Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Newsweek announced their annual rankings for the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® list and Ansys was ranked among the top 20. 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 two million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 100,000. 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.
“With the rapidly changing workplace 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 the best talent and deliver strong business outcomes.”
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. Employee sentiments and emotions indicating how engaged employees are, how positive they feel about their workplace, and how committed they are to the organization’s success were analyzed to identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces.
"Fully understanding and acting upon employee sentiment, emotion, and recommendations continues to be a challenge and top priority of executive leadership,” said Louis Carter, CEO of Best Practice Institute. “The companies on this list have committed to listening carefully to their employees to create a workplace employees love.”
“Our commitment to investing in employee success correlates to cultivating a supportive, diverse, and inclusive ONE Ansys culture. We’re proud to have a workplace where employees feel they belong and thrive," said Kathleen Weslock, vice president of human resources at Ansys. “Our inclusion on the Top 100 Global Most Loved Workplaces® List exemplifies that our shared values – adaptability, courage, generosity, and authenticity – are at the heart of everything we do.”
