The Best Practice Institute (BPI) has completed its 2022 Most Loved Workplace® certification program, culminating in the publication of America’s Top 100 and the U.K.’s Top 100 Most Loved Workplace lists in Newsweek Magazine. Now going into its 3rd year, the annual program identifies the top companies where employees are happiest and most satisfied at work. The initiative will include a list of the top 100 Most Loved Workplaces, along with profiles of the winners, that will appear in an October issue of Newsweek, as well as other articles based on the research and ongoing conversations with CEOs and CHROs of the top companies.
Over 300 companies achieved their Most Loved Workplace certifications in 2022, meaning they scored within the threshold needed in the five areas measured in the Love of Workplace Index™ Pulse Validation Survey. The results were determined after surveying more than 1.4 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000. Of those companies, those that rank in the Top 100 for their respective locations is published in the annual Newsweek Magazine issues. The lists recognize the top companies that put respect, caring, and appreciation for their employees at the center of their business model and, in doing so, have earned the loyalty and respect of the people who work for them.
“The companies on these lists represent the best at placing love at the center of their employee’s experience,” said Louis Carter, CEO, Best Practice Institute. “The number of applications this year and analysis of survey data reinforces our original findings that love is the strongest predictor of the strength of a company’s culture, employee engagement, and satisfaction.”
Dell Technologies was the #1 company on America’s Most Loved Workplaces® list in 2022, while Virgin Atlantic Airways placed #1 on the U.K. list. The list includes companies such as Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Ally, ChenMed, A&E Networks, TaylorMade Golf Company, Selfridges, PerkinElmer, among others.
“We’re focused on building a workplace where team members can thrive both personally and professionally so they can be their best and do their best work,” said Jenn Saavedra, Chief Human Resources Officer at Dell Technologies. “To us, that means ensuring team members feel included and celebrated for who they are while helping them find balance, connection, and achievement. We love seeing team members grow their careers here at Dell – learn new skills, build relationships, and above all, follow their passions. It’s this type of support that fosters our innovation at Dell as we work together toward a common purpose to build technologies that drive human progress.”
To become certified, companies were evaluated and scored as follows: 35 percent of the initial score was based on employee survey responses; 25 percent was derived from analysis of external public ratings from sites such as Comparably, Careerbliss, Glassdoor, Indeed and Google; and 40 percent came from direct interviews with and written responses from company officials. With Newsweek, additional research was conducted into every company on the list to determine the final list of 100 companies and their ranking.
