EY Celebrates Its Second Year as the Most Attractive Professional Services Employer

Did someone say attractive? No, I don't mean attractive young men in various states of undress, I mean attractive, as in if you have to work in professional services, I guess working for EY will do.

So every year, Universum conducts this study, asking business students from the world's most prestigious schools which employer they haven't even worked for is the most attractive. The World’s Most Attractive Employer is the result and once again, EY came out on top.

Before you ask, why yes, of course there is a press release celebrating this achievement:

Petter Nylander, Universum’s Global CEO, says:

“It's clear that EY truly understands what talented people want from their career. By being consistent and very active in communicating a relevant message globally that resonates with their ideal target talent group, I am not surprised to see EY ranked number one in the professional services industry and number two overall in the World’s Most Attractive Employers 2014 rankings among business students.”

EY Global Chairman and CEO Mark Weinberger is excited too, because who doesn't love a little free press?

“Our purpose at EY is to build a better working world for our 190,000-strong workforce. We are committed to investing in great people and developing inclusive leaders who can build the highest performing teams across the globe. As we continue to build a distinctive brand through our people, it’s an honor once again to feature so highly in this influential ranking.”

EY did not just rank the highest among professional services employers, but all employers. The only employer more attractive than EY, according to Universum, is Google. GOOGLE. Now, check out this Top 5:

WOW. Do you mean to tell me business students hold the Big 4 in high regard? I would have never known that without this survey.
