From luxury retail to construction and insurance firms, LinkedIn has published its latest “Top Companies” list for France — and it seems that banks are a popular choice.
Moving up six places from last year’s rankings, international lender BNP Paribas has been named as the top business to work for in France this year.
To create each of its “Top Companies” lists, the professional networking platform evaluated each company against four pillars, including how much interest and engagement a business has, along with job demand and employee retention.
With a user base of more than 610 million, LinkedIn compiles lists to see which companies best suit certain countries, including France, Brazil, Germany, and the United States. In France alone, LinkedIn has confirmed to CNBC that there are over 17 million members.
Here are the top 10 businesses to work for in France:
