Creating Tomorrow’s Workforce Today
Professionals from around the world are proud to call Florida’s Capital home. Why? Because it offers all the benefits and amenities of a big city in a community with a small-town feel. Here, we celebrate what makes us unique, like our high racial and gender diversity. Thanks to the colocation of major research colleges and universities, including Florida A&M University, Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, and Lively Technical Institute, our community has embraced and applied a laser-like focus on reducing gaps women and minorities face.
This colocation along with the state government has organically grown a critical mass of innovative companies seeking the best and brightest our region has to offer. Florida’s Capital may seem small, but the opportunity here is huge. Our talent supply rivals the national average, and as we build the bridge between what is and what could be, the competition will soon increase. Our low cost of living and relatively young average age means businesses that choose our community leverage fresh talent and low overhead costs to move their mission forward.
