Employees Pic 

Louisville is home to many great companies and businesses. With over 14,000 jobs within the community, our workforce specializes in growing and diverse industries. Those industries include: advanced manufacturing, bioscience, health and wellness, aerospace, outdoor recreation and professional services.

Our businesses benefit from a highly educated workforce. Over 70% of Louisville's adult population has a bachelor's degree, and of those, half have an advanced degree. Our residents require a well-balanced lifestyle, which Louisville's location and amenities deliver. This assists in retaining great employees. 

We know every employee cannot live within City limits, so our elected leaders and partners work hard to provide great access to alternative modes of transportation to commute to and from work. The Regional Transportation District (RTD) operates several local and regional transit routes to provide stress-free commuting throughout the area. Louisville has excellent bicycle infrastructure to allow for safe and convenient bike routes to all our commercial and industrial areas.
