The Inland Empire region of California is experiencing significant job growth, with its largest cities, Riverside, Ontario, and San Bernardino, leading the way. Online job advertisements suggest a high demand for workers in various fields, including retail sales, healthcare, and retail sales management.

The region’s top employers are concentrated in healthcare, education, and retail, with a strong presence from Loma Linda University Health, University of CA, Riverside, and Walmart/Sam’s.

Warehouse Market is Still the Largest

The Inland Empire region of California has become a hub for warehousing and logistics, thanks to its strategic location near major transportation routes. The region’s warehouse market has increased in recent years, with an estimated one Billion square feet of warehouse space.

This growth has created significant employment opportunities, with the logistics and transportation sector accounting for approximately 150,000 jobs in the region annually. As the demand for e-commerce and same-day delivery continues to grow, the Inland Empire’s warehouse market is poised for further expansion and job growth in the coming years.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

The warehouse sector has played a vital role in Inland Empire’s job growth. However, it has created environmental concerns as well. The Inland Empire is the “hottest warehouse market in the world,” according to The Economist magazine.

Professor Susan Phillips has expressed concerns about the environmental impact of warehouse expansion, while John Husing of the Inland Empire Economic Partnership has dismissed these concerns.

The booming warehouse business in the Inland Empire has led to job growth and a faster recovery to pre-pandemic employment levels compared to California and the nation.
