LinkedIn’s list is compiled based on four key criteria: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention. The homegrown Flipkart Group, with group companies Myntra-Jabong and PhonePe, is home to around 14,000+ employees and has built a reputation for itself as a fast-paced and dynamic workplace. As India’s start-up poster child, Flipkart has long been a magnet for attracting the country’s top talent, particularly in engineering and tech. Flipkart was also recently named the fairest in working conditions and wages for ‘gig economy’ workers by an Oxford Internet Institute study.
“We are happy to be ranked once again as the most sought after workplace in India, which is an endorsement of our brand, and speaks to the ability of homegrown enterprises to create world-class institutions. At Flipkart, we have a unique, open and flexible culture that empowers our employees to do meaningful work that impacts the lives of millions of Indians. The chance to effect real change on the ground has always been our biggest draw as a company, and that allows us to attract top-notch talent who are equipped to create value for India, said Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart.
According to analysis of the rankings published by LinkedIn, companies featuring in the list display high engagement levels with employees, attract interest from external talent, provide great career opportunities, have a winning culture, and excellent benefits. LinkedIn conducts an annual survey of its 600 million plus users globally to determine the top companies to work for in India, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, the U.K, and the U.S., among others.
