John Lewis Partnership has been named the most desirable company to work for in the UK for the second year running.
The company, which is made up of John Lewis and Waitrose, beat Asos, Arcadia and Harrods to the top of the Top Companies 2017 list compiled by Linkedin.
Retail companies dominated the list this year, with Sainsbury’s, Selfridges, Amazon and Burberry also making the top 20.
The Top Companies list is based on the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn’s 500+ million members.
Linkedin’s data team, working with its global editorial team, analysed those actions to come up with a blended score to rank the winners.
Its methodology takes into consideration three main pillars to uncover the companies Linkedin members are most interested in now: job applications, both views and applies on postings; engagement, with employees as well as with the company directly; and retention, how many employees are sticking around for a year or longer.
Here are this year’s top 20 companies in the UK:
- John Lewis Partnership
- Arcadia Group Ltd
- Liberty Global
- PWC UK
- The Co-operative Group
- Deloitte UK
- KPMG UK
- Lloyds Banking Group
