Flipkart is No 1 in LinkedIn’s list of best workplaces in India
Flipkart has taken the top slot in LinkedIn’s fourth edition of Top Companies list for India.
Determined by the actions of its 610-plus-million members globally, the annual ranking highlights 25 most sought-after companies in the country by professionals.
The list reveals where Indian professionals want to work and stay, fuelled by proprietary ‘LinkedIn insights,’ which include the job seeker’s interest in the company, engagement with employees, job demand, and employee retention. Internet companies dominate the top 10 spots, with Amazon moving to the second spot from the fourth last year, and OYO making it to the third spot from 10th last year.
India’s IT giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has debuted at seventh spot. New entrants and homegrown Internet and consumer services companies Swiggy and Zomato rank at sixth and eighth slots, respectively.
“Every year, based on LinkedIn’s unique position to be the pulse of what job seekers in India are looking for, the Top Companies list highlights homegrown companies and global giants, where professionals want to land their next job. Interestingly this year, half the companies are new entrants , including Tata Consultancy Services and IBM that showcase the changing job and hiring landscape,” said Adith Charlie, India Managing Editor, LinkedIn.
“The presence of more blue chip companies such as Larsen & Toubro and Reliance Industries, among others, emphasises the fact that these large firms are getting better at attracting millennial employees,” Charlie added.
