Satisfaction Guaranteed?: Talent Mobility and Regional Satisfaction
2014 (English)In: Seeking Talent for Creative Cities: The Social Dynamics of Economic Innovation / [ed] Jill L. Grant, Toronto: University of Toronto Press , 2014, 99-118 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter draws on interviews with musicians in Toronto to develop a framework to explain their mobility. The findings suggest that musicians are initially attracted by expectations of the amenities and other socioeconomic conditions they will find in a specific location. Places that meet or exceed expectations are deemed authentic. The research provides a nuanced theoretical framework relating regional amenities, attractiveness, and stated mobility intentions to inform policy actions that regions can use to help attract and retain talented individuals.
