10 companies with highest profit per employee ratio

These 25 companies have redefined ” the  financial metrics of an organization ”   which  has achieved the highest profit ratio per employee
Revenue per employee, or profit per employee  is a measure of how efficiently a particular company is utilizing its employees. In general,  relatively high revenue per employee is a positive sign that suggests the company  is more productive

Among the first company with highest profit ratio per employee is  a biopharma company : Gilead Sciences, a that develops and sells over a dozen popular drugs, many of which treat patients with HIV, hepatitis or influenza. With an estimated team of just 7,000, Gilead has less than 10% the workforce of giant pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer (~78,000) or Novartis (~135,000).

After Gilead Sciences comes a series of crude oil and natural gas companies, like EOG Resources, Marathon Oil and Hess Corporation. The number 5th and 6th companies with highest profit per employee  are NewField Exploration and Range  Resources Cop

Typically  Oil and gas companies have fewer personnel needs and more infrastructure needs, like transportation, factories, processing and other activities that can be automated or scaled without many additional workers.

general electric concludes $14billion acquisition of alstom

General Electric  has  received a green light from the European Union to buy French energy and transportation firm Alstom for $14 billion.Earlier In April 2014, GE was in talks to acquire the global power division of French engineering group Alstom for a figure of around $13 billion.

Last month General Electric ( GE)finally  concluded the €9.7bn acquisition of the power businesses of Alstom of France after securing the last regulatory approvals it needed,

GE’s acquisition of energy giant Alstom’s  including its lucrative energy business, is one of the its largest deal in the this vertical which  will bring together two of the world’s biggest manufacturers of power plant hardware .

How does GE stand to gain from this acquisition ?

  • The Alstom businesses give GE a much stronger position in steam turbines used in coal-fired, gas-fired and nuclear power plants, and in power grid equipment, as well as a much larger installed base of power plants for its service operations.
  • The market for heavy duty gas turbines  has only four globally active full technology competitors: GE is the market leader followed by Siemens, Alstom and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS). This is due to the large upfront investments in R&D, testing and manufacturing required, setting very high technological and financial barriers to enter the market.

The merged entity would account for more than 50% of the EEA market for heavy duty gas turbines and also very high market shares on the worldwide market for 50 Hz frequency heavy duty gas turbines.

state of apparel industry in china : infographic

"chinese apparel industry : trends and stats"
many of the global brands that are in China have a small footprint. For instance, Zara has roughly 70 stores in China, Benetton has about 25, and Gap has 5, compared with more than 1,000 stores each in their home markets in Europe or North America. And many globally or regionally popular brands, such as Topshop, J. Crew, and Ann Taylor, have yet to open a store in the country. By contrast, consider the brands that have achieved early success in China. Many may be a surprise. Nike and adidas each has approximately 6,000 stores in China, and clothing company Bestseller has more than 4,000. Chinese sports brands Li Ning and Anta each has roughly 7,000 stores, while local casual clothing brands Metersbonwe and Semir have more than 3,000 stores each. Almost all of these are single-brand stores.

Thinnest Smartphone Manufacturers : 10 slimmest mobile phones

For Apple and specially for late Steve Jobs, having the slimmest smartphone was an obsession, and Apple it has continued his dream of  the  iPhone”being the slimmest mobile device handset in the market and it makes it right at the top as the slimmest smartphone with a  mere 7.09 mm.

The 10 slimmest mobile handsets in the market  from thinnest to thickest today are iPhone,Huawei, Samsung, Sony,Meizu,HTC ,BQ,ZTE,Blackberry,OnePlus,Xiaomi, Nokia,LG and Motorola

10  Thinnest  Smartphones Manufacturers: 

While iPhone is the undisputed no 1 being the slimmest mobile device,it  does have a lot of competitors racing in to take that coveted spot . Closely following Apple’s flagship iPhone is Huawei which  is  7.69 mm thin, while Samsung with 7.89 mm takes the  3rd rank

Meanwhile at 9.62 mm LG ranks at the bottom of the list .On the thicker side,feather-light manufacturer Motorola—counter-intuitively—also makes the thickest device

This is likely yet another consequence of releasing more small-screen phones, on average, than competitors. A smaller display often means less room to squeeze in a battery, and as a result, the need for thicker internals.
