Grant Thornton Named One of 50 ‘World’s Most Attractive Global Employers’

A survey of 240,000 business and engineering students from 12 of the world’s largest economies named Grant Thornton one of the 50 ‘World’s most attractive global employers’. Survey was conducted as part of the Universum Annual Student Survey.

Nelson Petrosyan, Managing Partner of Grant Thornton Georgia said: “Thanks to the students who voted. This is fantastic recognition and is testament to all of our people around the world. Grant Thornton member firms are based in 130 countries with over 40,000 people who make up the Grant Thornton global organisation.

“At Grant Thornton Georgia we strive to develop and maintain a positive workplace culture for our people,” said Nelson Petrosyan. “Our firm strives to provide a workplace where our people can unlock their potential for growth, both at work, at home and in their community.”

In 37th position on the Universum list, Grant Thornton is “distinguished as an ideal employer in the professional services sector.”

The rankings are based on the opinions of business and engineering students from top universities in the world’s 12 largest economies: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, UK and US. The research was conducted by Universum, a leading global research and employer branding consultancy. To be considered in the World’s Most Attractive Employer ranking, an employer must be in the top 90% of the Universum Ideal Employer ranking in at least six of the twelve largest economies. The results are then weighted based on the gross domestic product of each market.
