Workforce Development & Talent Attraction

The Louisville Metro area is a highly accessible, regional talent magnet which capitalizes on its central location, attractiveness of its high quality of life, and low cost of living. Most recently, Livability ranked Louisville the 28th best place to live in the United States, citing an abundance of parks, museums, restaurants and community events, in addition to affordable housing and rental rates.

Louisville’s robust workforce and affordable cost of doing business create a competitive advantage for companies operating in our region. As our population continues to grow reaching 1.3 million residents, we’ve seen an increase in jobs outpacing the national average. In 2018, Glassdoor named Louisville at top 20 city for job hunters. Similarly, Louisville also continues to attract a young educated workforce; SmartAsset named Louisville a top 10 city for new college grads, and a top 15 city where millennials are moving.
