That growth prompted U.S. retail giant Walmart to purchase a controlling stake in the business in 2018. At the same time, Flipkart announced plans to grow its headcount by 10 percent.
The company’s continued growth has emerged as a boon for employees too, according to LinkedIn, which shifted Flipkart up in its ranking from second place last year to pole position in 2019.
* Interest in the company is measured by unique, non-employee views and follows of the company’s LinkedIn page. Employee engagement looks at how many non-employees are viewing unique employees at the company. Job demand counts the rate at which people are viewing and applying to jobs at the company, including both paid and unpaid job postings on LinkedIn. Employee retention measures how many employees are still at the company at least one year after their date of hire, based on LinkedIn member profiles.
Hence, these are all the best companies to work for in India.
