KPMG Chooses Orlando for its Global Training Center
KPMG chose Orlando for its $430 million global learning, development and innovation facility. KPMG has already broken ground on its 55-acre, 800,000-square-foot operation in Lake Nona. This is the firm's lastest capital investment project ever. Set to open in 2019, the project began roughly two years ago when KPMG listed Orlando among 49 cities as possible locations before short-listing the list to nine communities. Eventually, Orlando bested Dallas, Texas, for the location.

ADP Brings 1,600 Jobs to Orlando
ADP, the global provider of cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, chose Orlando as the location for its new regional office in 2016 after executives visited the region numerous times to meet with local executives and talent providers. The new office, located in the city of Maitland, will create up to 1,600 new jobs within the next five years and create a capital investment of $28 million.

Ultimately, ADP was impressed with the Orlando region's strong demographics, workforce and talent pipeline. The company focuses on hiring recent graduates with 4-year degrees and the University of Central Florida's annual graduating class of more than 24,000 among its 63,000 students overall was certainly a draw. Within 100 miles of Orlando, there are more than 500,000 higher education students enrolled, allowing companies to recruit from a broad base of top tier colleges and universities.
