How We Help

We provide actionable data and consulting to help you understand and communicate your economic and workforce strengths, respond to business inquiries, benchmark your region against your peers, and attract and retain skilled talent.

Labor Market Analytics

To help your community prosper, you have to understand what sets it apart. Emsi Developer, our labor and economic data platform, allows you to quickly determine target industries, spot supply chain gaps, and analyze your workforce by where they work and live.

Quickly respond to site selectors, focus your business attraction and retention efforts, and develop comprehensive strategic plans—all with one data platform.


Sometimes you need to go deeper on your community and workforce. That’s why we’re more than a software company.

Our consultants and data scientists help EDOs and their regional partners with workforce and labor shed studies, labor market gap analyses, customized input-output modeling, and industry supply chain and cluster reports.

Workforce Analysis Beyond SOC Codes

Site selectors and businesses want more detailed workforce data than ever. To overcome the limitations of standard occupation data that uses SOC codes, we’ve compiled a database of 65 million online professional profiles in the US to allow you to glean deeper insights on your available workforce.

With Workforce Insight, you can improve your site selection response, analyze your region’s alumni, and take talent attraction and retention to another level.
