Balanced Life

Work and Life Balanced.

Texans are known for being hard workers and for knowing how to relax after a job well done. Others have taken notice, which is a large factor in the continuing talent relocation to Texas from other U.S. cities. In fact, since 2010, Texas has added 12.6 percent more residents.

Why? There are a lot of factors in play when it comes to what puts Texas on top. Historically, people have been coming to Texas since the 19th Century in search of a more cost-effective location to live while being able to find good work. This still holds true today.

Texas boasts low taxes, including no personal income tax, and low-cost housing options in urban and rural areas. Median home values in Texas were 32 percent less than the rest of the U.S. from 2009 to 2013 according to U.S. Census Bureau.

Texans enjoy their savings at the state’s many vibrant recreational destinations throughout our communities. From BBQ and Tex-Mex, to our wines, spirits and beers, and world-class museums and lifestyle brand hotspots, to championship sports teams and our famous live music, there’s a variety of entertainment to indulge in with your free time and cost-savings.

Need to unplug? Escape to Texas’ 90+ state parks, 191,000 miles of rivers and streams, 624 miles of coastline, or 70+ working ranches. The stars are night really are bigger and brighter.

Few states rival what Texas and our communities bring to the table for employers and their ability to attract talent, which is probably why Forbes recently named Texas the best state in the nation for talent attraction.
