Newsweek has announced their annual rankings for the UK’s Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® list, and Chainlink Labs, a software services company that is the leading contributing developer to Chainlink, the industry-leading Web3 services platform, was ranked #12. The 2023 Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces are the result of a collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company.
The results were determined after surveying more than 600,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 10 to more than 5,000. The list recognizes companies that have created a workplace where employees feel respected, inspired, and appreciated and are at the center of the business model.
“This recognition in the UK underscores the importance of our continuous effort to cultivate and invest in a global team,” said Giovana Totini, Chief People Officer at Chainlink Labs. “This approach not only benefits our employees but also positively impacts our company and the broader ecosystem.”
The key areas included in the analysis are based on how well companies demonstrate the areas within the Spark Model as defined by BPI including Systemic Collaboration, Positive Vision of the Future, Alignment of values, Respect, and Killer Achievement. How engaged employees are, how positive they feel about their workplace, and how committed they are to the organization’s success were all identified and analyzed to identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces.
“With the dynamic workforce and competition for top talent, more companies are recognizing the importance of employee engagement and commitment”, said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek. “The workplaces that have demonstrated a commitment to their employees in 2023 are more likely to attract top talent and deliver strong business outcomes.”
“Attracting and retaining top talent continues to be a challenge and top priority of executive leadership” said Louis Carter, CEO, Best Practice Institute. “The companies on this list have committed to listening intently to their employees and then creating a better workplace where employees love to come to work.”
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 UK headquartered firms and companies with a strong UK presence that are based overseas.)
