    Westminster’s Strong Workforce Makes it an Attractive Place for Employers

    Understanding Westminster's Occupation Group and Hard-To-Find Workforce Concentrations
    One of the top considerations of a company that is looking to expand or move to a new location is workforce availability. Knowledge of the local workforce is a critical tool employers use to make their relocation decisions. For example, DigitalGlobe chose to move its headquarters to Westminster due largely to workforce considerations. With its acquisition of Thornton-based GeoEye and Westminster's proximity to metro Denver workforce pools, the company recognized the value of a central location that could meet its existing and growing workforce needs.
    Overall, Westminster has a broad and diverse workforce. Its strong concentrations in technical disciplines such as computers, engineering and science are reflective of the city and region's robust technology community. Westminster’s technical strength is promising for the future growth of industries that require technology and innovation.
    Further, with its strength in office support and production disciplines, Westminster is well positioned to continue its growth in a variety of office uses as well as sectors like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology and other industries that require technician-level skills.
    There are more than 57,000 Westminster residents in the local workforce with a diverse set of skills, falling into every occupational classification set forth by the federal government. A diverse workforce is attractive to employers who typically seek a wide range of skills to meet their needs.
