The 2022 LinkedIn Top Companies list in Nigeria is the first annual ranking of the 25 best workplaces to grow careers in the country-based on unique LinkedIn data.

LinkedIn in the statement said, “These are companies offering stability in our ever-changing world of work – the ones that are not only attracting employees but retaining them”.

To compile this year’s rankings, LinkedIn said it considered “LinkedIn data across seven pillars, each revealing an important element of career progression: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and spread of educational backgrounds”.

Companies that were eligible for the ranking included firms with at least 500 employees as of December 31, 2021, and an attrition rate no higher than 10% from January to December 2021. The methodology timeframe used was based on LinkedIn data.

Companies with layoffs of more than 10 percent of their workforce during that time, based on public announcements, were not considered in the ranking, the statement further said.

More so, only parent companies ranked on the list. “Majority-owned subsidiaries and data about those subsidiaries are incorporated into the parent company score. All data counts are normalised based on company size across the pool of companies eligible for the list,” said LinkedIn about the report’s methodology.
