Amazon's HQ2 Finalists:

How do they rank by cost of living vs Seattle? [Infographic]

Like Comment

Amazon has narrowed its list of HQ2 candidates to twenty cities. Now that the field of candidates has narrowed, how will they quantify which city is best suited for their needs? Will they compare these cities in terms of cost of living? Will Amazon consider how the costs of housing, goods and services and taxes may affect its ability to attract and retain critical talent?

Recruiting and retaining critical talent is a vital element of Amazon’s – and any company’s - success.

Potential employees are keen to know how far their paycheck will stretch, and measuring how key cost considerations – income taxes, goods and services, and housing – affect potential purchase power in each city reveals the attractiveness of these locations from an employee’s viewpoint.
