This week, LinkedIn announced the results of its annual Global Top Companies List, a ranking of the businesses getting attention from today’s top talent.
Amazon snagged the #2 spot on the list, up from #5 in 2016. Recognized for our role in “transforming how the world shops and consumes entertainment” LinkedIn noted Amazon’s first package by drone delivery in the UK, opening of brick and mortar stores in the U.S. and the launch of Prime Video in India as examples of the innovation that happens among our employees and between our teams throughout the world, every day.
To build the list, LinkedIn reviewed the actions of its over 500+ million members with three pillars in mind – interest in a company’s jobs, interest in a company’s brand and employees, and employee retention. In May, Amazon also ranked #2 on LinkedIn’s Top Companies list for the U.S.
