As Mayor Alvin Brown proclaims job creation at the top of his priority list, Gov. Rick Scott continues with his call for 700,000 jobs to be created in the state over seven years and the economy marks the start of its third year of recovery from the recession, it’s a practical time to take stock of the area’s employment market.

The Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce maintains a list of the area’s top employers, from those with 100 employees up to No. 1, Naval Air Station Jacksonville and its almost 22,000 jobs.

The list covers the seven counties of Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns.

Starting today, the Daily Record will publish the chamber’s list of the area’s top 100 employers, beginning with the top 20 and continuing next week.

Clearly, the top employers are government, including the public school systems, and health care organizations.

The information is from the chamber’s research department as of 2010. The numbers will be updated next year, according to the chamber.
