ven amid recent large-scale tech layoffs, now is a great time to look for a new job. Many sectors are hiring and quit rates are high. The end result: U.S. job openings outnumber candidates nearly 2 to 1, according to a recent analysis by staffing firm Robert Half.

Globally, the labor market can vary greatly by country. The Future of Jobs Report 2023 from the World Economic Forum indicates that jobs are more plentiful in higher-income countries than they are elsewhere. But there are jobs everywhere, in all shapes and sizes—and with more remote and hybrid roles harnessing innovative ways for teams to connect worldwide.

“During the pandemic, folks were just trying to keep the lights on—just trying to make it work,” says Kathryn Landis, founder and CEO of global coaching and advisory firm Kathryn Landis Consulting. “Now they have a little bit more space and capacity to think more expansively.”

To identify which companies offer exciting work and a positive environment, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to create our seventh annual list of the World’s Best Employers.

To determine the ranking, we surveyed more than 170,000 employees in over 50 countries who work for multinational companies and institutions. Respondents were asked whether they would recommend their company to family or friends, and to rate their employer based on such criteria as talent development, remote working options, parental leave benefits, diversity, work-life balance and pride in the product or services the company offers. Participants could also rate companies within their own industries and countries.

Responses were codified into a scoring system, and the 700 companies with the highest scores earned a place on the final list, which ultimately spanned 43 countries. The number of honorees varied by country population and qualifying companies.

As with all Forbes lists, companies pay no fee to participate. For questions about this list, please contact listdesk (at) forbes.com.
