Build it better, faster, with a mobilized workforce.

 

“Build it and they will come” has become a well-known aphorism since the debut of the 1980s cinematic baseball fantasy, Field of Dreams. But when it comes to building a mobilized all-star workforce, it’s no fantasy in Borger. It’s a real-life, ongoing success.

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys covering the radius of Borger, Dumas, Amarillo, and Pampa put available workforce at over 150,000. However, Borger has more than an available labor pool; instead we have an activated workforce— the American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates show that nearly 25% of Borger’s workforce are commuters, with almost 10% of workers driving in from another county to join Borger teams that not only do global business, but also have global reputations for quality. In short, we have built a better jobs environment and workers are happy to come.

Workers flow in on uncongested highways that allow them to access Borger with ease. (The same highways that allow goods to flow out swiftly and cost-effectively.) They come attracted by a rewarding environment that offers higher job satisfaction and great training. They come invited by a positive pro-business climate where business and industry, community and workforce all work together toward powerful prosperity, and where a city that began as a boomtown leverages human and natural resources for enduring stability and success.

Local industry is growing with confidence and with an activated, mobilized workforce. Build your business in Borger, and you can be sure the best will come to join you.
