Measure your city’s business attractiveness and create a plan to bring in investment
Having a multinational organization select your city as its new company site can bring enormous economic advantages. Companies are eager to identify emerging talent hubs as they set up operations in new markets.
For their cities to stand out and attract businesses and the investments they bring, city leaders need a clear understanding of the specific factors that affect quality of living for their residents. Addressing the issues that may lower a city’s quality of living and highlighting where it succeeds can provide a sustainable competitive advantage.
