LinkedIn analyzed billions of actions taken by members of the social network and looked at people’s interest in a company’s jobs, interest in a company’s brand and employees and companies’ employee retention. According to the resulting list, Alphabet came out on top with Amazon ranking at number 2.

Alphabet scored most interest because it gives employees opportunity and resources to tackle problems ranging from “creating self-driving cars to impeding extremism,” according to LinkedIn. The network said job seekers are also interested in Amazon because of its reputation for innovation.
