Major Employers

Northwest Arkansas is an outstanding place for business and employment. Led by Walmart Stores, Inc., Tyson Foods, Inc., J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc., and many other world-renowned businesses, our metropolitan area has experienced significant job growth the past two decades as those companies drew in their suppliers to establish nearby satellite offices. Those major companies and the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville remain centerpieces of our economy.

We have a diverse, growing workforce totaling over 272,000. Nearly 40,000 college students attend universities and colleges in the region, giving companies a talent-rich pipeline of potential employees. These entities work with local business and industry to meet existing and new workforce needs.

Respected national publications, organizations and institutions continue to recognize our area as one of the nation’s most successful, thriving regions for job growth and success as evidenced by consistent acclaim, praise and honors over the past two decades.
