Business Breakfast
The Town Council endeavours to stay in close contact with local businesses. Regular breakfast meeting exchanges between the Town Council and the top managers of companies in Baar have proven to be most effective.

Hard working and efficient trade and industry
Agriculture, trade and small enterprises are as vital to the local economy as our international industrial/trading concerns. Although agriculture (81 farms) is not the first activity in purely economic terms, its contribution to the carefully tended environment makes it of considerable importance.

Small and middle sized companies are the major job generators of our community. Their expertise and capacity for innovation are our driving economic force.

Dynamic job market – more and more commuters
The 2000 census turned out that the number of commuters is quite high, although even more commuters come here than leave Baar to work elsewhere. Most employees commute between Baar and other communities in the Canton of Zug, Lucerne or Zurich.

According to the 2008 survey 18,059 people worked in Baar while Baar had 21,524 inhabitants. It is evident in these figures that Baar benefits from an excellent offer of jobs. Obviously mobility also plays a major role. It is becoming ever rarer to work and live in the same place.
