This Map Shows The Largest Employer In Every State

The above map, sent to us by Mike Simmons of Broadview Networks, shows the largest employer in every state.

Broadview Networks used information from CareerOneStop, a database sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labour.

Interestingly, only two companies in the top 10 largest employers in America — IBM and Wal-Mart — appear as a state front-runner. And the map doesn’t feature other large companies, like UPS and McDonald’s, at all.

Instead, major state universities, like those in Alabama and Colorado, and innovative hospitals, like the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, employ the most residents in numerous states.

In some states, like Alabama, when companies tied for the most employees, Broadview Networks chose to represent only one on the map.
