LinkedIn MENA released a report highlighting the region's top 20 employers most demanded and popular with job-seekers and employees in the region. 

The LinkedIn InDemand list represents the most sought-after employers in the region based on the user-behaviour of LinkedIn's members.

InDemand measures the behaviour of professionals as they explore their career options on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn MENA said these rankings "are calculated using a combination of the following factors: reach (non-employees connecting to current employees, and non-employees viewing employee profiles); jobs (non-employees viewing jobs and applying for jobs); and, engagement (non-employees visiting the company and career pages, and following the company). 

According to this year’s list, the top represented sectors in the rankings include oil and gas, real estate and construction, and telecommunications and technology.
