Apple revenue per employee (amazing)

As a brief followup to yesterday's article on Revenue Per Employee in Computer Services, here's a mind-blowing statistic:

Apple earns $1,664,431 revenue per employee.

That's right, well over $1.6M revenue per employee. That's just mind-boggling. That revenue statistic just destroys computer service firms, whose best performer earns $169K revenue per employee.

Here are the Apple financial statistics, courtesy of Yahoo Finance:

  • Apple yearly revenue: $57.09B
  • Number of full-time employees: 34,300

I think I'll just tip my hat to them and quit writing.




It is an amazing number, but you need to analyze it in terms of the employees in their entire supply and distribution channels. It is very misleading if you don't include outsourced/subcontracted jobs.
