Here are the Companies Where the World Wants to Work Now

June 20, 2016

The results are in! We just announced our inaugural Top Attractors of 2016. The list honors the companies most sought-after by professionals around the world based on billions of interactions on LinkedIn. You can see the top 40 winners globally, or across Australia, Brazil, France, India, U.K., and U.S. Congratulations to the winners!

Top Attractors share a hard-earned competitive edge: powerful employer brands that bring in top talent, and inspire them to stay. And it’s not only exciting to be a top employer, but it’s also valuable. Companies that invest in their employer brands lower their hiring costs because their good reputations amplify their ability to recruit and retain top talent. Companies that don’t invest in their employer brands end up paying for it: up to $4,700 more per employee hired.  

Most companies can’t afford that. Can yours?

Luckily you can build a strong employer brand regardless of your size, industry, and location. Let’s take a look at some facts about the Top Attractors:

Top Attractors Methodology

To determine the Top Attractors, we assessed companies on four factors:

  1. Reach: How well-known they are.

  2. Engagement: How much interaction their content receives.

  3. Job interest: How much interest their jobs generate.

  4. New hire staying power: How well they retain new hires.

We observed how much our 433M+ members discovered and engaged with these companies, applied to jobs, and whether new hires stayed after joining.
