IT services companies including Tata Consultancy Services, Accenture, Cognizant, Infosys, Wipro are some of the top workplaces in India in 2022, as per a survey by professional networking platform, LinkedIn.

The 2022 Top Companies list for India — the sixth annual edition reveals 25 best workplaces where professionals in India can grow their careers. These 25 companies have continued to attract and retain talent by offering stability in today’s ever-changing world of work.

As digital transformation continues to influence India’s business landscape, IT companies lead this year’s list with 11 out of top 25 companies from the Information Technology & Service Industry. The Top 3 companies are tech giants Tata Consultancy Services, Accenture and Cognizant, each of which is consistently ramping up IT investments, thus sparking more hiring and skilling opportunities.


The survey showed 23 out of the 25 Top Companies having offices in Bengaluru. 

“The 2022 Top Companies India list spotlights the continuing influence of tech companies on India’s labour market dynamics. The companies on the list are at the vanguard of refreshed organisational policies that foster young talent, promote retention by upskilling, and boost women representation in the workforce,” says Nirajita Banerjee, India Managing Editor, LinkedIn. 

One of the key observations is that as businesses become location agnostic and dependency on tech intensifies, top companies are focusing on expanding their workforce to make it more competent and diverse. Wipro that secured 6th rank, for example, plans to hire nearly 30,000 freshers in fiscal year 2023, up from 17,500 in FY22.


HCL Technologies is almost doubling its fresher hiring target from around 22,000 in FY22 to 40,000-45,000 in FY23 to meet the demand-supply gap for tech talent. As other companies focus on tapping young talent, IBM plans to expand to and hire from non-metro cities to cast a wide talent net.

Top Companies in the IT sector are taking strides towards inclusivity and representation by revising their organizational policies. Accenture (#2) has moved closer to its goal of 50:50 representations with women now comprising 45% of the company’s workforce, after switching to gender-neutral policies in India last year. Wipro has also taken actionable steps towards inclusion by introducing a return to work programme to help women relaunch their careers after a break. The total employee strength at TCS is more than 5 lakh; more than 2 lakh of whom are working women.  

 As per the survey, as India’s labour market continues to tighten, more organisations are now making it a top strategic imperative to hire, develop, and retain the right talent. Ranked 4th in the survey, Infosys is aiming to attract the best talent in India by extending tailored L&D opportunities, having onboarded over 1.2 million users on its digital reskilling platform. Cognizant, holding is offering promotions and higher bonuses, and investing in employee training to encourage long term talent growth and retention.  


Further, this year’s top company TCS was able to successfully mitigate the aftermath of the Great Reshuffle by offering promotions and growth opportunities to its employees, which helped the IT giant to maintain higher retention rates among India’s IT majors.
