L&T tops the charts on following on LinkedIn

Ahead of conglomerates like RIL, Aditya Birla Group, Tata Group, Adani Group


Larsen & Toubro, India’s leading EPC projects, manufacturing, defence and services conglomerate, has topped the LinkedIn in terms of most followed Indian conglomerate, leaving behind Reliance Industries, Aditya Birla Group, Tata Group and Adani Group.

L&T with its 20 lakhs 5 thousand plus followers is the top most followed conglomerate, with Reliance Industries followed the second most at over 18 lakhs 98 thousand followers, over 15 lakhs 2 thousand followers for Aditya Birla Group, 4 lakh 83 thousand plus for Tata Group, over 3 lakh 41 thousand followers for Adani Group and over One lakh 58 thousand followers for Godrej Group, Linkedin data showed as on Sept 7, 2020.

Larsen & Toubro spokesperson said: “We have grown this follower base through consistent and targeted messaging. The content strategy for a B2B conglomerate like L&T needs to be highly focused and different from a typical FMCG or a consumer products brand play book. We focussed on our strengths and leadership in our areas of business, while still maintaining approachability and creating engaging stories which impact people.”

“We have realised that updates on big projects and achievements, and messages from our leadership consistently garner great response and engagement from the followers. Another message that resonates well with our audience is about Make in India achievement - a pride in building the things that help build the Nation, whether in infrastructure or technology and defence,” the spokesperson added.  

The companies have been using this social media network to reach to professionals, students, potential employees to keep them updated about thoughts of their leadership, their achievements, milestones, HR initiatives, updates on campus recruitments etc. LinkedIn (90 per cent) is the top social media platform preferred by B2B marketers in 2019 followed by Facebook (77 per cent) and Twitter (63 per cent), data by Digital Marketing Community showed. While most of the working professionals are still working remotely, there is a huge spike in social media engagements on professional network LinkedIn. LinkedIn insights show that globally, there has been a 50% year-on-year growth in content sharing, between March-June 2020. While the job searches and career related posts are the most engaged content on the platform, professionals watched nearly 4x the amount of LinkedIn Learning content in June 2020 than they did a year ago.

India has second largest LinkedIn user base at 68 million after United States that has close to 170 million users, July 2020 data by Statista showed. Globally, there are more than 706 million professionals across 200 countries who turn to the network to connect, learn, and plan for their careers.
