Top employers based on 500 minimum full-time equivalent (FTE) headcount plus all FORTUNE 500/1000 headquarters in metro Atlanta

The Metro Atlanta Chamber's Economic Development Research Team conducted the 2014 Metro Atlanta Top Employers survey to determine which employers (both public and private) have the largest total full-time equivalent (FTE) headcounts based on facilities within the 29-county metro Atlanta area as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau (Barrow, Bartow, Butts, Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, Dawson, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Haralson, Heard, Henry, Jasper, Lamar, Meriwether, Morgan, Newton, Paulding, Pickens, Pike, Rockdale, Spalding, Walton). The survey efforts included direct outreach to organizations by an email survey, a direct mail survey from the Metro Atlanta Chamber's President & CEO, follow-up emails, phone calls and data from third party sources. Final results totaled 205 organizations that qualify as metro Atlanta's top employers. 60 percent of organizations provided direct survey responses with their full-time equivalent (FTE) headcounts. Full-time equivalent (FTE) headcounts for the remaining 40 percent of organizations listed, who did not respond, were sourced through either BusinessWise or the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
