Companies follow talent. Talent follows jobs.

March 11, 2014

People are on the move. Where are they going? They are flocking to cities where they can find jobs. According to an article by WalletHub, more than 100 million people have moved in the last 5 years. In those five years, 48% of people who are unemployed have moved in order to look for a job. Companies follow talent. Talent follows jobs. Recently, WalletHub ranked Tampa Bay as the Third Best City to Find a Job. "The area’s economy is nearly back to its pre-recession size, however, and only 11 major U.S. cities have fewer employees per capita living below the poverty line.  Tampa’s workforce is also the 8th best paid, when cost of living is taken into account, and also benefits from the 9th most diverse industrial mix." -WalletHub Pasco County is part of the Tampa Bay Super Region and is in the natural growth path for of Tampa Bay. Pasco County is also home to one of the fastest growing communities in the U.S., Wesley Chapel, and it is quickly becoming a hot spot for small to midsize technology companies in Tampa Bay. One of the top qualifiers that companies look for when selecting a location for their company is the availability of a strong workforce. Tampa Bay is working hard to elevate the skills and talents of its current residents, but we are growing fast and new talent is moving here every day. If I were looking for a location for my company I would look to where the jobs are growing; there's Room to Grow in Tampa Bay.  For help with corporate site selection or to just see what kind of incentives Pasco County and the Tampa Bay region offer to companies relocating to the area, contact the Pasco Economic Development Council at 1-800-607-2726 or click here to send them an email.
