LONDON, 20 October 2023 – K2 Partnering Solutions has earned a coveted spot in the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® list for the UK in 2023.
The list, which was developed by Newsweek and Best Practice Institute (BPI), recognizes companies that have created a workplace where employees are at the center of the business model and feel respected, inspired and appreciated.
“Being on this prestigious list is an honor for K2 Partnering Solutions and underscores our inclusive global culture,” said Antonio Gulino, CEO of K2. “Our employees represent 54 nationalities and speak 58 languages, and they love collaborating with their international colleagues to solve business challenges for clients from London to Tokyo via San Francisco. Our goals and career opportunities are transparent, so employees know from day one which competencies they need to develop to achieve success.”
The Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® for the UK and other markets were determined after surveying more than 2m employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 100,000. K2 ranked in 87th place for the UK.
Researchers analyzed 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.
“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.”
“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.”
To identify the top 100 companies for the Newsweek ranking, employers were evaluated and scored as follows: 35% of the initial score was based on employee survey responses; 25% was derived from analysis of external public ratings from sites such as Comparably, Careerbliss, Glassdoor, Indeed and Google; and 40% 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.
