Top Companies Preferred by Indian Employees

Linkedin India has just released their latest ‘Top Companies’ list for India, and the findings have shocked everyone.

On a certain level, this list seems unrealistic, but maybe the trends of job and employment are changing at such a massive scale, that even the industry observers have been outdated.

Paytm Preferred Over Google By Indian Employees!

As per the findings of the Linkedin India report on the top companies where Indian employees want to work, there are major, totally out of the world results.

Sample this: Instead of Google, world’s largest Internet company, Indian employees prefer Paytm for seeking employment. Paytm is India’s largest mobile wallet, and one of the largest payments bank which is growing at a breakneck speed right now.

If we talk about e-commerce, then it seems that Flipkart is able to attract better talent, compared to Amazon.

The list has been topped by Directi, the $1.4 billion behemoth which has offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles, Ras Al Khaimah, Zurich.

Interestingly, this is Directi’s debut in the list, and what a spectacular entry it has made!

While Flipkart is at #2 position on the list, Paytm is at #3.

Here are the top 10 companies where Indian employees want to work, as per Linkedin:

  1. Directi
  2. Flipkart
  3. Paytm
  4. Amazon
  5. Anheuser-Busch InBev
  6. McKinsey & Company
  7. Alphabet (Parent company of Google)
  8. KPMG India
  9. EY Accounting
  10. Oyo

The Logic Behind This List

The ranking of most desirable companies to work has been created based on proprietary LinkedIn data, and actions performed by their 550 million users across the globe.

As per Linkedin, the ranking has been made only for those companies which have 500 or more employees.

Abhigyan Chand, News Editor at Linkedin said,

“Perhaps that’s why salary, long the key criterion for job seekers, is not the be-all and end-all anymore; flexibility and career progression are equally important.”

There are basically four pillars, which formed the base of the ranking:

  1. Interest in the company
  2. Engagement with the company’s employees
  3. Job demand
  4. Employee retention.
