Tesla is rising higher in the Universum World’s Most Attractive Employers ranking, increasingly attracting engineers and IT students in 2023. The company also appeared for the first time in the business student global rankings.
On Wednesday, Universum published the results of its 15th annual World’s Most Attractive Employers report. This year Universum surveyed over 172,890 business, engineering, and IT students in the world’s nine largest economies (Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, the UK, and the US) between October 2022 and May 2023. These groups of future talent were asked to provide information on the company characteristics they found most attractive in a potential employer, as well as who they considered their ideal employer.
Yusuf Azoz, Chief Executive Officer of Universum, said:
“Our 2023 study shows there is still a sizable gulf between what students look for in an ideal employer, and what companies are willing to offer. Typically in a weaker economy, an employer can roll back expensive benefits – be it higher pay or greater flexibility – but the current economic climate is dramatically different. Higher inflation means it’s hard for employers to slow pay increases, plus flexibility is no longer a benefit but a baseline expectation. In other words, the employer-employee relationship is likely to remain contentious in 2024.”
Universum noted that Tesla has risen in the global rankings in 2023. It was noteworthy that the company appeared for the first time in the ranking of business students, immediately taking 38th place. Among engineers, Tesla took 16th place in the global ranking, improving its position by 10 points. Among IT students, the company took 19th place, up 9 points compared to last year.
Data separately for the United States have not yet been published. However, in 2022, Tesla was ranked as the second most desirable place to work for engineers after SpaceX. At the moment, there are no signs that this trend may change, because Tesla is one of the most revolutionary companies in the world, and continues to develop in a wide range of areas.
