The names are familiar. The tremendous growth in Central Texas has been driven by jobs. Ever wonder who the biggest private-sector employers are? According to the Austin Business Journal, HEB is the largest employer in the Austin area with over 20,000 employees. They are quite far ahead of Dell Technologies, which comes in at second with an estimated 13,000 employees. Ascension, which owns the Seton hospital chain and Dell Children’s is third with over 12,000 employees. Still above the 10,000 mark, Amazon comes is fourth, followed by St. David’s. Walmart takes sixth place In 7th place, Apple has over 7,000 (and with their new campus just about finished, that number will be increasing steadily). Home Depot takes 8th, IBM is 9th, and Accenture is in 10th. I’ll also mention that Tesla is in 11th place.
