Warner Robins is drawing the attention of creative people and as a result is creating more jobs.
President and CEO of Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce Ed Rodriguez says businesses in the city are becoming leaner and meaner.
"They're more likely to be experimental sometimes and think outside the box because you have to do that to succeed."
More technology-based companies are paving the way for a brighter future.
"We are now attracting more younger, vibrant adults here so our city has to conform to the needs of young adults," said Executive Director of the Warner Robins Redevelopmental Agency Gary Lee.
Residents of Warner Robins agree that education is key to a smarter, stronger workforce.
"Our biggest reason for moving here was because of the school systems," said Linda Avery.
Rodriguez says, "When you have a great and strong educational system and I don't just mean the great K through 12 schools we have in our region, but the great colleges and universities that's going to feed the workforce."
The average income and the percentage of creative jobs rank the city as one of the top ten destinations appealing to innovative working classes.
