If you’re in the U.S. and looking to hire outside of traditional talent hubs like New York and Los Angeles, you’re in luck. A new report confirms what seems to be a growing trend: skilled workers are fleeing the high cost of living found in cities like Seattle and Washington, D.C. for more affordable options like Atlanta, Charleston, Dallas, and Jacksonville — not to mention Twiggs County, GA and Moore County, TN. The upshot? Great talent is everywhere.

Meanwhile, there’s also compelling news for anyone who’s looking to justify an argument for less emails and a slimmer inbox. It turns out sending unnecessary emails is not only an annoyance for readers, but also terrible for the environment.
