America’s Top States for Business Workers are the new weapon in the battle for business Workforce accounts for nearly 17% of all selling points by states, CNBC analysis shows. For the first time since CNBC began keeping track in 2007, workforce is the attribute most frequently cited by states in their efforts to attract business. Workforce accounts for nearly 17 percent of all selling points mentioned, according to the latest CNBC analysis, compared to just 12 percent in 2013. By contrast, the cost of doing business, which in the past has always been the top selling point, falls to 14 percent of the mentions this year, tied with Infrastructure for second place. Business costs accounted for 17 percent of the mentions in the previous analysis. Asked to rank 10 factors in deciding where to locate or expand facilities, 53 percent of CNBC Global CFO Council respondents ranked workforce No. 1. No other factor came close. The new emphasis on workforce means changes in this year's Top States for Business study, where we score all 50 states in 10 categories of competitiveness. Under our 2015 methodology, workforce will carry the most weight in this year's study, accounting for 400 of the possible 2,500 points across our 10 categories.
