A Strong Talent Pipeline

Virginia stands out as an attractive location for headquarters operations because of its strong corporate talent pipeline. The Commonwealth offers companies immediate access to a diverse and well-educated workforce, and decades of strategic decisions have endowed the Commonwealth with nationally recognized K-12 and higher education systems that will continue to provide Virginia-based headquarters operations with qualified talent. In fact, more than 60% of Virginia graduates remain in-state after graduation.
