Based on the billions of interactions on LinkedIn, the company came out with a list of the Top Attractors of 2016. The list honours the most sought after companies in the world that have been successful in not only delivering great work but also satisfying its employees.
The lists were brought out not only for companies at a global scale, but also specific to countries like Australia, Brazil, France, India, U.K., and the U.S. Companies were evaluated based on four criteria-
- their reach (how well-known the company is),
- engagement (the kind of buzz their content creates),
- job interest (how much interest their jobs generate) and
- how well they retain their new hires.

Started by 12 IITians in 2012, Housing.com is a real estate search portal which allows customers to search for housing based on geography, the number of rooms, and various other filters. The company works with 6000 brokers and servers around 40 cities in the country and believes that in a span of a few years it has managed to drive a change in the real-estate sector.

Catering to the Indian needs, the company also offers auto-rickshaw services. With an average booking rate of 1,50,000 a day, the company is worth $5 billion.
The list goes on to include companies like Tata Communication, Wipro, Oyo, Reliance and even Zomato. At a global level, Apple tops the list as the most sought after company, followed by Salesforce, Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft.
It is surprising to note that companies like Flipkart and Amazon.in, who manage to top the list, are currently facing huge losses. Interestingly enough, young Indian companies have managed to set global standards and compete with the multinationals.
This list has also managed to bring out the irony of the Indian system- for a country that is known for its medical tourism, its people are clearly not inclined to work in the healthcare sector. Even with the availability of jobs in various sectors, the Indian employee seems to restrict themselves predominantly to the IT sector.
