The dramatic headcount growth of select companies
Increase in employees in the past decade:
Home Depot: +184,000
Amazon’s headcount grew by 1,400,000, compared to the other thirteen companies’ combined total of 1,411,000.
I would be curious to see the ratio of additional headcount to increased revenue and/or profit.
What were the selection criteria for the comparison companies?
