: “Variety within proximity” is what Manchester has to offer.

The airport is also undergoing some modernization to make it more customer friendly. For example, the airport is adding more electric vehicle charging stations and looking to partner with rental car companies that want to offer electric cars in their fleet. They also want to encourage airlines to use alternative aviation fuels. “We need to add infrastructure to play in that space,” says Kitchens.

According to the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development in Concord, 7,000 additional visitors from four Florida cities flew to New Hampshire in 2022 for the first six months. This resulted in $4 to $5 million of additional spending in the state.

“If we can bring in more of the tourists and keep an eye on sustainability, it helps strengthen the sector that was hit by the pandemic: tourism, travel and hospitality industries.”

Spirit Airlines helped level the playing field in terms of creating lower fares from all the airlines that fly out of Manchester.

The numbers are encouraging. During the first six months of 2022, the airport saw 295,000 passengers fly out of Manchester and about 300,000 passengers fly into Manchester, or 597,000 total. During the same period in 2021, the airport saw 334,000 passengers fly in and out of the airport — a 60 to 70 percent increase over the past year.

“It’s a leisure-led recovery. We are still missing that business traveler,” adds Kitchens.

“It’s an exciting time at the airport and an exciting time in the city, and I certainly think the future looks very bright.”

When the city’s budding biotech sector takes off, Kitchens says Manchester-Regional Airport has the cargo space and capability to serve it and more. “We are a top 50 cargo airport in the nation, behind Logan and Hartford.”

The airport has a multi-tenant 64,000-square-foot cargo facility which will double their capacity, and can be expanded to as much as 100,000 square feet. It also allows Manchester to be more connected to the world of e-commerce.

Kitchens is optimistic the airport will get back to its peak performance in 2005 when they had 4 million passengers. “I would love to get back to that point, but there is a long road for us to travel to get there. If we get to one million out and one million in, I will be very happy.”

At City Hall, Jodie Nazaka was asked what Manchester could look like when all of this current economic development activity comes to fruition. She

believes the city could resemble either Asheville, N.C., or Greenville, S.C., in 25 years.

The three cities have a great deal in common, she notes. They have similar populations, a thriving arts and culture scene, and a great complement of young professionals who value city life as well as nearby outdoor recreational options.

Nazaka believes the city and business community have assembled all of the necessary pieces that will propel the city’s economic resurgence from a former textile powerhouse during the Industrial Revolution to a biotech manufacturing giant with a pretty awesome city to boot.

“We appreciate how far we’ve come and where we’ve been, and we see we have a lot more to do.” n

Manchester Biofabrication Industry Eyes Tremendous Growth

Manchester’s iconic mills, once a textile manufacturing powerhouse on the Merrimack River that provided thousands of jobs, will do so again thanks to an emerging biotech boom.

In September of 2022, coalition members — including the City of Manchester, Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and the Manchester Transit Authority — were awarded $44 million in federal grants from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).

ARMI is spearheading the biomanufacturing of cells, tissues and organs (called biofabrication, or biofab for short)

and conducting cutting-edge biotech research to the Manchester Millyard, bringing as many as 7,000 direct jobs and more than 30,000 total jobs to southern New Hampshire.

ARMI officials believe Manchester will be a leader in biotech research that will enable companies to improve health care for millions of people who suffer from debilitating diseases and traumatic injuries.

“This award helps to secure Manchester and the region as the destination for biofabrication,” said

“This work secures Manchester and the region’s role in building the biofabrication industry. This is an industry that will change the way we treat, care for and ultimately cure disease. Regenerative manufacturing holds the promise of tackling some of the world’s most challenging health care problems from heart disease and diabetes to public health preparedness; biofabrication is paving the way for a transformation in health care.”

UNH at Manchester has also been involved with the effort to bring biofabrication manufacturing to Manchester since ARMI was awarded an $80 million U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) grant to establish BioFabUSA as a national

platform in 2016. The university built a related facility shortly after the grant was awarded.

“What we built is a multi-use facility that combines bio wet-lab infrastructure for university research and degree instructional purposes with teaching labs. Most importantly, we host small biotech companies that are looking for state-of-the-art biotech lab facilities but cannot build their own,” says Mike Decelle, dean of UNH at Manchester and Granite State College and chief workforce officer at ARMI.

One of the most important tenets and largest programmatic component of the more recent grant is that ARMI creates programs to help segments of the Manchester population who lack education and opportunities to receive training in this field, so they could work in a future manufacturing facility.

“You will need everything from people working in the factory — from servicing automation equipment to scientists who are thinking about the third, fourth and fifth generation of the manufacturing floor and how it will evolve to produce complex tissue and organs,” says Decelle. “It is a workforce challenge that goes from K to gray.”

The idea of doing such a radical pivot from bioscience equipment to biomanufacturing didn’t really occur to anyone until 2016, Decelle explains. “Biofabrication of tissue and organs was not even in the conversation. Bioscience equipment was. It wasn’t even contemplated in our wildest dreams. Before 2016, it was not on the radar screen at all.”

How huge is the potential of a new biofabrication and research facility here in Manchester? Decelle believes it is right up there with Silicon Valley.

“I liken it to the textile industry of the past, when we did have a true anchor industry in Manchester — one that really provides support to the entire community in the broadest sense. And it’s that sort of identity we have the potential to create here.”

ARMI’s main objective is to create a manufacturing platform that can be configured to support multiple products at the same time for mass production, which will attract the biggest and best biofab companies who need those facilities.

On ARMI’s team, Chief Inovation Officer Julie Lenzer is in charge of making this happen. According to her, the DoD and the EDA believe Manchester is a place where everything from the necessary workforce, facilities, engineering, research scientists and business expertise can be brought to bear. “That was the real lynchpin,” she says.

“We have a good portion of our members who want to bring products to market. While we have been focused on the technical, manufacturing and standards piece, we need to give them more help on the business side of this.”

Until ARMI came into being, there wasn’t a mechanism to transform a concept into reality.

“We had all these great inventions and discoveries happening in academic labs, but no bridge between that and how you could manufacture these products and benefit people’s lives,” says Stefany Shaheen, ARMI’s chief strategy officer. “This industry as a whole didn’t exist, because there were different pieces in different places.”

The task is still monumental. ARMI must create processes that enable multiple companies to engage in commercial production of cells, tissues and organs while collecting critical process data and other best practices to meet the strict standards inherent in this type of biomanufacturing.

“The government loves to invest in projects that have been de-risked through other investments,” says Lenzer. “We had proven to be good stewards of government resources, but we also have the potential to build the industry right here in Manchester.”

In 10 years, Lenzer believes the new biofab manufacturing industry could cut Manchester’s 14.1 percent poverty rate significantly. “Even just 1 or 2 percent is more than 3,000 people in the city.”

Part of the company’s workforce outreach program will use a UNH Manchester mobile biofab van that

will go into the community and engage residents and visit city schools.

“Our high school program, BioTrek, has also been effective. When (students) learn this can help their family members living with health issues and chronic disease, they’re in,” says Lenzer. “The case is clear when people can see the potential for this industry to change the way we treat chronic disease.”

Construction of the new manufacturing facility will begin in 2023. The EDA grant is for five years, and ARMI will continue to report the growth and job creation for 10 years.

In addition to creating the proper manufacturing facility and processes, ARMI must also address workforce-related issues such as having sufficient workforce housing, transportation and other services. The City of Manchester, Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission and UNH Manchester are providing support for that part of the process.

Besides creating a manufacturing facility of up to 100,000 square feet in one of the existing mills, the grant proposal also calls for creating a vertiport at the Manchester Armory for aerial transportation of cells, tissues and organs to regional clinical sites via electric vertical take-off and landing planes.

ARMI foresees a lot of education and outreach with doctors, insurance companies and health care facilities about this new technology and how it can help treat patients who suffer with chronic diseases. They will also have to raise the capital to help startups get the investment they need. “To develop a personalized heart or other organ is not an inexpensive endeavor,” Lenzer explains. “It takes a village.”

Or in this case, a proud mill city that is ready to usher in a biotech revolution to raise up its populace with untold economic opportunities and medical advances that will save lives. n

Manchester Health Care Providers Step Up to Serve More Area Residents

The past few years have seen great shifts in the health care landscape, and Manchester’s medical organizations are at the forefront of this transformation. From top-notch cancer care and improved telehealth services to increased access for minority populations, change is happening.

Dr. Pamela Hofley, medical director at Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics Manchester, says health care accessibility for everyone, including minorities and multilingual patients, is a critical need they are facing head on.

“We are working hard to hire new providers and expand our services, and offer different models of care as well by expanding our telehealth appointments,” says Hofley.

For example, Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics added a new Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) on the Manchester campus last year with six modern operating rooms and three minor procedure rooms. The ASC serves patients across the southern region of Dartmouth Health and can manage extended stays of up to 23 hours. A new infusion therapy site where patients can receive infusion treatments was also created.

Free health education programs are geared toward mental health awareness, diabetes management, genetic counseling and weight loss.

Dartmouth Health Children’s services have been enhanced so that families don’t have to travel to Lebanon or Boston to find the best specialists.

Hofley says Dartmouth Health is the first health care organization in the country to offer the latest innovation in MRI technology. The new MRI unit at the Manchester Clinic has a twist: an entertainment screen, which can help kids (and adults) feel a little more comfortable during a noisy and lengthy procedure.

Covid-19 has also given rise to increasingly accessible telehealth services, which have been integrated into the medical record for seamless service, upping the convenience

factor. Today, Hofley says, more than 10 percent of visits are via telehealth.

Catholic Medical Center (CMC) is also making many efforts to transform the health and quality of care for its patients.

Staff with Catholic Medical Center’s outreach program, Healthcare for the Homeless (HCH), are also prepared to address the pressing issues in Manchester’s many diversified communities.

HCH is a service of the Manchester Health Department and has locations at the Manchester Recovery and Treatment Center and at two Families in Transition shelters in the city. HCH offers primary medical care, homeless outreach, substance abuse care, behavioral care, case management, language services, health education, home visits, street medicine, dental care and more for the medically underserved and other at-risk populations.

Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, a social worker and a program assistant are part of the HCH staff.

Paul Mertzic, RN, and nurse case manager Delfine Ondieki work at CMC’s Wilson Street Integrated Health clinic at 293 Wilson Street as part of the

www.manchester-chamber.org MANCHESTER MAGAZINE 45

umbrella of Manchester Recovery and Treatment Center.

While both say there is much to be done, the HCH program has increased access to care, such as a phlebotomy program.

“Clients can get their blood drawn right there at the site. They don’t have to go to another location,” says Mertzic. It’s a street medicine team, created in response to challenges that Covid posed, and has been “a very, very successful program.”

CMC understands that effective outreach should also include forming meaningful connections with clients.

“So much of this builds on relationships and the fact that it’s an integrated primary care model. You have to build that trust, that relationship, especially with at-risk populations, in order to really provide the level of care that needs to be there,” says Mertzic.

Mertzic and Ondieki say it’s not just a transportation issue, or a language issue, or a financial issue, or tackling rampant misinformation.

An ongoing trust must reach across cultures and ways of life as well.

Staff at CMC bridge that through research and spending time talking with people from all walks of life.

“It’s building that relationship, it’s listening to them, it’s understanding. We work with the International Institute for help settling the refugees. So it’s an

ongoing effort to know and understand those cultures. We learn a lot from every client as well,” says Mertzic.

While Mertzic says “telehealth has been a huge advantage” for people without transportation since Covid, more work needs to be done.

“We really make good use of video and audio interpreters and consults,” says Ondieki.

The two provide other important lifelines for disadvantaged communities.

For example, Ondieki works with the school system to keep kids up to date with physicals and immunizations, so that they can play on the soccer team with their friends, for example.

“We have Delfine, who’s very versed in a lot of the African cultures. She’s done a lot of work in educating us,” says Mertzic.

To bridge the language gap and get clients to appointments, staff members often accompany patients on their specialty health visits.

“CMC has done a great job from a community perspective. We certainly like to provide service for our community, versus just dollars,” says Mertzic.

Dr. Simon Khagi, medical director of Dartmouth Cancer Center for Manchester and Nashua, understands that transportation issues have been a roadblock to care for multilingual patients and those on the poverty line.

Fortunately, there are solutions to these roadblocks.

For nearly 20 years, Dartmouth

Health has partnered with Catholic Medical Center to provide a full-service clinic. The cancer center on McGregor Street, across from the main hospital, is Dartmouth Cancer Center’s “base of operations” for oncology services like doctor visits, labs, imaging and infusions for patients in the southern region.

It’s an effective and vital link.

“Having that partnership with CMC is incredibly valuable for the patient population. They are an invaluable resource to the patients in the West Manchester area especially, who are less advantaged,” says Khagi.

And they want to continue that tradition of quality health care.

“One of our strategic imperatives for Dartmouth Health is to become a resource for all of Southern New Hampshire ... without the need for them to go elsewhere for their care,” says Khagi.

The Dartmouth Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the state, aims to provide the best, most specialized cancer care in Southern Hampshire — thereby eliminating the hassle of getting to Boston.

At Elliot Health Systems, hospital staff are also using more state-of-the-art technology to treat their patients closer to home.

According to Elliot Health Systems officials, Elliot 1-Day Surgery is the first Ambulatory Surgery Center in New Hampshire to offer robotic-assisted surgery with a new da Vinci surgical

robot. The technology will be used for general, gynecological and urological procedures, and it is in addition to their current total joint MAKO robotic system. Robotic-assisted surgery expands options for patients who need minimally invasive surgery and are able to return home the same day. The service that was previously provided at the main campus for more than a decade is now offered at the one-day surgery center.

Elliot General Surgeon Dr. Daiying Lu said, “This new robotic technology was added specifically to help with our patients’ care. The technology is safe, precise, and makes it possible to provide a wider range of outpatient surgical options. As a surgeon, I have the highest confidence that our patients are getting the best care possible when they come to The Elliot,” says Dr. Lu.

and telehealth appointments, where people at home can safely confide in a trusted professional. Transportation issues have been virtually eliminated as a barrier to receiving care.

The technology allows for the surgeon to use a console that provides high-definition views of the surgical area, according to Elliot Health Systems officials. With smooth precision, the surgeon controls instruments that move like a human hand but with greater range of motion.

Amoskeag Health President and CEO Kris McCracken says the medical provider’s community health center embraces Manchester’s diversity and has a long history of providing access and support for underserved or minority communities.

About 45 percent of patient visits require interpreters. To address the need, Amoskeag has 11 staff interpreters. Sixty-two languages are spoken by Amoskeag patients, and around 6,500 patients use interpreters during visits.

“For us, language access has always been a huge demand. About half of our staff are bilingual or bicultural,” says McCracken.

The pandemic prompted the untapped potential of virtual meetings

“If you’ve got a patient who has difficulty getting into the office, and ambulation is a problem and they’re Spanish speaking, nobody has to leave home now, which is wonderful,” says McCracken.

In addition to staff interpreters who speak Nepali, Vietnamese, Swahili, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Maay Maay, Amoskeag Health uses both telephonic and video remote interpreting (VRI) to provide interpretation in additional languages.

Amoskeag Health has also improved its patient engagement software so patients can send paperwork, virtually sign documents or cancel appointments with ease and without having to come to the clinic.

But they’re integrating virtual care and in-person care in other unique ways.

Amoskeag Health received grant funding from the State of New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Services this year to work in collaboration with the Manchester School District to expand school-based health services. The behavioral health needs of students in the Manchester schools have been served by Amoskeag Health’s masters-level clinicians for several

years and families have been supported by Community Health Workers in four schools. This new grant funding expands those services to more schools and adds a pilot program to provide medical care within the school.

As the first clinic of its kind in New Hampshire, Amoskeag Health will be providing acute care access for students at Gossler Park and Beech Street Elementary schools. The school nurses will work as a team with an Amoskeag Health pediatric nurse practitioner and medical assistant. If the school nurses would normally send the student home or encourage an appointment with the primary care provider (PCP), now, with parental permission, students can be assessed in their school setting and start receiving care right away.

Students may still be sent home or sent to their PCP, but the Amoskeag Health team can do testing for strep or flu on-site and then get the student started on a course of antibiotics immediately, instead of having to wait for the next available appointment with their PCP.

These services will all happen with the assistance of technology. The medical assistant will use specialized equipment that can capture images of a child’s throat, or the sounds of a cough, and transmit them to the nurse practitioner for diagnosis.

“It’s a whole new world for us,” says McCracken. n

HEALTH CARE

From advanced neonatal care to stateof-the art heart surgery, the Greater Manchester medical community provides a degree of sophistication that is unusual in an area its size. The region is served by four major health facilities, an extensive new outpatient medical facility, walk-in clinics and more than 700 licensed physicians affiliated with Manchester’s two hospitals alone. These facilities and private practices are supplemented by a network of nonprofit health services organizations. In the past few years, many private practices, HMOs and clinics expanded or relocated to the area.

TO A BRIGHT FUTURE

The greater Manchester area needs more skilled workers to keep up with the demand spurred by heightened construction activity and economic development. Fortunately, two Queen City schools are helping students and workers learn new trades and enjoy great success.

The Manchester School of Technology and the New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades each have accredited programs that give people the skills they need for the jobs of today and tomorrow — as long as they are willing to get their hands dirty.

New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades Director Dean Millard reveals a common misconception among incoming Electrical 101 students.

“I can’t tell you how many people love electrical — until they get in,” he says, explaining that some expect the job to be neat and clean.

“When you start in electrical,

you’re pulling wire. It’s tough. It’s dirty.”

Learning any trade can be difficult and demanding, but perspective shifts once you’ve found your chosen field.

“It’s hard. But when you love it, it’s not hard,” says Millard, who studied plumbing in high school and wants to help others improve their life and enrich their future.

Students at New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades, with locations in Hampton and Manchester, can learn several different disciplines: HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), gas heat, oil heat, electrical and plumbing.

Students can become journeyman electricians, oil heat technicians, plumbers, AC technicians, gas piping installers, gas service technicians and more. Hands-on classes run in the mornings and evenings. License renewals for both New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and apprenticeship and OSHA safety classes are available.

Millard, and vice president John Duff, who both taught oil heating at the Peterson School of Steam Engineering, conceived the idea for a trade school with Millard’s late father Robert. The institution is built on more than 60 years of teaching experience.

Millard and Duff say working in the trades is a team effort.

“We tell them — trade is really cool. When it comes down to it, it’s like a football team.”

And the school’s teachers are the coaches who prepare high school

54 MANCHESTER MAGAZINE www.manchester-chamber.org

students to enter the growing workforce, thus bridging the gap between those fresh to the discipline and seasoned workers.

“Seniors have already got their curriculum and everything that’s needed to graduate. That way they can walk right into the field as soon as they’re done,” says Millard.

And the jobs are there for the taking.

“There are so many jobs. I mean, it’s ridiculous ... We’ve had some really good success stories. People that literally started their own business now have four, five, six trucks on the road with employees,” says Duff.

“That’s the kind of thing that we want.”

Another incentive: the pay. A master electrician can make somewhere between $62,000 and $80,000 annually.

The school works with students so that they can reasonably afford the classes.

“We will find a way to help you get that financing,” says Duff.

Visiting the New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades may inspire students to try something new.

“We’re gonna find something that you enjoy. We’re gonna get you on the right track,” says Duff.

The way they see it, working in mechanical trades will never go out of style.

“If you know how something runs, you know how to fix it,” says Millard.

Manchester School of Technology Principal Timothy Otis wants to set the record straight: Trade schools are just as valuable as traditional schools.

“One of the misconceptions out there is when students come here,

it’s like, ‘They’re just coming to learn a trade,’” says Otis. But it’s much more than that. Students at MST meet mandated high school graduation requirements, which lets them still prepare for college while learning a trade — the best of both worlds.

And a successful one at that. According to its website, the school boasts a staggering daily attendance rate of 95 percent. Eighty-one percent of its four-year students and 96.4 percent of fiveyear students graduate.

No wonder Manchester School of Technology was recognized in 2014 as a School of Excellence from the NH Commissioner of Education.

The magnet school began in 1982 as a regional Career and Technology Education Center (CTE), serving the three Manchester high schools and students from surrounding towns.

It’s one of 22 regional career and technical centers that offers twoand three-year CTE programs.

“We have something for everybody. When you look at the diversity, from game designing and computer graphics, to building houses to building airplanes and cosmetology and culinary, this is the largest CTE center in the state with programs,” says Otis.

MST is divided into the CTE portion and the traditional high school portion.

CTE students, who receive traditional letter grades, attend the school for daily 100-minute blocks, then attend their own high school for the rest of their day.

Instead of traditional letter grades, full-time MST high school students are graded on a competency-based number system, with fewer standardized tests and more hands-on project-based learning.

“If they haven’t met full competency, we don’t say they failed, they just haven’t met it yet,” says Otis.

“It’s reinforcing their skills of collaboration and communication.”

High school freshmen who earn 7 3/4 credits can enter CTE as a sophomore, leaving enough time for students to learn all the ins and outs of their chosen field.

“It’s not uncommon, for example, for a culinary student to do two years of culinary, then take a year of business principles so that they learn how to run a business.”

The school offers 19 trade programs including automotive technology and collision, construction, culinary, cosmetology, video

production and video game design.

“We have a whole branch of construction, which includes a plumbing program, an electrical program, construction program and a landscaping program.”

Besides transforming students into attractive employees for local businesses, students have transformed the skies — literally.

In 2019, 12 CTE students began building an FAA-approved airplane: a two-seater RV-12iS, with help from local volunteers and an aviation mechanical teacher. The pilot program is a collaboration between MST, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire and the Texas educational nonprofit Tango Flights. It’s a self-sustaining program — Tango sends the kits and students build it using supplied blueprints with help from Aviation Museum mentors. Then, to keep the project in the air, Tango sells the plane to pay for the next kit.

The project was funded through the museum and private donations.

“Our museum also tries to inspire young people to be the next generation of pioneers and

innovators,” says Aviation Museum Executive Director Jeff Rapsis about the collaboration.

Students aren’t simply opening boxes and following directions; they’re receiving lasting impressions.

“They’re working side by side with the students, guiding the process,” Otis explains, adding that it’s the only high school plane-building program in the state — and just the fourth in the country.

“A mentor relationship develops. So much knowledge transfer can take place. That’s a great value to a high school student,” says Rapsis. Back on the ground, MST-CTE students have been steadily reshaping the local landscape — building new, three-bedroom homes. The endeavor came about through a partnership with the volunteer nonprofit vocational organization VOPAR (Vocational Partnership of Region 15).

Mentors help students built various components of the home, like basic framing, electrical, plumbing and more.

All 24 homes on Stanton Street in Manchester were built by MST students. The most recently built home sold the first day it hit the

open market in 2020, thus funding the students’ next build and MST scholarships.

Land is being cleared for the future development of eight more homes, with a build goal of September 2023.

There’s even more on the horizon. The manufacturing class purchased a robotic arm that’s used to manufacture Teslas, and the possible construction of an electric vehicle is being eyed.

As Manchester continues to grow, the Manchester School of Technology and the New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades are feeding more tradespeople into the pipeline to accommodate that growth. For those who are willing to master a trade, future opportunities to achieve personal prosperity are very rich indeed. n

Manchester Entrepreneurs Break New Ground in Many Sectors

Manchester has traditionally been a hot bed for business professionals who possess strong entrepreneurial spirit and creativity to turn their ideas into successful business ventures. Queen City businesses are also offering their employees and new hires an impressive array of benefits and perks to position themselves and Manchester as the best place to work.

Perks like a four-day work week, gym memberships, sign-on bonuses and the ability to work remotely from home or hybrid that were not even plausible just a few short years ago are now the norm.

For example, at XMA Corp., General Manager Peter Richard said they have added several benefits and perks within the past 24 months to retain valued employees and for new hires. Some of these include:

⚫ Introduced a “spot” bonus program for all employees

⚫ Implemented a 9/80 work schedule, allowing for every other Friday off

⚫ Extended Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Essential Worker Compensation at the company’s expense

⚫ Turkey dinners (w/ all the fixings) for all employees and their families

⚫ Virtual wine tastings

⚫ Employee outings at the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Palace Theatre, NH Food Bank, Manchester Taco Tour, Road Races, and various holiday events

Richard says they also voluntarily close their plant the last week of the year and pay all existing staff and temporary employees as a way to say “thanks” and to ensure an equitable “mental health” break from work.

Some other benefits offered by XMA Corp. include giving employees the ability to eliminate deductibles on employee health care plans and providing pet insurance and a student loan repayment assistance program, Richard explains.

Richard says his company is also doing more compensation studies to make sure existing and new employees

receive pay that is in line with the rest of their industry.

“With the labor market as competitive as it is — especially in manufacturing — we recognized our cadence needed to change to remain competitive,” says Richard.

XMA Corporation-Omni Spectra is a manufacturer of passive microwave components. The company supplies products to the military, aerospace, test, measurement and commercial markets.

Manchester’s cooperative workspace market is also flourishing as companies give their employees greater flexibility to work fully remote or hybrid. Work co-op businesses like Spark Offices, Red Oak Co-Working Offices, CEO Bedford, WBC Office Suites and New England Executive Center in Bedford are also providing startup businesses with cost-effective solutions.

For example, In the economic downturn in 2006, Michelle Gray, founder of HR Synergy, was the HR director for a con-

struction company. After working with management to reduce the workforce by more than 70 percent, Michelle knew it was time for a change.

Not sure what that would be, she saw the opportunity to build her outsourced human resources consulting firm. Today, Michelle has no regrets and enjoys the opportunity for her team to provide valuable human resource support to various employers across the United States.

When asked why she chose to establish her business in Manchester, Michelle says, “Manchester is my favorite location to work. To me, it’s the warmest community with many opportunities to support the community and build a business.”

Gray, who founded HR Synergy in 2009, has about 75 clients across the U.S.; her consultants provide support in all areas of human resources.

As a result of Covid, people’s perceptions on how and where they can work have shifted dramatically

Now that working from home has become the norm, people are realizing they don’t have to live where they work, and many individuals are finding that Manchester offers everything they could want or need for quality of life.

Gray says working in Manchester “was the best move that I ever made,” pointing to the city’s “tight knit” business community as the glue.

“There are amazing people, connections and opportunity in the city of Manchester that I would have never found if I hadn’t situated my business here. And it’s grown significantly over the years, which is fantastic.”

Gray has an office at Spark Offices, a collaborative workspace at 500 N. Commercial St. Spark is owned by Chris Duhaime, who also runs Pivot Creative, a full-service marketing agency.

Duhaime found out timing is everything when he opened Spark Offices.

“We actually launched in March of 2020. So we hadn’t even really gotten off the ground” pre-pandemic, Duhaime says.

But it didn’t take long for his new business venture to show a profit. “We were able to get into the black within six months of opening,” he says.

Post-pandemic, budding solo entrepreneurs and larger companies needed a quiet place to work without high office fees, and that’s where Spark comes in. It offers 12 work stations, a large space, a conference room, and two private offices and membership packages.

From Duhaime’s perspective, entrepreneurship is trending here.

“Employees are taking a second look at their careers and making a decision of whether they want to work for somebody or if they want to try to build something on their own,” Duhaime says.

Companies are also listening to employees’ needs, like requesting freedom to work when or where they want. Duhaime calls this changing workforce a “flex.”

Alison Milioto of Blue Lion, an HR consulting company 13 employees strong, is also happy to call Manchester, and Spark Offices, home.

“Pre-Covid, the thought of remote assistance was foreign to a lot of companies. We were one of the industries that have actually been fortunate through Covid to be able to grow a lot. We were the lemonade that was made out of the lemons,” says Milioto.

Besides flex-time needs, work schedules are also changing.

“As long as the work is done by the deadline, owners are more lenient,” Milioto says.

Some Manchester entrepreneurs like Max and Saverna Ahmad made a slight pivot with their transportation company to benefit from the ride-sharing wave that is enjoying a resurgence post-pandemic.

Saverna Ahmad is chief technology officer and co-founder of Rydelinx, and Max Ahmad is its founder and CEO.

Ahmad, who has also owned the Manchester-based Bluesky Transportation Company for nearly 20 years, found strong competitors in rideshare companies Uber and Lyft, and decided the “if you can’t beat them, join them” attitude was the way to success.

In 2018 he formed Rydelinx, a luxury ridesharing service from which both drivers and riders can benefit. Through their app, customers can tailor their trip details

and negotiate pay, what driver they want to use, and even what car they’d like.

Max Ahmad says it’s “Expedia for transportation.”

Rydelinx is available in about 20 states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Chicago, Minnesota and even Hawaii.

The Ahmad’s, who have lived here for about 25 years, appreciate resources like the Small Business Development Center, the Greater Manchester Chamber, and the New Hampshire Tech Alliance.

“Our business adviser, Andrea O’Brien, she’s been a fairy godmother to us ... showing us different types of brands or different ways to get funding or different avenues to pitch our startup. I think Manchester is a perfect, ideal location to have a business or to be a business owner,” Saverna Ahmad says.

Eric Anderson is vice president of sales and business development at Symbol Security, a cybersecurity business. Headquartered in New Jersey and with a sales and marketing hub in Manchester, Symbol Security helps customers cut cyber risk and adhere to compliance requirements using simulated phishing exercises. It also offers interactive training content and awareness of risk data across domain registries and the dark web.

Symbol Security, which works with

about 1,200 companies, boasts some eye-popping growth stats.

“From 2020 to 2021, we had a 300 percent revenue year-over-year growth achievement and a 349 percent year-over-year growth achievement from a customer acquisition perspective. We will see triple-digit growth again this year,” Anderson says.

Like so many other business owners, Anderson chose Spark Offices.

“We could easily have gone to Boston, Cambridge or other tech hubs. Manchester is the right place to foster our company growth,” Anderson says. Manchester “gives us the ability to recruit from a diverse local talent pool.”

And millennial workers seek that bigcity vibe when finding a place to work and live.

“(Young professionals) traditionally want to be able to go out after work for a cocktail, or walk across the street and get lunch. Manchester is actually a really good spot for that,” he says.

Duhaime says Spark is working with the New Hampshire Tech Alliance on creating more co-working spaces as a sort of “tech hub.”

Stephanie Baxter, director of programming and engagement at NHTA, which brings awareness and resources

to the business community, confirmed the collaboration.

“Spark is managing the space, and we will work out of there as well,” Baxter says.

The new space will include hot desks, where people can work weekdays for a monthly fee. Baxter advises those interested to reach Jenna at Spark at jenna@ thepivotplan.com.

Julie Glosner is southern regional director for the NH Small Business Development Center, which provides one-on-one advising to small businesses. The NH SBDC has office space through UNH, with offices at the Durham and Manchester campuses. A nationwide organization, the SBDC is partly funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Department of Business and Economic Affairs.

To keep employees and attract new ones, Glosner says more employers now offer remote scheduling, flexible hours and increasing benefits. Employers are also more receptive to non-traditional employees — interns, people with disabilities, the senior workforce and the formerly incarcerated.

“They’re getting some of their junior staff and moving them into new roles. It’s giving more opportunities to the staff that are loyal,” Glosner says.

To better understand the challenges small businesses face, the SBDC recently conducted its 2022 New Hampshire Small Business Survey with help from the UNH Survey Center.

Among the key findings: When it comes to businesses’ financial health, the survey found that people younger than 40 who work in health care or manufacturing are optimistic about what’s to come. When businesses were asked about their 2023 outlook, many cited the lack of sales or income tax, good quality of life, and a “supportive business opportunity” as positive factors.

Companies are turbo-charging their hiring strategies, too, like holding open houses to snag candidates or leaving a “hiring” sign out perpetually.

As greater Manchester area businesses compete for more workers to fill their professional ranks and to retain their workers, employees will undoubtedly see even more perks come their way. There may never be a better time to get a new job, especially in the greater Manchester area. n
