LinkedIn ranks companies based on four pillars: interest in the company, engagement with employees, job demand and employee retention. Interest in the company is measured by unique, non-employee new follows of the company’s LinkedIn page. Employee engagement looks at how many non-employees are viewing unique employees at the company. Job demand counts the rate at which people are viewing and applying to jobs at the company, including both paid and unpaid job postings on LinkedIn. Employee retention measures how many employees are still at the company at least one year after their date of hire, based on LinkedIn member profiles. To be eligible, companies must have at least 500 employees as of 1 February and must have flat or positive employee growth over the 12 months (based on LinkedIn Talent Insights data). Only parent companies rank on the list; majority-owned subsidiaries and associated data are wrapped into its total score. All data is normalised based on company size. The methodology and insights time frame is 1 February 2018 – 31 January 2019.All data is aggregated and anonymised to protect members’ private information.

Excluded are all staffing and recruiting firms, nonprofits, educational institutions, government agencies and government-owned entities. Also excluded are LinkedIn and LinkedIn’s parent company, Microsoft.
