Two companies headquartered in North Carolina have made Fortune magazine’s 2009 “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. The two, both headquartered in Cary, are engineering firm Kimley-Horn & Associates and software giant SAS.

Four other companies with a large presence in North Carolina also made the list. They include pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, the Atlanta-based law firm Alston & Bird and IT giant Cisco Systems. The nation’s top-ranked employer has a North Carolina presence too: the data-management hardware maker NetApp.

Clustered around the Research Triangle, these companies reflect the state’s growth in knowledge-based businesses.

Why it matters: North Carolina employers can show that high-tech firms and the well-educated workforce they need love working in North Carolina.
