Burien’s Workforce is Skilled & Diverse
Burien enjoys a talented, young, multilingual workforce with expertise in health care, retail, restaurants, manufacturing, education, and aerospace. A minority-majority city, 33 percent of Burien citizens can speak a language other than English, and students in Burien’s Highline Public School district speak more than 100 languages at home. This creates expansive opportunities for businesses looking to serve a diverse customer base, and especially those doing business internationally.
Enterprising & Creative
The diverse cultural experiences of Burien’s workforce have created a rich and collaborative environment for creatives and entrepreneurs. This is the foundation of Burien’s foodie culture but also sets the stage for innovation in other industries. Makers and small-scale manufacturers have found the extra space they need in Burien that allows them the room to experiment. When combined with a diverse, creative workforce and a location only minutes away from the fastest-growing region and airport in the country, the sky's the limit.
