Today I’m going to give you a run down of some of the top employer in the Twin Cities metro area.
The Minneapolis area is a “hub for headquarters”! We are home to MANY fortune 500 companies including (but not limited to) giants like
- United Health Group – healthcare & insurance
- Target – Retail
- Best Buy – Retail
- US Bank – Banking & Finance
- 3M – industry, worker safety, US health care, and consumer goods
- CHS – Agriculture cooperative & farm lobby
- US Bancorp- Banking & Finance
- General Mills – Food processing & maker of many major food brands
- Ecolab – Hygiene & infection control
Large PRIVATE companies include names like:
- Cargill – Agriculture
- Mortensen Construction
- Anderson Construction
80 of INC’s 5000 fastest growing companies in the US are located here in the Twin Cities.
Other industries that are very well represented here are education & healthcare. The Minneapolis- St. Paul area is home to 25 colleges and universities, from the main campus of the University of MN to smaller private colleges like Gustavus and Augsburg, to community & technical college and even smaller schools that specialize in particular trades. If you are a teacher in k-12, the Minneapolis – St. Paul schools and thee districts surrounding them employ many thousands of teachers and support staff.
Healthcare systems in the Twin Cities area include HealthPartners, Fairview Hospital, Allina Health, Hennepin County Health, and the Minneapolis VA among others.
The twin cities has a very diverse economy & that is one of it’s strengths! Because of this diversity the economy in this area is generally stable and growing – the unemployment rate in MN is consistently lower than the US unemployment rate.
If you are thinking of moving here, chances are that there will be a good fit for you work-wise. If you have questions I’d love to hear from you – please leave a comment or contact me via my contact info.
