Wollongong’s CBD now employs more than 26,000 people and is continuing to attract a range of firms from Accounting, Legal, Architectural, Engineering, Marketing, Business Consulting and Shared Services. Firms are attracted by lower operating costs, the level of amenity and lifestyle on offer in Wollongong and access to a large talent pool of high-quality staff.
“You’ve got the lower costs, you’ve got the lower overheads as well. We find that it’s higher retention rates of staff, we find that there’s a good work/life balance for the team, so we don’t seem to have the stress issues that the city life puts on people.”
