Elon named one of NC Triad's 50 largest employers
The 2012 Triad Business Journal list ranks Elon University the 46th largest employer in the region.
With 1,320 employees, Elon is one of only three Alamance County employers to make the top-50 list published by the Triad Business Journal on Dec. 28. The Business Journal compared employee numbers in 2012 with its 1999 ranking, noting the big changes that have occurred in the Triad economy. While Elon and many other employers have experienced considerable growth, other employers have reduced workforces dramatically in this region.
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is the Triad's largest employer. In addition to Elon, Alamance County's largest employers are Laboratory Corporation of America (Labcorp) and Alamance Regional Medical Center.
