Central Florida’s top 100 companies for 2011

November 21, 2011

From Orlando Sentinel: 

This is a list of top 100 companies in terms of employment in Central Florida in 2011.

One in every four workers in Central Florida is employed by one of the region’s 100 largest private-sector employers. This table shows those employers and their work-force totals based on operations in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia and Brevard counties as of November 2011. 

Reflecting the still-uncertain economy, fewer than half the companies on the list have more workers than they did a year ago: 46 reported having more workers, 36 reported having fewer, and six reported having the same number as last year. The remaining 12 were not included in, or did not respond to, last year’s Top Employers survey. 

The 100 companies on this year’s list employ a combined 340,233 people — an 8 percent increase from the 2010 list. No. 1-ranked Walt Disney World — the nation’s largest single-site employer — by itself employs nearly 19 percent of the Top 100’s total and roughly 5 percent of all workers in the six-county region. 

Some companies with large Central Florida work forces did not disclose their employment figures this year, most notably Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Bank of America Corp., Home Depot Inc. and Burger King Holdings Inc.
