“Georgia is #1 for business” says Area Development Online
Area Development published its fifth annual Top States for Doing Business and Georgia is number one! Area Development conducts a survey of site consultants, ranking the states based on their number of mentions by the consultants in three overall categories: Business Environment; Labor Climate and Infrastructure and Global Access.
Georgia’s success is due in part to the state’s welcoming and business-friendly government. Employers are enthusiastic about the Georgia legislature’s move to pass significant workers’ compensation reform that cuts costs for business.
Georgia’s Quick Start has ranked as the leading workforce development program among site consultants polled in the Area Development Top States for Doing Business survey in each of the five years it has been conducted.
