Where will job growth
come from next?

Job growth is crucial to a strong economy — but challenges to employment, from globalization to automation, are increasing in markets worldwide. That’s why, at Goldman Sachs, we focus our impact investments on developments that stimulate job creation, and why we conduct frequent research to better understand the complex, rapidly changing jobs picture.

10,000 Small Businesses, for example, helps to empower entrepreneurs who are critical to driving innovation, dynamism and job growth in the economy. This Goldman Sachs program, which provides access to education, capital and business support services, has reached more than 7,300 small business owners across the U.S. and U.K. through the end of 2016. Working with a network of more than 100 local and national partners, we have deployed nearly $150 million in loans and provided important networking opportunities, all while enhancing business skills. 10,000 Small Businesses program graduates consistently increase revenues and create new jobs at rates that outperform the broader economy.

Revitalizing underserved communities is another important driver of job creation, particularly through projects that address multiple community development challenges by combining commercial, residential and community facilities. Since 2001, our Urban Investment Group (UIG) has committed more than $5 billion of capital in communities throughout the U.S. These investments have created more than 6 million square feet of commercial, retail and industrial space and thousands of construction jobs, anchoring economic activity and job creation in places where they are needed most.

In 2016, we studied long-term trends and their impact on jobs. Of particular interest has been the rise of industrial automation, its effects on long-term job creation and ways society might respond by rethinking the world of work.

10,000 SMALL
BUSINESSES
UPDATE

2016 reports released from lead 10,000 Small Businesses academic partners in the U.S. and U.K. quantified the impact of the program in those regions. Among other findings, nearly half of participants in the U.S. report creating net new jobs within six months, and U.K. participants boost employment an average of 31 percent annually.

INVESTING IN NEWARK

Since 2010, our Urban Investment Group has been the largest investor in local economic development projects in the city of Newark, NJ. One recent notable investment is the transformation of a landmark department store, which sat vacant for decades, into a vibrant mix of retail, community and residential spaces.
