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?
GET OUR WHITE PAPER ON PREPAREDNESS.
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.

INSIGHTS FROM WORKFORCE ANALYTICS PRACTICE
REPORTS OVER THREE YEARS OLD COULD DISQUALIFY YOUR AREA
if your labor reports are over three years old you run the risk of not being considered by site selectors. Your development efforts could end up being useless without this data. Workforce data is the most critical data needed for any development project. Rember that it takes several months to produce your reports, so you need to start the process prior to the three-year deadline. Watch this video to hear from an experienced economic developer about older reports.
