Over half a million potential employees exist within reasonable commuting distance of the city. Our workforce is younger than the national average and better educated. Utah has the fourth highest percentage of high school graduates and the 11th highest percentage of college graduates in the nation.
Taylorsville's workforce will include 1,500 new workers by the end of this year when move-in of the new multi-agency State Office Building at 4315 S. 2700 West is complete. The employees will move into the renovated facility on the former American Express campus in phases, starting with 400 employees who relocated from Capitol Hill at the end of January.
The new space was needed because the current 60-year-old state office building near the Capitol is aging and vulnerable to earthquakes and because the complex suffers from parking shortages. The plan is to demolish the old building in 2021.
