Workforce

Promote Business Diversity

Palm Beach County attracts an abundance of skilled personnel who are drawn by an exceptional quality of life.  Our workforce is hard-working and industrious. With no personal income tax, Floridians are among those that have the highest income, after state and local taxes, in the United States.

The industries that cluster in a given area are a great indicator of the types of jobs, salaries commanded, skill levels required, and educational institutions supporting them that help explain employment dynamics.

A key element in enhancing workforce development is utilizing business and community partners to ensure a skilled and reliable workforce is available for our employers. The Business Development Board works closely with our local workforce board, CareerSource Palm Beach County, and the Palm Beach County Education Commission to ensure that successful job preparation is available in Palm Beach County.

Florida is a right-to-work state, as stipulated in the state's constitution.  Only six other states provide its residents this opportunity.
