When a new company locates in the region, they hire Richmonders for newly created jobs and recruit new talent to the area. New companies also select a property to lease or purchase – immediately impacting real estate brokers, bankers, lawyers and construction workers. Employees are then able to purchase cars and houses and spend their new income on restaurants, retail, healthcare and more.
With your help, the Greater Richmond Partnership will continue to make the region an ideal business location.
