Jaguar Land Rover, AstraZeneca and Harrods are the United Kingdom’s top three employers, according to an independent survey conducted by Statista for Bloomberg’s content and research.The main finding from the survey was that 70% of the best employers within the top 50 are British firms.
To identify the best employers in the UK, Statista conducted an extensive online employee survey among 15,000 workers in more than 1600 UK-based firms with at least 500 workers. Respondents were asked a series of questions about job satisfaction; most critically, whether they would recommend their current employer – or a competitor – to a potential employee. To ensure anonymity and the survey’s independence, none of the companies were informed beforehand.
Microsoft, Nike and Google lead the US companies within the top 50 which make up 12%. Interestingly, Microsoft was the only technology company to feature in the top 15 of the full ranking, with Google sitting in 16th place. The British companies sit highest in the survey rankings, however, setting up 2016 to be a good year.
