AbbVie Inc (NYSE: Chart ABBV - $158.25 0.81 (0.509%) ), Dell Technologies Inc (NYSE: Chart DELL - $38.31 0.50 (1.305%) ) and Amazon.com Inc (Nasdaq: Chart AMZN - $97.24 2.00 (2.051%) ) are among some of the best workplaces for career growth, according to a new ranking by professional networking site LinkedIn.
Released Tuesday, LinkedIn’s first-ever “Top Companies: City Edition” identified the best 25 companies in 10 growing markets across the US. LinkedIn said each metropolitan area — Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Minneapolis and Seattle — is attracting a high number of jobseekers.
LinkedIn examined 25 companies of at least 50 employees in each area that are “heeding the call to put workers first,” the site said.
To compile the rankings, LinkedIn measured localized data against seven pillars that can lead to career progression: ability to advance, company affinity, company stability, educational background, external opportunity, gender diversity and skills growth.”
LinkedIn noted that the compilation excluded itself and its parent company, Microsoft Corporation, along with any subsidiaries owned by the software giant. Recruiting firms, educational institutions and government agencies were also not included.
The ranking comes at a time when many people whose jobs were lost due to the pandemic are taking stock of their careers and looking to hit the reset button.
Juliette Faraut, an editor at LinkedIn News, said, “As many workers reevaluate not just their job options but where to settle down, these lists offer a good place to start the search for that right fit. Plus, all of the companies on these lists are currently hiring.” The top three companies in each city are as follows:
The Home Depot Inc
Delta Air Lines Inc
Dell Technologies Inc
Fidelity Investments Inc
Massachusetts General Hospital
Liberty Mutual Group
Bank of America Corporation
Lowe’s Companies Inc
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited
The Procter & Gamble Company
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Fifth Third Bank
The Progressive Corporation
Lockheed Martin Corporation
American Airlines Inc
The 3M Company
