Top 20 LinkedIn Companies for 2017
John Lewis Partnership
The Co-operative Group
Lloyds Banking Group
John Lewis holds the top position for the second year running, beating stiff opposition from ASOS and Toyshop owner Arcadia Group in third position.
“The concept of a ‘talent brand’ is increasingly preoccupying recruiters, and our research shows it’s the area talent leaders would most like to invest in this year, a sentiment which is being reflected in my conversations with UK businesses across most sectors,” said Jon Addison, head of Talent Solutions at LinkedIn UK.
“However, it’s not enough simply to build recognition for your business – you have to address the particular questions and concerns of potential employees, and you have to do so whilst establishing the sense of purpose and meaning that makes working for your organisation worthwhile.
“Which makes it no surprise that our Top Companies list this year is dominated by brands who clearly communicate their values and purpose.”
