Prime 15 corporations to work for in Singapore in 2023

LinkedIn has published its annual list of the top Singapore companies to work for – and banking and information technology companies dominated the 2023 list.

The top companies list also underwent a major revamp this year, which the professional networking platform says is a testament to “Singapore’s strong business ecosystem.”

Compared to 2022, there are 10 new companies that made it into this year’s top 15 – including Mastercard, Procter & Gamble, Citi and tech giants Amazon and Apple.

In particular, the banking and finance sector saw 4 companies in the top 5 of “LinkedIn Top Companies 2023″ for Singapore.

“The financial industry in Singapore has always been a key pillar of the country’s economy, and companies like DBS, Standard Chartered Bank and Citi are big employers,” said Pooja Chhabria, LinkedIn Career Expert and Head of Editorial for APAC.

“Singapore is also positioning itself as a fintech hub in the world…which means there continue to be long-term growth and employment opportunities for professionals in areas from sustainable finance to data analytics.”

Amazon and Alphabet both made the list despite making headlines this year with mass layoffs around the world. However, Alphabet – Google’s parent company – fell 6 spots from last year’s list.

Why Amazon, Google and Microsoft have laid off thousands of technicians

Chhabria told CNBC Make It that attrition and layoffs were taken into account when compiling the list.

“To ensure we only feature companies that offer a stable workplace where employees can grow over the long term, companies that laid off 10% or more of their workforce during our methodology period do not qualify for a ranking,” she added.

LinkedIn said it relied on internal data collected between January 1 and December 31, 2022, and measured companies against eight factors that drive career progression:

  • ability to advance
  • skill growth
  • stability of the company
  • External Opportunity
  • company affiliation
  • gender diversity
  • educational background
  • staff presence in the country

Companies must also have at least 500 employees in Singapore as of December 31, 2022 to be eligible.

LinkedIn said the rankings give professionals at all levels “actionable insights and resources,” such as: B. Skills and roles that companies are hiring for.
