Major Employers



Situated in the center of Georgia, whose economy is forecasted for steady growth well into the forseeable future, and at the physical crossroads of two major interstates and excellent highway networks, Macon Ga is a great place for businesses to call their home; and local employers draw from a civilian labor force that includes at least five surrounding counties.  In addition to low business costs, abundant water, two rail roads, and a Certified Georgia Work Ready status--with Bibb County holding the distinction of being the largest county in Georgia by population to achieve Georgia Work Ready certification, Macon Ga is also just a seventy-five minute drive away from Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport, adding value and convenience for employers and employees alike.   Moreover, while Robins Air Force Base in neighboring Warner Robins is the single largest employer in the midstate, counting over 20,000 employees on its annual federal payroll that exceeds $1.8 billion, greater Macon Ga looms large as the financial, retail, medical, educational, and cultural center of Middle Georgia.  Top employers in Macon Ga are impressively diverse among industries, as well, with education, health care, aerospace, manufacturing, government, insurance, retail, and financial services strongly represented in workforce numbers.
