Columbus, Ohio a Robust Economy, now designated a Federal Workforce Hub

By Sabrina Eaton,

WASHINGTON, D. C. – Columbus will be among five new “Workforce Hubs,” where the Biden administration will partner with state and local officials, employers, unions, community colleges, high schools, and other stakeholders to develop training programs to meet the region’s demands for labor.

White House officials described the five areas around the country that will get the designation – which also include Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Augusta, Georgia – as “cities and regions where we’ve seen significant concentration of public and private sector investments, often focused on specific industries.”

Columbus, Ohio has been a balanced workhorse when it comes to economic drivers, labor growth, and reliable career paths for professionals. It has also been a powerhouse nationally when it comes to attracting business development. What’s more the Columbus economy is very well diversified with no sector accounting for more than 19% of revenue. This recipe has made it very attractive to real estate investors. And while the future looks bright, the current economic landscape has many investors concerned and hesitant about making new investment. SVN Wilson has sold hundreds of millions of dollars of investment real estate through the various economic cycles. Reach out today to discuss the current market and your property.
