The Fortune 500 is an elite club of the largest American businesses ranked by total revenue in a given fiscal year. In 2019, these companies combined to generate profits of over $1.2 trillion. It’s easy to get lost in the magnitude of these revenue numbers, so we wanted to provide the attached infographic – in partnership with our friends at www.visualcapitalist.com. Analyzing profits (and losses) per employee within the Fortune 500 list is a unique way of seeing what kind of impact the current climate is having on the largest American companies.
Considering the concentration of market performance in a handful of technology companies this year, we think you might be surprised by the rankings and revenue per employee metrics.
We hope you find the September Infographic informative.
