CXR Out-Takes: LI’s Top Companies 2017

LinkedIn’s Top Companies 2017

Kudo’s to the following CXR members who’ve been with us this last year and are on LI’s Top 50 list:

Amazon [2], Time Warner [8], The Walt Disney Company [9], Comcast [10], Dell [14], CBRE [18], JPMorgan Chase [20], Stryker [23], Capital One [25], Verizon [29], Deloitte [36], Gartner [43], KPMG [44]

We love the fact that there is at least some effort at describing methodology.

The LI ‘algorithm’ includes:

  • “Job applications: At what rate are people viewing and applying to job postings featured on LinkedIn?”
  • “Engagement: How many non-employees are viewing and asking to connect with a company’s employees? How many professionals are viewing a company’s career page? …Etc.”
  • “Retention: Are employees sticking around for at least a year?”

The fact that a retention calculation (measured we guess by profile changes) moderates the churn is a good way to calibrate. The key however is that these firms must be hiring (via LI) and visibly using and marketing LinkedIn's added services to score.
