Not one, but two leaders in retail real estate have been named to LinkedIn’s Top 50 Companies list.
CBRE came in at No. 18 and Jones Lang LaSalle at No. 21, ahead of such companies as Adobe, Oracle, and Coca-Cola.
The social media site for professionals determines rankings by interest in a company's jobs, interest in a company's brand and employees, and employee retention among its 500-million-plus members.
LinkedIn credited CBRE with staying on a roll in a “tepid commercial real estate market” and praised it for winning an LGBTQ Business Excellence Award.
JLL promises to put clients in their ideal office space, and LinkedIn praised the company for practicing what it preaches in revamping its Chicago headquarters.
"We are committed to a diverse and inclusive culture in which our employees can achieve their ambitions and help our clients achieve theirs," said JLL’s chief human resources officer Mary Bilbrey in a statement reacting to the LinkedIn ranking.
The top five companies on the LinkedIn list were Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, Salesforce, and Uber.
