The power of our economy grows when we engage our people and cultivate their innovative spirit.

- Housing that is affordable and addresses the diverse needs of our communities and the economic, social and age-related needs of our population
- Transportation options that are low-carbon and allow all workers access to high quality jobs
- Accessible, high quality health care and wellness programs
- Quality education and career transition programs that support a diversified and inclusive workforce that can address the dynamic needs of the marketplace
- Jobs that recognize the value of our people by paying a living wage and enabling them to be productive knowing their families are cared for and that they can be with them when they are needed
