Labor analytics

Due to the labor shortage, it is critical to assess labor availability and cost when any company is looking to expand existing, add new, or consolidate existing facilities.

Baker Tilly’s site selection and location strategies team can guide companies through a site suitability analysis, including a nationwide site review and comparison on key labor metrics. Our labor analytics solution identifies optimal regions for your project based on employment numbers, wages and even commuting patterns.
