Most Valuable Employees

Energy companies, including Anadarko Petroleum Corp., are creating more market value per employee than any other industry, aided by technology that helps them bring oil and gas out of the ground.

Three oil producers made the top 10 in an analysis showing which Standard & Poor's 100-stock-index companies have the most valuable employees, based on their Aug. 20 market capitalization divided by the number of workers. Simon Property Group Inc., the biggest mall operator in the U.S., led the list and Apple Inc. placed third, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The analysis is one way to look at the efficiency of individual companies, allowing investors to compare similar operations with comparable headcounts.
