The people at Universum just published their 2013 World’s Most Attractive Employers ranking. How do companies fare in Asia when it comes to employer of choice and employer branding? How are students selecting their choice of employers to work for?
Sony, Toyota and Lenovo were the only three Asian companies that made the Global Rankings.
- Sony managed to maintain its 9th position among Engineering students while falling three spots to 18th among Business students.
- Its Japanese counterpart Toyota kept its 45th position among the Business cohort despite taking a slight dip of three positions to 21st among Engineering students.
- Lenovo, the only Chinese company in the list, improved seven positions to reach 37th among the Engineering cohort.
The global rankings were based on the responses of over 200,000 students from top universities in 12 countries, including Australia, China, India and Japan, who participated in Universum’s annual student survey earlier this year. Through the survey, they indicated the organisations they deemed IDEAL to work for and why, as well as their career preferences upon graduation.
- Respondents acknowledge the companies they would “consider working for”
- Then select their five “ideal employers”
- The rankings, dubbed the Universum Top 100, measure the employer appeal of companies in the recruitment market.
