Financial firms lead LinkedIn’s top companies in Singapore

LinkedIn unveils companies list where professionals advance the most.

Financial institutions dominate LinkedIn’s 2024 Top Companies list for Singapore, comprising over half of the top 15.

Notably, DBS Bank, a homegrown institution, retains the top spot for the second consecutive year, highlighting its enduring excellence and leadership in the sector.

“LinkedIn’s 2024 Top Companies list for Singapore is a unique and actionable resource for professionals to find out which companies are leading the way in offering good culture, skills growth, and career development opportunities,” says Pooja Chhabria, LinkedIn Career Expert and Head of Editorial, APAC.

“Both seasoned executives and entry-level job seekers can also gain insights on the roles, skills, and job functions in demand at these firms. They can also take action to explore current job openings, connect with employees, and indicate their interest in any company. Professionals should adopt a growth mindset, and acquire a good mix of hard and soft skills as they steer their careers.” Chhabria added.

Whilst financial institutions lead the pack, Schneider Electric, a global leader in energy management, automation, and sustainability, emerges as a significant addition, claiming the second spot and diversifying the top rankings beyond the financial sector.

The healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biomedical sectors showcase a robust presence in this year's list, reflecting increasing demand and opportunities for professionals in these fields. Five companies from these sectors feature prominently, compared to just two in the previous year's list.

LinkedIn's data reveals the in-demand skills sought by companies in the banking and financial services sector, including Commercial Banking, Investment Banking, and Capital Markets. 

Meanwhile, companies in healthcare and biomedicine are keen on skills such as Biomedical Engineering and Pharmaceutics. Additionally, job functions such as Engineering, Research, Operations, Business Development, and Finance are among the largest investments made by these top companies.
