LinkedIn released its 2021 Top Companies list of the 50 companies offering employees the greatest opportunities for career growth based on ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and educational background. Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) was excluded, as it is the parent company of LinkedIn.

Topping the list is Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), including all of its many subsidiaries. It was recognized for its growth and its commitment to internal mobility. Particularly in demand are people for health and safety specialist, station operations manager and learning manager roles.
