Amazon India Emerges as the Country's Most Attractive Employer Brand Followed by Microsoft India: Randstad Employer Brand Research 2019
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

BANGALORE, June 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Employees seek competitive salary, work-life balance and job security  
  • 45% of the workforce indicates that they plan to change their employer within the next year, 52% is willing to forfeit more than 10% of their salary for job security  

Amazon India, the e-commerce giant, is India's most 'attractive employer brand', reveals the findings of Randstad Employer Brand Research (REBR) 2019 , the most comprehensive, independent and in-depth employer brand research in the world, conducted by Randstad, the global leader in the HR services industry. This recognition for Amazon is a first for the brand in the history of REBR in India, spanning 9 years, and the company scored high on financial health, utilization of latest technologies and a strong reputation. Microsoft India emerged as the runner-up, followed by Sony India.

In line with the REBR philosophy, Google India has been inducted into the Hall of Fame category last year, for winning the coveted title for three consecutive years.

The Randstad Employer Brand Research, covering 75% of the global economy with 32 participating countries this year and more than 2,00,000 respondents worldwide, clearly reveals that in 2019 too, salary and employee benefits continues to be the top driver while choosing an employer for the Indian workforce, followed by work-life balance and job security. These are also the areas where there is a significant gap between what employees want and what employers offer in India. While gender differences between men and women on the top three aspects were minimal, women, however, attributed more importance to salary and benefits (49%) and work-life balance (47%) compared to their male counterparts who ranked these as the top aspects at 46% and 46% respectively.

It is interesting to note the importance accorded to work-life balance as a key factor considered while choosing an employer - this has increased even further (46%) compared to the last two years and the emergence of the fact that employees in India are willing to place a premium on job security. The number of employees in India indicating that they would be agreeable to a security versus compensation trade-off is 23%; higher than the broader APAC average. 52% of the survey respondents said that they were willing to forfeit more than 10% of their salary for job security.

Presenting the REBR 2019 survey insights,  Paul Dupuis, MD & CEO Randstad India, said, "Industry 4.0 has transformed the landscape for enterprises and skills - companies are being forced to digitalize operations, while employees are   up-skilling to continue being relevant in a dynamic marketplace. Employer branding has emerged as a crucial positioning tool for both companies seeking talent with 'must have' skills and candidates seeking organizations that can support their aspirations of realizing a meaningful career."

"The results from this year's REBR reflect the same. The emergence of career progression as a key 'stay or leave' attribute is testament to the fact that even in a digital first world, employees would prefer to work for a company that offers a clear pathway of growth. Add to this mix, 'purpose' and the employer branding proposition becomes an unmatched one," he added.

Top 10 most attractive employer brands in India for 2019:  

  1. Amazon  
  2. Microsoft  
  3. Sony  
  4. Mercedes-Benz  
  5. IBM  
  6. Larsen & Toubro  
  7. Nestle  
  8. Infosys  
  9. Samsung  
  10. Dell  

Other key findings from the Randstad Employer Brand Research 2019  

Top reasons Indian employees stay or leave:  

Job security (45%) emerged as the top factor for an employee to stay with the current employer. Offering increased career growth opportunities could be a great technique for organizations to attract at least 43% of the workforce, who said they left their employers for this reason.

Switchers and Intenders in focus:  

29% of the survey respondents from India mentioned that they changed their employer in the past year and 45% indicated that they plan to change their employer within the next year.

How do Indians look for and find employers?  

64% of the workforce indicated that they used job boards to look out for prospective employers, followed by LinkedIn (59%) and Google (54%). 44% mentioned that they found another employer using job boards, while Google helped 42% find another job.

MNC vs Start-Ups - what does talent prefer?  

According to this year's survey results, a vast majority (55%) of Indians prefer to work for a large multi-national corporation, while a negligible 9% preferred start-ups. The preference for MNCs can be strongly attributed to job security, financial health and career progression opportunities that these organizations are able to offer their employees.

Top 3 sectors in India by awareness and attractiveness:  

The survey also highlights that the Indian workforce prefers to work for companies operating in sectors like IT, ITeS and Telecom (67%), Retail, FMCG and E-commerce (67%), followed by Automotive (66%) and BFSI (65%).

The approach:  

In each country, 150+ large companies are chosen for the survey. This company list is presented to a representative cross-section of relevant respondents: around 3,500 potential and employed  workforce between the age group of 18-65.  There is more emphasis on people aged between 25-44. Unlike similar surveys, HR officers, staff or experts are not invited to take part in the survey, which guarantees maximum objectivity. The respondents are asked to identify the companies they recognize and then indicate whether or not they would like to work for them. In the next step, they evaluate the relative attractiveness of each of the selected companies based on several key factors.
