60% of working adults in the Tri-Valley have a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 46% for the Bay Area as a whole. Worker productivity (GDP/worker) is also among the highest in the nation, outpacing Austin, Boston, Portland, and Raleigh-Durham. (Source: Tri-Valley Rising 2018)

Economic Growth

The Tri-Valley is growing faster than San Francisco, Silicon Valley, California, and the US (Tri-Valley Rising 2018) thanks to the expanding tech, life sciences, and manufacturing industries.

Many business leaders describe the region’s natural beauty, tight-knit communities, top-notch schools, and charming downtowns as key reasons behind their decision to do business in the Tri-Valley.

The Tri-Valley also offers opportunities for work-life balance. People who both live and work in the Tri-Valley often have short commutes, which helps maximize the time they can spend with their families.

Because Tri-Valley is home to so many families with children, business leaders have noted that the region’s workplace culture is supportive of policies like flexible scheduling that allow people to participate in their children’s lives and in their communities.
