Louisville is fighting what they call a brain-drain. Greater Louisville Inc. works to bring talent into Louisville from other places. They also work to bring back locals who may have left the area. Their website outlines what makes Louisville such a great place to work.

Their core demographic is 24 to 53-year-olds who may be looking for jobs or looking to change to a new one.
“This is about retention," GLI CEO Kent Oyler said. "It’s talent attraction and retention, and we want to retain all the educated people and the workforce that we can to keep them here. We lose people to competitor cities every day. We also need to attract more than our fair share of people to keep our openings here so to keep it local.”
As Hoosiers await the deal that would retain 1,000 jobs in Indianapolis, Louisville is looking to fill 30,000 jobs locally, 8,000 of which require college degrees.
