A winning combination of a diverse and growing economy that offers a wealth of career opportunities coupled with an abundance of quality of life advantages are drawing talent to Tennessee.
A favorable tax structure, lower cost of living, access to career opportunities, abundant outdoor opportunities and an authentic arts and music scene are luring talent — particularly young professionals — to the Volunteer State.
“Research shows that this generation is heavily focused on experiences as opposed to material possessions, and Tennessee is positioned so well for that,” says Dana Glenn, president of PEAK — Kingsport Young Professionals. “From Memphis to Nashville to Bristol, music is ingrained in our state’s culture. It’s easy to catch a show or attend a festival here, and there are also 56 state parks.”
