LinkedIn has released it’s “2014 Most InDemand Employer Rankings.”

It’s the third annual such ranking, “based on the analysis over 35 billion interactions between companies and members on LinkedIn.”

According to LinkedIn:

“The way companies are ranked boils down to LinkedIn member awareness of a company (e.g. how many people have viewed your employees’ profiles within the past year) and engagement on LinkedIn (e.g., how many members have followed your company’s Company or Career Page within the past year). Higher talent brand awareness and engagement among members on LinkedIn equal a more effective talent brand and a higher InDemand ranking.”

It’s a list of 100 but LinkedIn only lists the top 10 on its infographic titled the “100 Most InDemand Employers Worldwide in 2014.” Then there’s a link in it to the full list, but you’d have to manually type it in, since you can’t hotlink in an infographic, if I didn’t do that for you right here. It’s weirdly terrible execution.


Google and Apple hold first and second place, respectively, for the third year in a row. The rest of the list includes some names that have been there before and some new ones.

Here’s the top 10 list. You can see how it compares to last year’s list here.
