LinkedIn recently released an annual Top Companies list, which ranks the 25 best Canadian workplaces for knowledge economy career growth.
The list is based on unique LinkedIn data that measures different elements of career progression, including how employees are advancing both within a company and when they leave, and how they are up-skilling while employed there.
It is comprised primarily of larger incumbent firms which possess ample resources at their disposal and plenty of ladders to climb up.
The list is topped by payments pioneer Mastercard includes other venerable institutions such as TD, Workday, and Info-Tech Research Group—all of which have been recognized for efforts in helping employees build careers that will set them up for long-term success.
Others companies ranked include technology and financial giants such as Amazon, Alphabet, Scotiabank, Deloitte, and Morgan Stanley.
The methodology for the list considers factors such as attrition and layoffs. For example, companies that laid off 10% or more of their workforce 2022, or that have attrition greater than 10%, were ineligible to rank.
This year’s list comes at a time when the job market is experiencing waves of disruption due to advancements in AI and the rise of the “quiet” trend, which encompasses “quiet quitting,” “quiet hiring,” and “quiet firing,” according to LinkedIn.
While job market conditions remain strong, economic uncertainty, inflation, and news of layoffs persist, the company notes. This is prompting professionals to seek their best next career move and employers to rethink how they attract, retain, and develop talent.
For professionals looking to use the rankings to enhance their careers or job search, the list provides actionable insights and resources.
Additionally, job seekers can explore current job openings and connect with employees to learn more about potential opportunities.
