This was disclosed by LinkedIn, a global professional network company, in a statement made available to Nigerian NewsDirect on Tuesday.

According to LinkedIn, the companies offer stability in the ever-changing world of work, as they are not only attracting employees but retaining them.

The list includes companies in financial services, information technology, consumer goods, food and beverages, oil and gas, telecommunications, professional services and internet services.

LinkedIn said, “These are companies offering stability in our ever-changing world of work – the ones that are not only attracting employees but retaining them.

LinkedIn data across seven pillars, each revealing an important element of career progression: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and spread of educational backgrounds.”

Commenting on the report, Tunde Ajetomobi, Country Manager, Turn Left Media – the Exclusive Partner to LinkedIn Marketing Solutions in Nigeria, said, “This report reflects the evolving relationship between organisational culture and employee retention. It also shows that the dynamics around talent  acquisition and retention remain a core component which organisations must continue to take more seriously and prioritize in their strategic goals.

“As we all can see, the work environment has fully evolved, the future of work we always talked about is here, the aftermath of COVID-19 made sure of that. Job candidates are increasingly choosing their companies as they continue to adapt by taking on new skills, even as businesses are adapting to new consumer expectations and behavior by leveraging web tech to drive effective brand positioning.

“These rankings are intended to spur organisations in Nigeria to pay closer attention to organizational culture, bearing in mind that competition over quality talent never ceases.”

He added that companies looking to improve their competitive edge have a great opportunity to leverage LinkedIn’s suite of resources to position their brands more favorably to attract and retain quality talent.

“We are a massive resource tool for businesses, we have the B2B Institute, which is a think tank funded by LinkedIn that researches the future of B2B marketing and decision making. We collect valuable data and resources which are very important in making strategic decisions for businesses,” he added.
