W orkforce remains a top factor in site selection. Companies in the aerospace and defense industries are no exception. Ensuring an available skilled workforce, labor costs that fit a company’s profile, and myriad other aspects related to employees is paramount to site selection for aerospace and defense firms. With technology helping to improve site selection journeys across the board, data analytics is a significant tool in the search.
Jeff Troan, Managing Director at Vista Site Selection, an ancillary of Vorys, works with his team to employ a data analytics tool that assists aerospace clients to identify locations with the workforce demographics they require. His experience in the aerospace industry includes three decades at Lockheed Martin, and he brings this perspective to discussion. This data tool isn’t limited to aerospace; retail is another industry that finds value with this site selection technology.
Earlier this month at Business Facilities LiveXchange Emerging Industries in Columbus, OH, we spoke with Troan for a brief chat exploring the value of data analytics and site selection.
