We like to think of Fremont as a happy place.
And this news really makes us want to put our dancing shoes on.

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.
