Talent & Workforce
Fulton County is experiencing massive growth and as a result, so is our workforce. Growing at a rate of 2.3% in 2019, with the majority of those having a bachelor’s degree or higher, it’s no wonder that companies are finding the talent here that they need to thrive.
Companies like Coca Cola, Microsoft, ASOS, UPS, CNN, Home Depot, Delta, and WestRock, to name a few, cite talent as a strategic differentiator in the decision to locate or expand in our market. Our talent pool helps set us apart as one of the top three labor markets in the U.S.
Additionally, entities such as the Metro Atlanta Chamber have started workforce attraction programs such as ChooseATL. ChooseATL is dedicated to attracting and retaining talent by showcasing Atlanta's lifestyle and culture, evolving perceptions, and engaging the next generation in building a community we are all proud to call home. Our vision is to make Atlanta the most promising global metro where emerging talent can create the lives, careers, and impact they want in order to make their mark on the world.
