"This year, half the companies were new entrants on the list, including IT giants like TCS and IBM that showcase the changing job and hiring landscape," LinkedIn India Managing Editor Adith Charlie said.
Charlie further said that "the presence of more blue chip Indian companies such as Larsen & Toubro and Reliance Industries, among others emphasises the fact that these large firms are getting better at attracting millennial employees.”
The list analysed billions of data points generated by LinkedIn's over 610 million members around the world to come up with a blended score used to rank the winners in each geography.
The report further noted that majority of companies on the list made maximum new hiring for engineering jobs followed by operations and business development.
LinkedIn ranked the companies based on four criteria—interest in the company, engagement with employees, job demand and employee retention.
