Workforce - Ankeny Economic Development Corporation
Expanding business, investment, and employment opportunities


Ankeny is part of the larger Des Moines metropolitan area and pulls much of its labor from this pool. In addition, Ankeny’s location in the north section of the metropolitan area, our proximity to other large labor markets such as Ames, Marshalltown and Nevada, and our highway and interstate accessibility, allows us to pull workforce from other diverse markets.
The State of Iowa summarizes available labor through Laborshed Studies. These studies reflect the area with which a particular community draws its labor force.
