The annual IT Best Employers Survey 2011 finds out the best IT companies to work for in India.

The survey consists of two parts: HR round and employee satisfaction. In the HR round, companies are given scores based on their HR practices.

The final score is a combination of HR score (20 per cent weightage) and employee satisfaction or E-SAT score (80 per cent weightage).

Companies have started hiring as business environment improved in FY 2010-11, finds the survey.

This led to a significant jump in attrition, from 13 per cent in 2009-10 to 19 per cent this year (2010-11), one of the biggest jumps recorded in one year over two decades.

Here's a look at the top 20 IT employers according to a survey by Dataquest, in association with CyberMedia Research (CMR):

1. HCL Infosystems

HCL Infosystems has emerged as the best employer among IT companies in India.

HCL Infosys' 'Employee First' philosophy along with other highly rated parameters like work culture, appraisals, job content, salary, training and managing slowdown won it the numero uno position, says the survey.
