In fact, increases in revenue per employee as a company scales is an incredibly positive sign of the health of the business. It indicates that the company is achieving economies of scale. Those economies of scale may exist as a consequence of a strong brand, monopoly-like characteristics within their market segment, improving sales efficiency, increases in contract size, better rates of customer upsells, etc. But in all cases, it’s a hallmark of a company whose economics are improving with time.
