Georgia has recently been ranked in the following categories:
- NO. 1 STATE FOR BUSINESS (SITE SELECTION + AREA DEVELOPMENT, 2015)

- NO. 1 LABOR CLIMATE (AREA DEVELOPMENT, 2015)

There are many reasons why Georgia consistently ranks as the top state for business. Companies access global markets through seamless air, sea, rail and highway networks – including the Port of Savannah, the fourth-largest and fastest-growing container seaport in North America, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the most traveled, most efficient passenger airport in the world.
Georgia’s workforce of more than 6.3 million is constantly refreshed by the growing number of people who move here along with the 90,000 graduates from 85 colleges, technical colleges and universities across the state, including nationally-ranked Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University and the University of Georgia.
A culture of collaboration fuels the growth of Georgia’s diverse economy. It is reflected in the state’s pro-business framework, cutting-edge research centers and organizations such as the Centers of Innovation and internationally-acclaimed Quick Start, which consistently ranks as the top workforce development program in the nation.
Eighteen Fortune 500 headquarters and more than 450 Fortune 500 companies call Georgia home because of the high quality of life and low cost of doing business. Dynamic landscapes from the mountains to the beaches to vibrant metropolitan areas create an ideal place to grow a family and build a business.
