Collin County, Texas (my client for 30+ years) is poaching talent from Dallas County!

The reported that “Collin County ranked No. 3 in the U.S. for attracting and developing talent, according to Emsi's 2020 Talent Attraction Scorecard. Dallas County ranked 555th, in large part because so many workers migrated out of the county -- with the largest number going to Collin.”  The February 12, 2021 report entitled “Dallas County’s talent problem: Collin, Denton and others are poaching workers” included these comments from Drew Repp (content manager at Emsi):

Texas may indeed lure many new workers and employers from high-cost states like California, New York and Illinois.

That doesn’t mean Dallas will get most of the upside.

Texas may win on its business climate, but companies can locate anywhere in the state and get those same benefits,

They don’t have to go to Dallas County.

It can be Denton or Collin or any others.

I’m glad that Collin County is doing so well in the US!
