LinkedIn ranking places Apple as the global company that attracts and retains the most talent

We already posted here on the website some rankings compiled by LinkedIn talking about the most desired companies to work for. Today, we bring one more.

Using its own methodology (based on data from the network itself), LinkedIn created the ranking “Top Attractors – Where the World Wants to Work Now” (something like “Main Attractions – Where the World Wants to Work Now”), in which it lists the 40 best companies in the world when it comes to attracting and retaining talent. There are, however, seven different lists: one global and six others focused on different countries (United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, France and India).

Globally speaking Apple is very well positioned, occupying the first position followed closely by other giants in the technological sector such as Salesforce, Facebook, Google and Amazon. Here's what LinkedIn says about the company:

Last year, Apple introduced a new benefit, distributing restricted shares to most of its more than 100,000 employees. This is not uncommon in the world of technology, but the retailers who now make up 30% of the staff from Apple. Not surprisingly, Apple has a very high retention at Apple Stores: 81%, according to retail head Angela Ahrendts. But it is Apple's “transformational” products that represent the “essence of employee satisfaction,” said HR chief Denise Young Smith. While CEO Tim Cook jokes that Apple has "more secrets here than the CIA", former employees exalt talented colleagues on LinkedIn and great flexibility. The company's diversity, too: it hired 11,000 women over a recent 12-month period, an increase of 65%.

In the US, Apple jumps to fourth position, ranking behind Google, Salesforce and Facebook. In the United Kingdom, technology companies do not occupy the top positions (only Google is in the top five). This scenario is repeated in Australia, Brazil and France; in India, Amazon and Google are on Top 5.
