Denver Takes Top Spot in RCLCO’s STEM Job Growth Index
Denver tops this year’s ranking in RCLCO’s annual STEM Job Growth Index. Published annually in partnership with office investment management firm CapRidge Partners, the STEMdex tracks and projects STEM job growth trends across the country by analyzing the economies of the largest metropolitan areas to understand which regions are attracting the jobs and employees of the future.
“While it remains far too early to fully assess how the COVID-19 pandemic and any current or future variants will continue to impact our daily lives, another year of data has given us increased confidence in the growth prospects for STEM jobs, particularly in the regions highlighted by the 2021 STEMdex,” said Gregg Logan, managing director of RCLCO.
In the latest 10-year industry employment projections released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, published in September with projections through 2030, higher than average employment growth, particularly for STEM jobs, is forecast.
