Our Largest Employers
The Sheridan County Chamber has just updated its study identifying the largest employers in the Sheridan County area, as measured by the number of full-time equivalent employees in our area. (see note below)
So who are the first 10 of the largest employers?
1. Sheridan County School District #2 (Sheridan/Story)
2. Sheridan Memorial Hospital
3. Sheridan VA Healthcare System
4. Cloud Peak Energy (Spring Creek Mine, Decker, MT)
5. Northern Wyoming Community College District (Sheridan College)
7. BNSF Railway
8. City of Sheridan
9. (tie) County of Sheridan
Sheridan County School District #1 (Big Horn, Dayton, Ranchester)
This year’s top 10 ranking is essentially the same as in our last study in 2013, with only a few small movements in rank order. But there are more new appearances further down the top 25 list – most notably, Vacutech becoming our 12th largest employer, while not even in the top 25 in 2013. Click here to see the 25 largest employers in the Sheridan County area.
Note: By “full-time equivalent,” we mean that we counted each part-time or seasonal employee as .5 of a full-time employee. By “area,” we are also including employers in Decker, MT, where almost all of the employees live in Sheridan County.
