Welcome to Business Florida

A Message from Workforce Florida Inc.

Multiple Partners - Singular Purpose

| 9/24/2012

Florida’s highly qualified workforce is the major reason your business should expand or locate here. But don’t just take my word for it. This year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranked Florida No. 1 in America for the caliber of our talent pipeline — a strong sequel to last year’s Chamber ranking as the top workforce and training state.

That distinction reflects our state’s commitment to ensuring we have a globally competitive workforce with the talent and training to help businesses thrive.

Since its creation more than 10 years ago, Workforce Florida Inc. has worked diligently to address the statewide talent needs of industries that diversify Florida’s economy and are targeted for growth, while also providing training programs for companies of all sizes that are seeking to expand or retain their workforce. Two years’ worth of No. 1 rankings tells us we are succeeding.

When deciding where to grow your business, choose Florida. The nation’s best workforce awaits you here.

Workforce Florida and the state’s 24 Regional Workforce Boards are driven by the real-time needs of Florida’s businesses.
