The 7 largest employers in the Global 500 by Claire Zillman @FortuneMagazine July 28, 2015, 6:25 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons It takes a lot of manpower for the companies on this year’s Fortune Global 500 list to generate $31.2 trillion in revenue—65 million people, in fact, roughly the same size as the population of Thailand. That is the combined workforce for the 500 companies with the world’s highest revenues. The following companies are the seven largest of the Global 500 with the most employees. Nos. 1, 2 and 4 on the overall Global 500 appear here. Noticeably absent is this year’s No. 3, Netherlands-based Royal Dutch Shell, which reported revenues of $431 billion but employs just 94,000 people, a fraction of the headcount of other top revenue generators. Check out who landed at the top of the Global 500 when ranked by workforce size.
