As the fastest growing community in the United States (U.S. Census 2019), Buckeye has seen incredible growth in both local employees and commuters. Proximity to major transportation corridors are key factors in attracting existing residents. The City of Buckeye’s immediate regional workforce is 704,478* and employees living in and traveling to Buckeye will benefit from a reverse commute which eliminates the stress and time typically characteristic of other areas within Greater Phoenix. This affords Buckeye employers the ability to attract a high quality diverse workforce from throughout the Region.
