In a recent study by Forbes, Samsung Electronics has topped the world’s best employer list. The study reportedly asked the willingness of the participants to suggest employers based on covid-19 reaction, acquisition of talent, gender equality, and more.
In collaboration with market research firm Statistica, Forbes research is done. Accordingly, the survey was taken anonymously by over 160,000 participants from 58 nations. Reportedly, they are the full-time and part-time staff. The report says the survey ran from June to July on a rolling basis.
Samsung Electronics has topped the list of 750 MNCs(Multi-National Corporations) headquartered in over 45 countries.
With 247 employers, the United States dominated the chart, followed by Europe with 224 and Asia and Oceania with 208. At No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, South Korea’s Samsung was ranked No. 1, followed closely by American Amazon and IBM. Unsurprisingly, employees of IT, software, and telecommunications organizations, who have seen business expand and have been able to move more easily to work remotely, have tended to score the coronavirus responses of their businesses more favorably than employees of travel and leisure or transport companies.
Many of the businesses on the list were not immune to the impact on their workforces of Covid-19. Amazon, most prominently, is facing a lawsuit claiming that the company did not have a safe work atmosphere for employees of its JFK8 Staten Island plant. And currently, at least eight Amazon workers have died from Covid-19. But the organization has made major investments in occupational safety since the pandemic began.
In June, it gave a bonus of $500 million to all front-line workers and partners and invested $4 billion on Covid-related initiatives, including providing more than 100 million face masks to workers, enforcing temperature controls at sites across the world, and mandating better cleaning procedures, among others, at all Amazon sites. The organization has also begun checking its staff regularly for Covid-19, and by November plans to do 50,000 tests a day across 650 locations.
In order to evaluate the ranking, Statista surveyed more than 160,000 full-time and part-time staff from 58 countries employed in various countries or regions for business operations. The surveys were all anonymous, allowing participants to express their views freely. The respondents were asked to rate their willingness to suggest friends and family to their own employers. In their respective sectors, they were also asked to assess other employers who stood out either favorably or negatively.
