In the race to attract and retain the best talent, companies are doling out several perks and benefits to employers.

The culture and values of a company as well as the opportunities that it provides in addition to compensation and benefits packages are what make organizations stand out as the most desirable employers.

Studies have shown that what employees really value is job prospects, pay, feeling respected, trust and developing strong relationships with their colleagues.

Most of the employees want their workplace to be fun, not stressful, considering the long hours they will spend working there.

Some companies offer lifestyle benefits for a proper work/life balance, while others have luxurious onsite facilities.

The most sought-after employers have figured out how to attract top talent and then retain them. The best companies in the U.S. to work for are in the tech, media and finance sectors, according to a list by professional networking company LinkedIn.

The 2018 LinkedIn Top Companies list is based on the actions of LinkedIn’s more than 546 million users, with over 146 million in the U.S. alone.

LinkedIn’s research is based on four main pillars - interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention. The company excluded itself and parent company Microsoft Corp. from the list.

Several tech companies have claimed top spots in the rankings, but the list also represents a broad range of companies from industries including media, professional services and consumer goods.
