Q4-17

Please note that Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 refer to the first, second, third, and fourth quarters of the Fiscal Year. The City’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1st – September 30th and is denoted by FY.

Employment growth is an important aspect of the City’s economic advancement—the more jobs that come to this community, the more likely it is that people will want to live, work, and play in Sugar Land. Because of the relocation of ABM Industries’ corporate shared services headquarters to Sugar Land and the expansion of Team Industrial Services’ corporate headquarters, the City exceeded its annual target of over 500 jobs for employment growth in the 1st quarter. Specifically, ABM Industries’ relocation created 390 new jobs in our community. Furthermore, Team Industrial Services’ expansion brought 113 new jobs. No additional new jobs were created in the 4th quarter. Therefore, 503 total jobs were created this fiscal year.
