Revealing The 25 Most Sought-After Employers Globally

Congratulations to the winners for building out employer brands that attract talent and company cultures that engage and motivate employees.

Here are the 25 companies that made the global list (or you can see the winners in US, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India and the UK):
