Mapping The Best Company To Work For In Your Country
Mapping The Best Company To Work For In Your Country

<p>With stock markets around the world hitting<a href="https://www.thebalance.com/dow-jones-closing-history-top-highs-and-lows-since-1929-3306174" target="_blank"> record highs</a> almost every day and unemployment dropping to its<a href="http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/03/news/economy/october-jobs-report/index.html" target="_blank"> lowest level in 17 years</a>, it’s safe to say that <strong>skilled employees are now discovering the flexibility to decide where they want to work</strong>.</p>

<p>This raises an interesting question. <strong>What’s the best company to work for where you live?</strong></p>

<p><em><a href="https://howmuch.net/articles/worlds-best-employers-by-country-2017">HowMuch.net </a>took new data from Forbes to create a unique map to help you find out. </em></p>

We mapped these companies by paying attention to their market capitalization to get a feel for how large an organization needs to be to afford such high-quality benefits. One company therefore represents each country, color-coded by market cap. <em><strong>Red countries have an employer worth over $100B, and dark blue countries boast relatively small employers under $10B.</strong></em> Several trends immediately pop out from our map.</p>

<p dir="ltr" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 1rem; text-align: justify; color: rgb(41, 43, 44); font-family: Merriweather, serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;">Red countries with huge companies predominantly originate in North America and Western Europe. Alphabet (think<a href="http://money.cnn.com/2015/10/02/technology/google-alphabet/index.html" style="box-sizing: inherit; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(91, 182, 77); text-decoration: none; touch-action: manipulation;" target="_blank"><span> </span>Google</a>) is the largest on our list by a landslide with a market cap of $579.5B, bigger than the<a href="https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.MKTP.CD?view=map&year_high_desc=true" style="box-sizing: inherit; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(91, 182, 77); text-decoration: none; touch-action: manipulation;" target="_blank"><span> </span>entire GDP</a><span> </span>of Argentina. The three exceptions proving the rule are a tobacco company in India called ITC with a market cap of $51.6B, plus Hong Kong (CNOOC, $54.8B) and Taiwan (Han Hai Precision, $54.4B). All three of these places experienced long-term and unique economic and political relationships with the West.</p>

<p dir="ltr" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 1rem; text-align: justify; color: rgb(41, 43, 44); font-family: Merriweather, serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;"><strong>There are three obvious and glaring gaps on our map as well.</strong> Africa only contributes a single company to Forbes’ list, namely Remgro from South Africa, a conglomerate made of many subsidiaries from different industries. The Middle East and Eastern Europe also have only a few companies counted among the best places to work in the world. These places have a long way to go before they will become desirable destinations for people to find work.</p>

Think about the list like this: the U.S. has the biggest and best company in the world, Alphabet. <strong>Which country has the second biggest company? Switzerland.</strong></p>
