Top 10 Employers in India by Randstad Survey

Below is the list in ascending order about the top 10 employers in India by Randstad. The survey was conducted in 2013.
  1. Microsoft
  2. HP - Hewlett Packard
  3. Google
  4. IBM
  5. ONGC
  6. Sony
  7. L&T - Larsen & Toubro
  8. SAIL - Steel Authority of India Ltd
  9. SBI - State Bank Of India
  10. TCS - Tata Consultancy Services
The factors which put Microsoft ahead of the rest are competitive salary and employee benefits coupled with career progression opportunities.

Special recognition awards were also given to Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) in the energy sector, Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) in the manufacturing sector and Larsen & Toubro in the infrastructure sector.

In the current scenario where attrition rate is very high & good talent is hard to find, big organizations are working very hard to brand themselves as a good employer.

According to the survey that covered 7,000 respondents, Indian workforce prefer competitive salary and job security.

Compared to last year, there is a significant increase in the importance given to salary and employee benefits and this has become the most important factor for potential employees, followed by job security.

Besides, competitive salary and job security, the other factors that featured in the top five are pleasant working atmosphere, work-life balance and career progression opportunities.

It's really good to see that public limited firms like ONGC & SAIL are in the top 10 list, that shows employees are still in love with public limited company and gives them the same preference as they give to private companies.

A public Ltd company not only offers job security but also benefits like pensions, career progression, accommodation in upscale areas for senior management, etc. These are the reasons that they're still in high demand.

Growing number of job opportunities in Indian banking sector put SBI in the list. Now people are seeking there career in banking industry which were less in the past. Hope in coming years we'll see few more public limited company names in the list.
