WORKFORCE INTELLIGENCE FOR GROWING BUSINESS
“We know more about our labor market as a result of working with GSG and I think any forward thinking region, their workforce and economic development partners alike, would find a lot of benefit to this approach.”
Ever wonder why that “other” community consistently has success with existing business expansion, new entrepreneurial development, and new business attraction? Ever wonder why not our community? Ever have an elected official or someone from your non-profit board question why your community didn’t win that recent project?
According to Area Development Magazine’s 12th Annual Consultants Survey, the availability of labor and labor costs are the number one and number two most important site selection factors for company’s evaluating communities for business investment. With this in mind, it is critical for communities to be prepared for these conversations by positioning themselves for success by commissioning a third-party labor certification of the Area Labor Market.
A primary GSG goal is to help clients address the ongoing market and workforce needs of both existing and prospective businesses to promote investment within their region. New investment leads to creation of new jobs, increased tax base for taxing jurisdictions and municipalities and diversification of the local economy.
IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED?

In my conversations with site selection consultants and corporate real estate representatives, they consistently share their frustrations regarding communities that are not prepared to engage in the site selection process. In many cases, these communities have assets that are attractive to companies but the communities aren’t in a position to quantify these deliverables. More often than not, these communities are eliminated from consideration and may not ever know that they were.
