Google has been named the best foreign employer in Korea among young prospective workers.
The tech giant received over 70 percent of the votes in a poll of 2,007 college students and jobseekers by job search portal Job Korea from Feb. 11 to 18, making it almost three times more popular than second-place Apple Korea with 25.9 percent.
Starbucks Coffee came in third with 17 percent, followed by Nike (15 percent), Yuhan-Kimberly (14 percent), BMW Korea (12 percent) and Louis Vuitton Korea (8 percent).
The main strengths of these foreign employers are the benefits they offer and an open corporate culture rather than high salaries.
Google offers free breakfast and lunch at a cafeteria and has a massage parlor and a game room for its employees. It also gives employees up to 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and a month of paid paternity leave.
