The right workforce is crucial to the success of any business. Michigan’s Great Southwest offers an available talent pool of 125,095.
Our proximity to the Indiana border puts us in a place known as "Michiana", encompassing southwest Michigan and northwest Indiana. This strategic location allows us to pull talent from a bi-state workforce. We have access to a projected Michiana labor force of 613,505 within a one hour drive (census.gov). The ability to attract, recruit and retain workers from two states adds to the existing bench strength of our labor shed pipeline. We have the talent you need to fill jobs today and well into the future.
Our regional higher education institutions and workforce development agencies support ongoing innovative and applicable job training initiatives; all designed to build a robust and fully trained talent pool to contribute to the success of your business.
