KnowBe4 has announced it has been named in Newsweek’s annual Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces list and ranked no.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 recognises companies that have created a workplace where employees feel respected, inspired, and appreciated and are at the centre of the business model.
“KnowBe4 is elated to be recognised as a top most loved workplace in the UK for the very first time,” said Ani Banerjee, chief human resources officer, KnowBe4. “We work hard to foster a workplace culture that is people-centric and embraces our core values of extreme ownership, radical transparency and fun.
“This recognition is especially monumental because in September 2023, KnowBe4 opened its new UK headquarters in Leeds. Our UK-based employees play an instrumental role in the overall success at KnowBe4 as the organisation continues to expand.”
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 organisation’s success were analysed to identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces.
“With the rapidly changing workplace and competition for top talent, more companies are recognising 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.”
