The biggest winners and losers in the US are all in the same company, according to an analysis of US employers.
Employers in sectors with a combined annual workforce of 1.4 million and annual payroll of $1.6 trillion will see their revenues rise by 8.3% in 2014, according the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That compares with an annual gain of just 3.2% for sectors that have less than 1 million employees.
The data is based on estimates from a survey of employers by research firm Technomic.
It is a preliminary year-end tally and does not include any new data coming out of the Bureau’s payroll surveys or from the jobs numbers for March.
For the full year, the top 10 employers, based on the size of their workforce, will take in an average of $2.7 million in new payroll and wages.
The top 10 for sectors with less than 100,000 employees will take home an average $3.6 million.
The top 10 are:Acumen, a San Francisco-based technology company that makes cloud-based email software.
Employees in the healthcare, retail and entertainment industries will make up the majority of Acumen’s employees, and the company has $5.6 billion in annual revenue.
Acumen is based in Palo Alto, California.
The other big winner for Acumen are a string of online retailers that employ millions of people.
Sales at those companies are expected to grow by 8%, with more than $2 billion in new revenue in 2014.
The biggest losers for Acorns are online pharmacies, where sales will fall by 3.9% in the third quarter of 2014, and medical devices, where revenue will fall 4.4%.
The bottom 10 are aerospace, energy, pharmaceuticals, transportation and telecommunications, and real estate.
The BLS has not released an annual payroll survey since 2002, when the last survey was completed.
In a statement, Acumen said the company’s outlook is “solid.”
The BRS said it is analyzing the survey data in a similar way to a survey that includes the total number of employees at the company and the number of people employed by a firm.
The company is taking an approach similar to one the BLS uses to calculate revenue.
