Apple is the sixth most desired employer in the US
LinkedIn makes its annual US employer ranking based on four different factors: reach, engagement, job interest, and new hire staying power. Reach shows the recognition each company has, engagement is for how well each company engages its employees in the working process, job interest – how much the company's positions are sought after, and finally new hire staying power, which shows if a company can make its new employees stay.
Apple has climbed one place since last year's ranking, where it was placed seventh. Among the reasons why people enjoy working for Apple, LinkedIn has stated the 25% discount on company's devices, Apple's maternity policy, which includes 18 weeks for moms and 6 weeks for dads, and the attention it pays to workers' health, even mentioning the Cupertino medical clinics, which will open to provide health care for Apple's employees and their families.
