About TOP employer

“TOP employer” is the most influential, widest and most popular annual top and rating database of the best and most attractive employers in Latvia, which is based on the evaluations of employees (job seekers, current and former employees). The best employers are identified in 12 different categories – both among companies that come to the minds of employees first (the main category) and among companies offered for voting in several business sectors and regions of Latvia, selected according to a certain methodology. Voting for employers takes place in an online survey, which is held at the beginning of the year and usually attracts a significant number of respondents (17 300 respondents on the last survey).

The TOP3 employers in each category receive a special “TOP employer” digital stamp that the company can use for employee recruitment activities, such as the career section of its company’s website, published job postings, events, the workplace and elsewhere. In addition, the other employers that are ranked on TOP50 list of the main category (Top-of-mind) also get a digital stamp, which confirms being among the best employers in Latvia.



The project has been developed by the leading Latvian recruitment company Alma Career Latvia (previosly known as CV-Online Latvia) for 13 years. The main goal of the project is to help employers determine their position in the labor market from the perspective of employees and candidates, and to promote their employer’s brand, while giving employees the opportunity to participate in the development of the labor market by evaluating different employers, be ambassadors of their company’s employer image and create useful informative material that would help them to choose their next job and develop their career.
