There's a big difference, after all, between workers getting a kick out of free Doritos and whether they truly love and feel in sync with the company they work for."A Most Loved Workplace is focused squarely on the degree to which employees have a positive feeling about their employer," says Louis Carter, CEO of the Best Practice Institute, a leadership development center and think tank that developed the research underpinning the rankings in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh.
Their findings: Employees are as much as four times more likely to be extra productive if they love the company they work for.

Newsweek's ranking of the Most Loved Workplaces 2021 pays tribute to 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.
Based on that research, BPI measured five basic areas, via surveys, to determine how employees feel about where they work to create the 2021 Most Loved Workplaces list: the level of collaboration at the firm; how positive workers are about their future at the company; how much employer values align with employee values; respect at all levels; and career achievement.
All together, more than 800,000 employees were surveyed, at companies ranging in size from less than 50 employees to more than 10,000; additionally several hundred company officials were interviewed
To identify the top 100 companies for the Newsweek ranking, 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
Newsweek then conducted additional research into every company on the list, as well as the top runners up, to determine the final list of 100 companies and their ranking
(The list includes both U.S. firms and companies with a strong U.S. presence that are based overseas.)
The rankings combine quantitative and qualitative analysis that was developed by BPI in partnership with The School of International and Public Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh and featured in the book In Great Company (McGraw-Hill, 2019) by BPI and Most Loved Workplace founder Louis Carter
