To paraphrase Charles Dickens: “It is the best of times, it is the worst of times ... it is the season of light, it is the season of darkness.” When we began the process to research the 2020 Book of Lists, our economy was strong. Suburban real estate was seeing a solid uptick in occupancies, unemployment was at record lows, local conven-

tough times. That is why we believe the 2020 Book of Lists is a key resource for local busi- nesses looking for help during these times. Our book, unlike others, has always been presented as a directory of local resources that can help a local busi- ness owner or entrepreneur in any stage of life — from getting started to growing and networking. We have more than 1,000 suburban businesses listed that can help with whatever needs you have. That is even more important today, as you can find banks and SBA loan lenders, legal or accounting help, or even marketing and community sup- port through PR firms, chambers of commerce, business associations, or even local economic development departments. I want to thank our research team of Chris Gerke, Norrine Twohey, Luke Zurawski, Susan Klovstad and Alaine Kiesling for their tireless work in updating and researching the infor- mation in this guide. Their countless hours of work go to the heart of our mission. I also want to thank our title sponsor Porte Brown Accountants and Advi- sors, our Chapter Sponsors Wintrust Commercial Banking and College of DuPage, and all the advertisers in this publication for their continued trust and support of the Book of List These are trying times. But we will get through this together, and will be #SuburbanBusinessStrong as a result. Stay safe and healthy, and thank you for making the Daily Herald Business Ledger your local business resource.

The pandemic has, in an incredibly short period, shut down our economic engine, as nonessential businesses have been forced to close, the hospi- tality industry deals with issues from convention cancellations to restau- rants not providing dining room ser- vice, and employers from every aspect of life adjusting to let employees work fromhome. The pandemic has hit the suburban economy like nothing else in recent memory, and as of this writing, no one knows when we will return to a sense of normalcy. But as we stare into this season of darkness, we as a business commu- nity must also realize that our season of light will eventually arrive. And we, as a community, will make that happen. No matter how big a business or what your business does, we must work together — through mutual sup- port and networking — to make sure our communities remain economi- cally vibrant. We must be a resource to one another to make it through the

Metropolitan Chicago is home to a well-educated, talented, and diverse workforce of more than 5millionworkers.This workforce keeps our economy thriving and indicates that the region remains an attractive and affordable place to live, play, and work. However, new data show that the region still has work to do to ensure all of our residents can contribute to and benefit from the regional economy. Efforts at the local and state level over the last year have begun to address some of the fiscal and transportation challenges that have troubled the Chicago region. These steps can be expected to bolster the region’s livability and begin to improve access to high-quality employment and training opportu- nities. Other challenges remain, including a narrowing economic base, an aging workforce, stagnant population growth, and persistent racial and economic disparities. If we tackle these challenges head-on, metropolitan Chicago can harness its economic assets and reinforce its posi- tion as a global center for business and prosperity. Regional economic and workforce trends

Chicago’s workforce is well-educated and diverse

Industries choose to invest and operate in metropolitan Chicago in part to access the skills and ingenu- ity of the region’s workers. To remain competitive, we need to better lever- age our full human capital by improv- ing job and training opportunities for our skilled and increasingly diverse workforce. Nearly half of the region’s working age population has an asso- ciate’s degree or higher, includ- ing more than 2.2 million residents with a bachelor’s degree. These sta- tistics place our region on par with the nation’s other large metros. The region’s workforce is also becom- ing more diverse, largely due to the growing share of Hispanic and Asian-American workers. Research by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleve- land and others shows that this diversity drives regional productiv- ity because diverse talent pools can develop more innovative ideas and implement those ideas more readily. This dynamic labor market also makes our region a destination for talent from around the world. The region’s 1.1 million foreign-born res- idents, representing 22 percent of the region’s total labor force, are a sig- nificant contributor to regional pros- perity. Historically, foreign-born res- idents entering the region were more likely than native-born residents

to be employed in service, produc- tion, transportation, and construc- tion occupations. However, a larger share of today’s new foreign-born workers—roughly 41.8 percent

– is working in management, busi- ness, science, arts, and sales occu- pations which often require higher levels of education or training. Fif- ty-four percent of the international

immigrants who entered the region after 2010 have attained at least a bachelor’s degree, 22 percentage points higher than those who entered the region in the decade prior.

Recent demographic trends suggest the region is facing challenges to sustaining a robust and skilled workforce. These trends include stagnant popula- tion growth, an aging workforce, and unprecedented outmigration among the region’s black population. These forces are closely related and often reinforc- ing, as economic shifts interact with existing racial inequality. In metropolitan Chicago, only one in five Hispanic adults has achieved an associate’s degree or higher, and a black household typically earns just $0.47 for every $1.00 in income that a white house- hold earns. the urban core, the region’s black residents—who are primarily concentrated on Chicago’s West and South Sides, as well as south suburban Cook County—are moving out of the City. These shifts reflect the national trend of black residents leaving northern cities and regions to live in growing south- ern metros, as well as unique circumstances in the region. For example, the Chicago metropolitan area has the highest unemployment rate amongst African Americans of the 25 largest metropolitan regions in the country. Continued on Page 7 Our workforce is changing, revealing uneven outcomes by race The Chicago region has lost residents for four consecutive years, with declines concentrated in the city of Chicago’s South Side and in some subur- ban communities. While small compared with the region’s overall population count, this loss stands in contrast to population gains elsewhere in the nation. These trends are starkest for the region’s black population. In total, metropolitan Chicago has expe- rienced a net loss of black residents every year since at least 2005, although it has attracted higher income black residents. As white residents move back to

Continued fromPage 6 Workforce trends are also shifting among age groups. Consistent with national indicators, labor force par- ticipation among young adults ages 16-24 is declining in the region while it increases among older adults.The Chi- cago region had around 20,000 fewer young workers ages 16-24 and 68,000 fewer middle-aged workers ages 25-54 in 2017 than 2010. However, it gained almost 200,000 more workers age 55 and older, in line with the nearly com- plete transition of the baby boomer generation into this age group. The region’s loss of prime-work- ing age workers is particularly con- cerning. The Chicago region is alone among select peer metropolitan areas in losing workers in this age cohort. If these trends continue, one of our primary economic assets—peo- ple—will also diminish, undermin- ing the region’s economic growth and competitiveness.

Our economy is growing, but is outpaced by peers

Fueled by a high quality labor force, the most diversified large metropol- itan economy in the country, and other economic assets, our region is growing in terms of real gross regional product (GRP, a measure of total out- put after adjusting for inflation) and employment. Since 2001, real GRP is up 18.8 percent and total employ- ment has increased 4.3 percent. This expansion continues to fuel commer- cial construction, and in turn sup- ports local demand for labor and increased spending in retail, health- care and personal services, home construction, and other sectors. However, global trends are inter- acting with regional issues to con- strain economic growth. In terms of both employment and output, the Chicago region is growing at less than half the rate of the U.S. overall and fall- ing further behind peer regions. These trends deepen concerns that techno- logical advances, industry shifts, and other issues could exacerbate exist- ing trends toward job polarization: the erosion of middle-income work as new growth concentrates at the bot- tom and top ends of the earning spec- trum. Middle-skill, middle-wage occu- pations – traditionally including many construction, production, or clerical roles – nowmake up 41 percent of total employment in the region, down from 56 percent in 1980. Businesses in the region’s traded sector—those firms that produce goods and services consumed

stagnant since. New growth has instead occurred in certain traded service industries like marketing, transportation, and logistics as well as in the local sector—businesses that sell to others in the region. These local-serving businesses are less likely to provide good employ- ment or advancement opportunity to workers without a college degree.

beyond the borders of the metro- politan Chicago—are our engines of economic growth. They bring busi- ness to the region that otherwise would not have occurred and pro- vide jobs that tend to pay more and have greater opportunities for career advancement. This sector is strug- gling to keep pace with peer regions and national trends as it undergoes

substantial shedding 144,000 jobs since 2001. Our region’s historic sources of growth, includ- ing many in manufacturing, have lost employment without being fully replaced. transition, Taken together, goods-produc- ing firms shed approximately 30 percent of their workforce between 2001 and 2010, and have remained

In the summer of 2019, the state of Illinois passed Rebuild Illinois, a $45 billion infrastructure funding pack- age that will invest in transportation, natural resources, affordable hous- ing, and other projects. Regional and state transportation agencies are planning for increased spending on transportation projects in the region to utilize new sources of revenue. If realized, these projects will improve reliability of the transportation sys- tem and ease access to employment centers for the region’s workforce. The combined 2020-2024 capital programs for the CTA, Metra, and Pace—the region’s three transporta- tion service operators—is 90 percent larger than previous years. Similarly, the Illinois Department of Transpor- tation’s six year budget for Northeast Illinois has more than doubled. Both the transit agencies and IDOT plan to invest heavily on facility and road maintenance in order to improve the state of transportation assets in the region, which has long been neglected. Our region has the assets to grow, New investments

including a talented workforce and extensive freight and transit infra- structure. New investments in the coming years will bolster these assets. However, in a changing global economy, fostering stronger growth will depend on concerted, cooperative efforts to improve

metropolitan Chicago’s competitive- ness as a place to launch, operate, and expand export-oriented busi- nesses. Doing so will mean going beyond traditional business attrac- tion and retention. Bolstering busi- nesses in high-priority industries with good, family-sustaining jobs

will require integrating a wide array of public policies and investments to enhance the region’s labor mar- ket. Together, the region can pursue smart strategies that better connect workers seeking to build a career and employers looking to build their workforce.
