DFW’s Top 10 Locations for Attracting, Retaining Talent

A lot of growing technology companies I talk to experience challenges related to recruitment and retention of employees, as well as maintaining flexibility on their office leases. As the Dallas lead for Cushman & Wakefield’s Emerging Technology Advisory Group, my team partners with companies on their workplace strategy and methods for aligning their business needs with the optimal real estate solution.

Now more than ever, HR departments are getting involved in site selection for a company’s future headquarters. Real estate decision making has evolved over the last few years to companies being laser focused on encouraging employee engagement and building spaces that allow companies to show off their branding and culture.

In light of the tightest job market in history, Dallas-area tenants have been flocking to Class A space in the submarkets of Addison/Legacy/Frisco, Las Colinas and Uptown to win the war for talent. And it’s no wonder: These areas offer a central location, combined with amenities and conveniences that promise to help attract and retain the best possible employees.

Top 10 Dallas’ Hot Spots

Right now, ten Dallas-area hot spots continually draw the most attention from tech companies seeking a property that will help attract and retain talent while also representing their culture and brand. The list below highlights what I believe are the top 10 live, work, play developments in DFW.
