Invest, Expand and Thrive

Talent & Workforce

Wake County is experiencing massive growth and as a result, so is our workforce. Growing at a rate of 63 people per day, 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 Red Hat, MetLife, SAS, Ipreo, Quintiles, Credit Suisse, Citrix, and Biogen, to name a few, cite the decision to locate or expand in our market as a strategic differentiator for their company. Our talent pool helps set us apart as one of the top three labor markets in the U.S. Learn more about our Talent and Workforce under our 'Talent and Workforce' portion of our website.
