LinkedIn, a business and employment-focused social media platform, has ranked DBS Bank as the best workplace to grow a career in Singapore.
The 3rd annual LinkedIn Top Companies also featured other financial institutions including Standard Chartered Bank, Mastercard, Citi, Grab, and the Bank of America.
The top 15 ranking looks at components like how employees are advancing both within a company and when they leave, how they’re upskilling while employed there, and more — revealing companies that help set people up to get ahead in their careers.
When compiling the list, LinkedIn also considered factors like attrition and layoffs. Companies that have laid off 10% or more of their workforce between 1 January 2022 and the list launch, based on public announcements — or that have attrition greater than 10%, based on LinkedIn data — were ineligible to rank.
Here are the financial institutions that made it on to this year’s ranking:
