If you are looking for work, there is no better place to do it than in the Inland Empire. Recent statistics confirm that the area is booming, with new business and record job growth.
In fact, employment in the area is now higher than it was before the recession. The economy has added 50,000 jobs a year for the past three years, according to a regional economist, adding that this kind of job growth has never happened before in the area. He predicted the region will add almost 60,000 jobs in 2016.
Another reason for the growth in the region is the more affordable housing prices compared to Los Angeles and Orange County. And the housing construction in the region remains strong.
Another key growth area in the region is logistics. A number of online shopping companies have built huge warehouses in the area to process and ship customer orders. Online retailers like Amazon are building in the area because the land is cheaper and relatively close to ports.
Business officials also pointed to the Ontario International Airport as a catalyst for growth in the area. Local control of the airport should bring more airlines back to the area, resulting in more jobs at the airport. It’s a great option for travelers looking to avoid a busy Los Angeles International airport.
The quality of the job growth in the Inland Empire has exceeded that of the state as a whole.
Another economic index sponsored by an area university shows the area has had a four-month run of sustained growth. Business managers are hiring for permanent jobs, not temporary ones. Some business people attributed the growth to greater consumer confidence. Almost 80 percent of purchasing managers expected the economy to either remain unchanged or expand for the remainder of 2016.
One business owner reported that his company had the most sales in its history over the last five years, and sales have doubled over the past year.
All of these signs add up to a great economic outlook for the region!
