Best employers and Great Places to Work

As I blogged earlier, this year will see three "best employer" lists in India for all the job seekers to choose from. Two of those results are out and it's a great time to compare the lists.

For some reason, the BT-TNS-Mercer list looked at only Indian employers. There were no MNCs on this list . Was that intentional? I have no idea.

But these were their results:
Rank : Company
1 : Sasken
2 : Infosys
3 : Thermax
4: HCL Comnet
5 : HDFC
6 : NTPC
7 : Dr Reddy's
8 : Satyam
9 : Patni Computer
10: Hughes Software

Whereas the BW-GT top 10 are :
1. FedEx Corporation
2. Texas Instruments
3. National Thermal Power Corporation
4. Computer Sciences Corporation
5. MindTree Consulting
6. Sasken Communication Technologies
7. Godrej Consumer Products
8. Intel Technologies India
9. Sapient Corporation
10. Honeywell Technology Solutions Lab

As we can see the important difference is that MNCs make up half of the BW-GT list. The other striking point in both the list is Public Sector Unit NTPC making it to number 6 and number 3. That means it's a great employer . Of course, same is true of Sasken the communication company! Those two are the only companies to be in the top 10 of BOTH the lists.

Let's see what the Hewitt-CNBC TV18 survey throws up!
