Montana Employment Profile

Located in the Mountain-Plains region of the U.S., the Treasure State’s fastest employment growth industry since the recession has been health care, with large job gains also related to the Bakken oil fields development. Manufacturing remains an important component to GDP growth the past five years, especially from petroleum and coal products. Montana’s continued economic growth will be challenged by a limited working-age population restricting labor force growth. (Source: Montana Dept. of Labor & Industry)

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by retail trade; health care and social assistance; accommodation and food services; and construction, respectively.

The largest employers in the state (as of December 2013) include the State of Montana, the Federal Government, Wal-Mart, Albertson’s, Billings Clinic, Town Pump, St. Vincent Healthcare, Benefis Healthcare, Kalispell Regional Hospital, and St. Patrick Hospital. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
