LinkedIn has unveiled the 2018 Top Companies list for India and internet companies Directi, Flipkart and One97 Communications are leading the pack. This list represents the companies where India would like to work and is based on the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn members and looks at four main pillars:
- Interest in the company
- Engagement with the company’s employees
- Job demand
- Employee retention
The list also includes Amazon at the fourth position that has previously held the second spot for two consecutive years. Ola, on the other hand, has dropped by 11 spots from the fifth position in 2017 to 16th this year, while McKinsey & Company has made a significant jump from 24th position to 6th this year.
Interestingly, more than 50 percent of the companies are new entrants to the list including Directi, Anheuser-Busch InBev, EY and Daimler AG. And they have given stiff competition to the usual top runners like Adobe, Reliance Industries, and Ola.
Here is the full list of Top 25 companies in India:
3. One 97 Communications (Paytm)
5. Anheuser-Busch InBev
6. McKinsey & Company
7. Alphabet (Google)
8. KPMG India
11. Daimler AG
14. Morgan Stanley
15. DBS Bank
20. Goldman Sachs
22. JPMorgan Chase & Co.
24. Reliance Industries
25. Deloitte India
While this year the India list diversified from tech and internet companies to new entrants from industries such as Automotive, Oil & Gas, and Consumer Goods, the trend of homegrown companies taking the top spots on the lists has still continued.
