According to EMSI, Kansas is forecasted to outperform U.S. growth rates in nearly all subsectors of professional and technical services, with areas of particular strength in corporate headquarters and business support services.
Kansas’ strong talent pipeline and growing computer services industries will help support and sustain digitally enabled business processes and automation in the state. And, with high concentrations of food processing, agriculture and aerospace – all highly susceptible to automation – the opportunity for technology and consulting services firms specialized to those areas is great.

A Place for Mom, the largest senior care referral service in North America, chose Kansas as the home of its new office in early 2020. The Overland Park location will be the home to several jobs that are core to the company’s business operations including managerial talent, finance and human resources professionals, engineers and customer service associates.
