JOBS

Creating and attracting new jobs to the Topeka/Shawnee County area is critical to maintain our quality of life and attract young professionals to our area. Every day the staff at the Chamber and GO Topeka wake up and strive to improve the business climate by developing a quality of life that’s attractive and helping companies grow jobs or bring jobs to our community.

Companies like The Home Depot and Target have established distribution centers; organizations like Security Benefit have added services and products for their clients and manufacturers like Frito-Lay, US Foods, Del Monte and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company continue to add jobs and new product lines. Bioscience endeavors throughout the region continue to expand for both humans and animals, led by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, the manufacturer of Science Diet pet products headquartered in downtown Topeka. Two medical centers continue to grow and add jobs as their markets expand further into northeast Kansas.

The job outlook is good in Topeka. More jobs will come to the Topeka area in the near future as companies realize they can be both productive and profitable.
