Employer & Recruiter Resources
An extensive array of workforce data is available on this website, including comparisons for city-by-city cost of living. In addition, relevant data on Tulsa’s regional labor force, employment rates, wages, union information and workers’ comp is available in the Tulsa Business Location Data publication.
To ensure the region is positioned to address its future workforce needs, the Tulsa Regional Chamber commissioned a 16-week, 11-county labor study by Site Selection Group in 2017. Key components of the assessment reviewed commute times; underemployment; the workforce pipeline and future demand; education and industry gap analysis; and wage and benefits.
