Fremont Named 10th Happiest Mid-Sized City in America

Submitted By City of Fremont

We like to think of Fremont as a happy place.

And this news really makes us want to put our dancing shoes on.

According to a recent survey by CareerBliss, Fremont ranks in the Top 10 happiest mid-sized cities in America. [CareerBliss is an online ÒCareer CommunityÓ]

Now, you might be wondering how one measures happiness.

CareerBliss surveyed thousands of workers around the country, measuring various factors, including employeesÕ relationships with co-workers and bosses, work environment, job resources, compensation, company culture, and opportunities for growth.

The City of Fremont is proud to be home to a diversified economy among several sectors including advancing manufacturing, semiconductors and cleantech. While the high-tech companies tend to get the spotlight, our thriving small business community Ð ranging from mom-and-pops to startups Ð are central to the cityÕs economic future and we champion their success. With benefits like prime accessibility to BART, startup tax incentives, and a brand new Downtown on the rise, itÕs no wonder our Fremont workforce has a little pep in their step.

WeÕve got a world-class workforce thatÕs not just successful, but also supremely happy Ð and that gives us a reason to smile.
