Site Selection magazine has named DXC Technology’s 2,000-job announcement in New Orleans as one of the Top 20 Economic Development Deals in North America for 2017. Site Selection developed its ranking “based on job creation, economic impact, competition for the project and significance to their chosen regions.”
Writes Site Selection: “Representing what state leaders call Louisiana’s largest tech project to date, this Digital Transformation Center from the IT services firm will hook into the talent pipeline via a higher education initiative that recalls similar programs put into place for such companies as IBM and EA…Company officials identified New Orleans as a talent-laden, culturally diverse, high quality-of-life city. DXC will hire 300 during 2018, then ramp up to 2,000 jobs over five years and an annual payroll exceeding $133 million by 2025. The LSU Economics & Policy Research Group estimates the DXC Technology project will translate to $64.3 million in new Louisiana taxes, $868.4 million in new Louisiana earnings and total economic output of $3.2 billion from 2018 through 2025.”
