Missouri's Top 50 Employers

The Top 50 Private Sector Employer list is based on the number of employees a business has during a selected quarter. This list is developed using a combination of Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages data and InfoUSA collections. MERIC attempts to combine employee counts for business with more than one location when information is available. This list will be updated annually after 4th quarter data has been finalized.
