With corporate profits reaching record highs, some companies have been blamed for jacking up prices under the cover of inflation in what’s been termed “greedflation.” Though PepsiCo is regularly mentioned in connection to that practice, its profit per employee is among the lower ones in the S&P 500.

Net income per employee is considered a measure of productivity and efficiency, and companies aim to have high profits per employee. The benchmark is most useful when comparing companies within a certain industry as industries differ in their makeup and some are more labor intensive than others.

To find which companies have the highest profits per employee, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on S&P 500 companies from stock data site Stock Analysis and from Yahoo! Finance. Market capitalization data for the companies is as of the end of trading day on May 2.

We excluded companies without employee data, all REITs, and Pioneer Natural Resources, which became part of ExxonMobil as of May 3, for a remaining total of 471 companies. (Prior to May 3, Pioneer ranked third highest in profits per employees.) While we included trailing twelve month net income and revenue figures, the 50 companies are ranked by their profit per employee. (Rankings of other measures include all companies.)

Among the 50 companies on the list, profit per employee begins at $277,778 for asset management firm BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK) and goes up from there. The company with the highest profit per employee is oil & gas exploration and production company Diamondback Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: FANG) at just over $3 million in profit per employee. The average for the S&P 500 companies with data is nearly $60,000. The average for the 50 companies on the list is $502,000.

Many of the companies with the highest net income per employee are energy companies, including seven of the top 10. The three other companies in the top 10 include tech companies VeriSign (NASDAQ: VRSN) and Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) as well as tobacco giant Altria Group (NYSE: MO). (Also see: These Are The Youngest Fortune 500 CEOs Today.)

The companies on the list are varied in terms of size. A few have less than 1,000 employees, including VeriSign and electronic trading platform MarketAxess (NASDAQ: MKTX), and a few have over 100,000 employees, including tech behemoths Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL), and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). Similarly, profits range from $258 million to just over $100 billion.

For investors, net income per employee is an interesting measure. For one, it can show how a company compares to others in its industry, with higher profits per employee denoting better productivity, efficiency, and how a company is able to turn talent into value. Higher profits per employee can also allow for growth and investment in the business, including, importantly, investment in the company’s own employees by way of raises and benefits.
