The Largest Employers in Each State: MAP

Largest Employers in Each State MAP

We at Broadview Networks are not only dedicated hosted phone providers, we’re also enthusiasts of all things business.  Whether we’re watching Bill Gates give a TED talk or reading about the oil boom in North Dakota, we love it all.  An article from last year looking at the largest employers in America sparked our interest on the topic and we decided to take a deeper look.  Wal-Mart has been on the top of that list for a couple years with a total workforce of nearly 2.2 million people, but were they the largest employers in each individual state?  Using CareerOneStop, a database sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, we researched who the largest employers in each state were.  The results were very surprising with only 2 companies from the Top 10 Largest Employers in America were represented, in IBM and Wal-Mart.  There were some shocking exclusions as well, with no McDonald’s, Yum! Brands, or UPS on the list.  Instead, we saw quite a few major state universities, health systems/hospitals, and military bases.  To make it more visual, we decided to create a map with each state as the company’s logo.  Take a look and let us know what you think, are you shocked about what the largest company in your state is?
