The 2017 FORA Jobs Survey report summarizes and compares 2015 and 2017 Jobs Survey outcomes as success metrics for Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) economic recovery goals. Primary and secondary research were used including online business searches, email surveys, and in-person/phone communications. The survey area was limited to the former Fort Ord boundary, and reported results include existing and near-term projected full-time (FT) and part-time (PT) positions. Survey results will be incorporated in FORA’s Annual Report as directed by the Base Reuse Plan (BRP) Context and Framework (126.96.36.199 (c), pg. 208).
112 employers and 4958 positions were identified within the former Fort Ord boundary, representing a 21% (873 jobs) increase in total jobs since 2015, with majority being part-time positions. Business types on the former Fort Ord include: professional services (47%); retail/food service (22%); education related (12%); recreation (7%); and military (7%). Military-related account for the largest employment group, followed by education-related, professional, retail and recreation. These results represent an overall 28% progress towards the 18,000 BRP post-Fort Ord jobs target.
