Major Employers

Good news for job seekers: This region’s diversified economy multiplies job and career choices, while thriving growth within each sector opens greater opportunity. Innovation is also key here, whether it’s a manufacturer like Eastman building a world-scale molecular recycling plant to convert polyester waste; or a healthcare provider like Ballad Health leading in clinical trials and award-winning care; or Pal’s, serving up popular fast-food items even as it expands its sector-leading menu of employee benefits and perks.
