Major Employers

Idaho’s economy has historically included resource-based industries such as mining, agriculture and forest products. However, over the past couple of decades, the economy has seen an uptick in other sectors such as technology, tourism, retail trade, healthcare and business services.

As the capital city of Idaho, Boise offers employment in a variety of government positions – city, county, state and federal.

Boise’s largest employer is Micron Technology, located in Southeast Boise. Hewlett Packard’s printer division is located in West Boise.
