Walmart-owned Flipkart is the most preferred workplace in India, followed by Amazon and OYO in the second and third places, respectively, according to LinkedIn’s latest ranking released on Tuesday. E-commerce companies, ride-hailing and food-delivery firms, and IT businesses dominated the top spots in the list. From homegrown companies to global giants, the leading firms in the LinkedIn list were cited as those that promised growth, offered jobs and fairness in working conditions and wages. Internet businesses Amazon, Paytm, OYO and Alphabet featured in the top 10 for the third consecutive year. TCS made its debut at the seventh place. New entrants and homegrown internet and consumer services companies Swiggy and Zomato were ranked sixth and eighth, respectively. Uber, another new entrant, took the fifth spot, while, One97 Communications was at the fourth rank and Oil and Energy conglomerate Reliance Industries was at the 10th place. “This year, half the companies are new entrants on the list, including IT giants such as TCS and IBM that showcase the changing job and hiring landscape,” said LinkedIn India Managing Editor Adith Charlie.
Among the companies making upward movement was hospitality chain OYO, from the tenth spot to number 3. Amazon moved up from last year’s fourth spot to the third. Those that saw downward movement were Paytm, Ola, Alphabet and KPMG among others. Charlie further said that “the presence of more blue-chip Indian companies such as Larsen & Toubro and Reliance Industries, among others emphasizes the fact that these large firms are getting better at attracting millennials employees”. The report further noted that majority of companies on the list made maximum new hiring for engineering jobs followed by operations and business development. The professional network site said that the list is fuelled by exclusive LinkedIn data, including job demand, engagement and retention. LinkedIn has around 54 million users in India. The annual list forms part of a LinkedIn’s wider analysis of 610 million users to determine the top companies to work for across Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, the UK, and the US. – Here is full list of the top 25 companies this year, according to LinkedIn
