Downtown Greenville and the home of future Unity Park.

Despite the challenges of 2020, Greenville workers remain confident about their job security, financial situation and career outlook amid the pandemic.

According to LinkedIn, Greenville is one of the 10 Most Confident Cities in the United States. Five southeastern cities made the top 10, a trend analysts attribute to their ability to attract people relocating from other parts of the country and their proximity to emerging logistics hubs.

Between July and September, more than 33,000 LinkedIn members from urban areas nationwide shared how they felt about their careers, investments, personal finances and more. LinkedIn’s Workforce Confidence Index uses a scale from -100 to +100 to reflect workers’ sentiments and expectations about the labor market. Confidence levels are +37 or better for the top 10 cities, exceeding the national average of +31.
