Alright, that headline might be a stretch, as Forbes didn’t directly say TiER1 was relaxing. However, they did just release their list of America’s most relaxed cities, and the Cincinnati metro area was ranked 7th! Being that TiER1 is in the region, and we were just named one of the best places to work, I took some creative liberty in connecting the dots.
So what exactly constitutes a relaxing city? According to Forbes, it’s areas with lower stress, which they say are indicated by things like low unemployment, short commutes, and good health care. I’d say Cincinnati certainly has all of those, and more great characteristics. I particularly enjoy my short commute to work (less than 10 min door to door). As far as employment goes, TiER1 is doing its part to create jobs in the region, and we even have some positions open now! Last but certainly not least, health care in the region is exceptional as well. Take Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, which is routinely ranked among the top 10 children’s hospitals in the country. It’s no coincidence that they’re a client of ours either, as great organizations like Cincinnati Children’s and TiER1 see the value in working together.
