Fastfood giant Jollibee Foods Corp., Ayala Corp. and Aboitiz Equity Ventures landed on Forbes magazine’s 2021 list of the world’s “best employers.”

To come up with the list, Forbes teamed up with market research company Statista to survey 150,000 full-time and part-time workers from 58 countries working for multinational companies and institutions.

Forbes said in an Oct. 12 publication that survey participants had rated their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family and also evaluated other employers in their respective industries that stood out positively or negatively.

Jollibee, Ayala and AEV were among the 750 companies that received the highest scores.

Jollibee ranked 256th on this global list, while Ayala and AEV ranked 487th and 665th respectively.

Overall, South Korean conglomerate Samsung topped the list, followed by American tech firms IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Alphabet and Dell Technologies.

Chinese telecom equipment firm Huawei ranked 8th while software service provider Adobe was ninth on the list.

Automotive giant BMW ranked 10th on the list.
