DALLAS - Dallas has one of the most diverse employer bases in the country, according to new research from JLL.

Based on data compiled from Moody’s Analytics and the Dallas Business Journal, JLL found that the city rated an 80 (on a 1 to 100 scale), which means the market is not based solely or disproportionately on one particular industry/employer.

As a result of this diversification, employment volatility rates a 93, meaning the metro is one of the most stable in the country.

The top employer is Walmart with approximately 34,700 local employees. Bank of America and Carlson Restaurants follow behind with 20,000 employees each. Then comes Texas Health Resources (19,200), Baylor Health Care (16,900), AT&T (15,800) and JPMorgan Chase (14,500).

The largest type of employer is business and professional services (17.5 percent), followed by government (12.3 percent), education and health services (12.2 percent) and retail trade (10.1 percent).

Not surprisingly, energy concerns did not register in the report. According to JLL, the industry constitutes just .5 percent of the workforce in Dallas (1 percent in DFW combined).
