Apple has topped the list of best tech employers in Britain per new research.
The global jobs web site Indeed ranked Apple top after analyzing “hundreds of thousands” of job evaluations left by employees of expertise companies on its website.
International events producer GDS Group and IT agency Cisco settled second and third respectively, while Microsoft and Siemens rounded out the top five employers. Fellow tech titan Amazon made into the list; however, coming in at number 15.
Apple’s table-topping triumph was attributed to good pay, the offer of discounted or free technology products, health and wellness benefits, along with the corporate’s culture, were cited as causes for its popularity.
The California stationed iPhone maker opened its first European store in London 15 years ago. It now employs 2,500 individuals in the capital alone, with 6,500 UK workers in total.
Bill Richards, Indeed’s managing director for the UK, noted in a press release Thursday that the tech industry typically offered favorable terms to workers.
US corporations dominated the rankings, making up nine of the top 15, while merely three UK corporations made it onto the list. Two of the remaining three were Japanese and the other German agency Siemens.
Richards identified that among the most popular benefits and perks, similar to unlimited paid holiday, were US imports popularized by west coast tech firms.
However, he warned it was “not enough for tech companies to bask in this mirrored glow and hope would-be recruits will line up to work for them.”
“Intense competition for applicants with specialist tech expertise has triggered a battle for talent, and prompted many employers to think carefully and creatively about their offers.”
