White Collar Dominance

The largest employing sector is Professional, Scientific and Tech Services (including IT support) that accounts for 16% of the workforce, closely followed by Finance and Insurance on 12%.

This is not particularly surprising, when you consider that the largest single employer in the city is Allstate. This company is the second largest provider of line insurance products in the US, and they are headquartered in Northbrook. Their workforce stands at around 8,750 strong. This means they are obviously an extremely important section of the local jobs market, and also represent a healthy chunk of those Professional, Finance and Insurance jobs we mentioned above.

Finally, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is a safety consulting firm with some 2,000 employees and a headquarters in Northbrook.

Healthcare (14%), education (10%) and Retail (10%) are all strong sectors too, but in this town, Corporate, White Collar roles dominate the workforce.
