Nashville’s Livability is an Economic Development Asset

According to a recent blog on BusinessClimate.com, “People are drawn to places where they can visualize themselves living and working and doing it better than anywhere else.” Livability is a factor with the power to either make or break a region, its companies and their employees. So what makes Nashville such a great region for a relocating talent and businesses? Three key reasons are Nashville’s talent attraction, anchor points and quality of life.

The skyline view of Downtown Nashville from Love Circle, the most beautiful street in Nashville according to Angela Wright of The Lipman Group Sotheby's International Realty.

As Music City, Nashville naturally attracts the creative class that includes musicians and performers. Because the Nashville area’s economy is among the most diverse of that in any U.S. region, the region also continues to attract high-quality workers in all business sectors. Nashville supports many innovative and aggressive local programs to recruit workers to Middle Tennessee. Chamber-led workforce initiatives include programming targeted to young professionals, support of public education and higher education, the InternNashville program, an interactive CD-ROM, partnerships to support HR professionals and targeted industry worker attraction and retention.

According to BusinessClimate.com’s blog, “The more hospitals, colleges and universities in a city, the better the workforce and the higher the level of innovation and business development due to research and technology initiatives.” Nashville’s health care industry has a huge national and international impact. It impacts the economy each year by bringing in $30 billion and creating 210,000 jobs. Aside from health care, Nashville has numerous higher-education institutions. Nashville boasts 18 colleges and universities, and 100,000 college students. Sixty percent of the annual graduates remain in Nashville, and these educated workers help form the backbone of our workforce.

Quality of life is a primary reason so many relocate to Nashville. (As we write this, it is 54 degrees and sunny in January.) The region features all four seasons, and the average temperature ranges from 49 in the winter, to 89 in the summer time. To take advantage of beautiful days, people can flock to Nashville’s 92 public parks, 69 miles of greenways, six state and national parks, two recreational lakes, 56 public and private golf courses and many other recreational places. More nationally recognized is Nashville’s art scene. The thirst for good music is easily quenched with Nashville’s 124 performance venues, 79 live music houses, 49 performing arts halls, and more than 120,000 seats in a wide array of entertainment space. Nashville has its own opera, ballet, symphony, children’s theater, art galleries and almost anything someone could want in the arts. As for sports, Nashville is home to two major-league teams: the NFL’s Tennessee Titans and the NHL’s Nashville Predators.

Talent development and quality of place/livability are key strategic drivers of the Chamber’s Partnership 2020 economic development strategy. The amenities of our great city attract people – which, in turn, attracts strong companies and creates an ideal environment for businesses to grow and prosper.

Top 10 US places with a net influx of movers includes Tennessee

10 US places with a net influx of movers includes Tennessee

Click on the image to view Atlas Van Lines' 2011 annual migration patterns report.

Only Washington, D.C., and nine states — primarily in the Southwest and Mid-Atlantic regions — were labeled “inbound” by receiving a net influx (over 55 percent) of Atlas moves in 2011, according to Atlas Van Lines’ 2011 annual migration patterns report, released this month. Atlas has tracked annual Atlas shipment patterns for Canada and the U.S., by state, since 1993.

Those states falling between 55 percent net influx and outgoing moves were labeled “balanced”; those above that percentage, either incoming or outgoing, were labeled “inbound” or “outbound,” respectively.

Washington, D.C., had the highest percentage net influx of Atlas shipments in 2011, continuing its six-year run at the top — 69 percent of its 856 Atlas shipments in 2011 were inbound. North Carolina, at a 61 percent net increase, was second highest in the region, followed by Rhode Island at 60 percent, Tennessee at 58 percent and Virginia at 56 percent.

The “inbound” U.S. states (and district), listed alphabetically, are:

  • Alaska
  • Maryland
  • New Mexico
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Rhode Island
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington, D.C.

Ohio, continued its consecutive nine-year bleed of net out-of-state moves, at 60 percent net outgoing shipments. The Midwest experienced the greatest regional loss in the report. The Rust Belt states of West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin joined Ohio on the outbound list.

All of Canada’s provinces, except for New Labrador and New Brunswick, were categorized as “outbound.”

The “outbound” states, listed alphabetically, are:

  • Connecticut
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Nebraska
  • New Jersey
  • New York
