Throughout 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shift in employees working from home leading to “Zoom towns”- cities that are booming as remote work becomes more popular, according to a recent study completed by RetailMeNot. The City of Centennial ranks #8 as “One of the Country’s Best Cities for Remote Workers” list. The methodology to create this list identified the best cities for remote workers based on three factors: community and safety, housing and living costs and health and weather. Only cities with at least 100,000 were included in the analysis and only one city per metropolitan area was on the final list of cities. The City of Centennial has a population of more than 110,000 residents and is consistently recognized as one of the safest cities in Colorado.

Centennial’s rankings for this particular list were:

  • Overall work-from-home score: 86.21
  • Community & safety: 90.13
  • Housing & living costs: 79.52
  • Health & weather: 88.98
  • Metro area: Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO

“This year has been like no other and for many working from home is now the norm. As much as I hope we can get back to working in person it is exciting to see our City on this list,” says Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “Thank you to our partners who maintain the infrastructure needs of our workforce and of course to our citizens for doing what they can to stay safe.”
