Google has retained the top position as the best employer in both categories -- business and engineering -- for the fourth year in a row, according to global employer branding firm Universum's global talent attraction index, 'The World's Most Attractive Employers 2012'.

This is the only global index of employer attractiveness and highlights the world's most powerful employer brands, those companies that excel in talent attraction and retention.

The World's Most Attractive Employers Index is based on the employer preferences of students from Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, UK, and US.

"The Google fever is still hot! Students are attracted by Google's relaxed and creative work environment, international atmosphere and innovative products. Google offers great benefits and opportunities that are hard for other companies to match," Universum's CEO Petter Nylander said in a statement.

Googlers are well taken care of, but it's the freedom we give our Googlers that makes this such a great place to work, says Google.
