Hospitality app OYO has been named in the LinkedIn Top Attractors list for India in 2016. The hospitality firm has been ranked at number 16 overall and 6th in the rank of home-grown Indian companies among the 25 featured companies.
‘The Top Attractors’ list is the first ranking of its kind to be based entirely on actions of LinkedIn users. According to LinkedIn, the 25 companies featured on the list are the best in India at attracting and keeping top talent.
Speaking about the achievement, Ritesh Agarwal, CEO and Founder, OYO, said, “We are ecstatic at being recognized as a top attractor by LinkedIn. People and technology form the crux of our operations and this survey along with its methodology represents the best convergence of the two.”
Globally, the list featured companies such as Apple, Facebook and Uber. LinkedIn partnered with Censuswide Research to carry out an online survey of 6,266 workers between May 18 and May 23, 2016. The countries surveyed were Australia, Brazil, France, India, UK and USA.
The list comprises companies where people most eagerly want to land jobs, and stay in them, as determined by 12 metrics that measure online actions taken by LinkedIn’s members. Among those metrics are the number of views and applications per job posting on LinkedIn and other career sites, the number of views of a company’s career page, and employee retention statistics as measured through profile updates.
