Central Oregon Employers

Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) is pleased to announce the 2019 Largest Central Oregon Employers, complete with breakouts of the top employers in each Central Oregon community. This data, collected by EDCO annually for the past 20 years, is the most comprehensive major employer list in Central Oregon.

This year, the top 50 private companies collectively employ more than 21,000 Central Oregonians, or roughly 21.5% of the region's current average employment of 99,400 as of Q1 2019. St. Charles Health System tops the list again, employing over 4,400 people region-wide.

According to Damon Runberg, Regional Economist at the Oregon Employment Department, 78% of Oregon establishments had nine or fewer employees and the average private establishment employed 11 people in 2018.


"A big 'thank you' to all the tri-county companies, non-profits, cities and counties that provided information for these lists," said Roger Lee, CEO of EDCO. "While our economy is dominated by small employers, the region has, over time, also attracted and grown some significant employers."

EDCO often fields requests about the employment base and largest private employers from both traded-sector companies (manufacturers, high technology, and some professional service companies) and non-traded sector (retail and commercial businesses, education, healthcare, hospitality, construction, etc.) looking to evaluate the region for investment and new or expanded operations. EDCO's regional list focuses on private (for-profit and non-profit) employers, while those at the community level include both private and public employees.


"This data shows that although Central Oregon attracts many large employers, we are still a region dominated by smaller businesses," said Elise Rossman, Director of Marketing and Communications for EDCO.
