8 startups which are most sought-after workplaces in India

Read full story
Most job-seekers are undeterred by lay-offs and cost cutting and are looking for opportunities to work in startups.

A LinkedIn report studied a list of top 25 companies and conducted a research based on the actions of job seekers and professionals.

The study highlighted startups were most sought-after options for job-seekers.

"There is clearly a trend that industry disrupters are getting a preference. Ola has disrupted urban mobility and it is resonating with the job seekers. OYO has disrupted the hospitality industry for budget travellers," said Irfan Abdullah, Director Talent Solutions at LinkedIn India.

Flipkart yet again beat Amazon and remained the top choice for an Indian job seeker.

Surprisingly, One97 Communications, Paytm's parent company, displaced Google's Alphabet to become fourth most sought-after company.

"Well-funded startups are still hiring. Companies that are doing well on the business model front are well capitalised and they still attract employees," said Abdullah.
