Atlanta has: good mobility (our airport); low government employment rates (we're not burdening our deficit by paying a lot of public workers); and a population that's slightly younger and more educated than the national average (average age in Atlanta is 34 with 88% of the population having a high school diploma or greater). And all that adds up to strong prospects for  future growth, says Boston Consulting Group's Center for Sensing & Mining the Future director Alison Sanders (left). She was one of three panelists at the Hines Portfolio Speaker Series held at 1180 Peachtree last week.

As you can see, a good-sized crowd packed the room for the latest in the speaker series, focused this time on how multiple generations are fitting into the modern workplace. Alison was joined by Junior Achievement of Georgia president Jack Harris, and BCG's Michael Deimler. With metro Atlanta poised to be the  sixth largest metro area in the US by 2020, Alison says that the population of older residents is increasing due to longer life spans and decreased fertility  rates, and there will be further growth of black and Hispanic communities.
