Many of the residents work in the agricultural sector, with dairy farming still forming a large part of the local economy. A number of residents also commute to work in factories in nearby Switzerland.
Glère hosts a 17th-century church, a post office, two restaurants, and a bar. The village, with its location on the tranquil Doubs River, is a perennial favorite with fishermen and campers.
In the early 1990s, Roger Macabrey, a recipient of the croix de guerre for his actions during World War II and a former mayor of Glère, served on the general council of Doubs department, where he promoted initiatives to attract more tourists to the region.
