A Top Metro for IT Talent

The Columbus Region is home to a large IT workforce, spanning industries including healthcare, defense, finance, retail and more. The result is an ecosystem of IT operations that range from consulting startups and services, to sources of capital, to Fortune 500 corporations.

According to New Geography, IT operations in the Region benefit from “the critical fuel for tech growth—educated labor—that is expanding faster in places like Columbus than in Boston, San Jose and San Francisco.”

As employers face a national IT talent shortage, KLG Advisors determined the Columbus Region to be the top metro for IT staffing potential based on concentration of IT talent, growth of IT labor force, and university and college output.
