Avaya Debuts on LinkedIn’s List of Top 100 Employers

LinkedIn just released its annual list of the 100 most in-demand employers… and Avaya debuted as a company that makes LinkedIn users’ pulses race.

The top-100 list is based off the analysis of more than 35 billion interactions between companies and members on LinkedIn, and reflects brand awareness and engagement among LinkedIn members.

Other in-demand companies on the list include Google, Apple, Facebook, Tesla, Nike, Coca-Cola and Twitter.

Avaya’s debut wasn’t too surprising for those who work at the tech company. For industry experts, the announcement was exciting, and Avaya even got a special mention in Forbes. Avaya was also specifically highlighted in LinkedIn’s blog, under the header “hardware is hot.”

What’s unique about Avaya is that although the company creates world-class hardware, it’s also an innovator in software, services and cloud/mobile development.

The allure of Avaya is that it’s bridging the old and new schools of technology together on a global scale, in a way that matters, with people who matter.

Employee engagement permeates the robust company culture. Roughly 13,000 employees work in far-flung corners of the globe and are encouraged to “drink their own champagne” and use Avaya technology to connect, communicate and collaborate amongst teams.

Diversity, including an emphasis on encouraging women in technology, is valued at Avaya, which was ranked No. 21 on the 13th annual “Top 50 Employers” list in Workforce Diversity for Engineering & IT Professionals magazine.

Still, Steve Fitzgerald, vice president and general manager, Human Resources, says the allure of Avaya may run even deeper.

“This is a company that’s been going through an astounding transformation, and we’re about to reach the brink of it. It’s an exciting time to be an Avayan, and we are increasingly finding Avaya to be a preferred employer as our momentum builds, drawing some of the world’s best talent to join us,” he said.

Avaya’s team puts engagement first–and that’s in demand.
