Banks are struggling to compete with tech firms for business talent, and as a result certain banks have fallen in the rankings.
However, due to the interest of engineering/IT talent in joining professional and financial services firms, some banks have made strong advances in the engineering/IT rankings.

There has also been mixed fortunes for consumer goods firms, with strong “lifestyle” brands doing better than others, such as Nike debuting on the ranking at 16, ahead of the Adidas group at 19.

There is a stable attractiveness for the automotive industry, with the exception of Volkswagen for both business and engineering/IT talent.

There have been significant declines in attractiveness for hardware-focused IT firms and electronics manufacturers and energy industry noticeably less attractive following collapse in oil & gas prices, yet renewable energy firms have seen a spike in popularity amongst both sets of talent.

The World’s Most Attractive Employer 2016 survey ranks organisations based on the feedback of thousands of university business and engineering/IT students from 12 of the world’s largest economies: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, United Kingdom and United States.
