These Companies Made US$250,000+ In Profits Per Employee Last Year

Fortune has crunched the numbers and presented some fascinating discoveries. The 500 largest companies in the world employ approximately 69.9 million individuals and earned a grand total of US$2.06 trillion in profits last year – that comes to an average of US$29,500 in profits per employee. But only less than 20 of those 500 companies managed to generate over US$250,000 profits per employee.

Federally-backed home mortgage companies from the US – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – made themselves at home in first and third place respectively. Sandwiched between them is none other than Saudi Aramco; the petroleum and natural gas company that had a jaw-dropping IPO back in 2019, effectively allowing it to rein as the world’s most valuable company until recently. Outside of the Big 3, however, the competition drops off by a considerable margin.
