LinkedIn – the social business platform – has revealed its annual rankings of the best employers to work for in the world. The most recent edition of the platform discloses the name of the technology and internet companies that dominate the employment market whereas consultancies like Deloitte, EY, McKinsey and Accenture are among the top 25 companies.
Over 433+ million members took up the survey conducted by the largest professional network of the world to find the best company to work for worldwide. The global editorial teams and insights of the network analyzed the input to find the most desirable company in particular places.
To almost no one’s surprise, the tech giant and Google Parent Alphabet Inc. took the first rank, becoming the most desirable company to work for and with. The worldwide headcount of 72,000 of the Alphabet is working on almost everything from battling online extremism to self-driving cars. Larry Page, the CEO of Alphabet, said while commenting on the popularity of Alphabet that as an employer “you need to stay a bit uncomfortable to stay relevant.”
The online retailing giant – Amazon – is becoming more and more popular these days, especially because of the rise in ratio of online shopping in comparison to offline shopping. The online retailing site is following Alphabet with a staff of over 341,400 people. The internet giant Amazon is at the top of innovation and automation in the retail sector. The online retailer delivered its first package by drone in the UK last year.
The third best place to work for is the tech giant that pretty much everyone must expect to be – Facebook. The social media giant, which has the user base of more than 2 billion monthly active users, is boasting a 96% satisfaction rating. The staffers of the tech giant are working on new methods to battle fake news and internet extremism. The social networking site is aiming to do much more than allow networking, says CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He says, “When you enter our buildings, we want you to feel how much left there is to be done in our mission to connect the world.”
Surprisingly, according to LinkedIn, the next best company to work for is an online transportation service – Uber. The ride sharing service, which is a freelance platform, is one of the most valuable startups in the world that is worth about $68 billion.
The Cupertino-based smartphone maker has taken the fifth spot in the LinkedIn rankings with the employment of overall 110,000 people across the world. The tech giant is working to design and develop a large portion of the most desired digital commodities, with its main focus on perpetual innovation.
