PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vivint Smart Home (NYSE: VVNT), a leading smart home company, has been named to Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list for 2021, ranking at #60 among the top 100 companies recognized for employee happiness and satisfaction at work. Produced in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company, the Newsweek list results were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000.
“Our top priority at Vivint is our people, and since re-joining Vivint as CEO earlier this year, one of the things that has really struck me is the incredible level of talent and dedication of our team,” said David Bywater, CEO of Vivint. “We wouldn’t be able to serve our customers and grow at such a rapid rate without our team as a solid foundation. We strive to create the best atmosphere for our employees and are honored to be named to the Most Loved Workplaces list.”
“In the wake of the pandemic, business hit hurdles in terms of retaining and attracting employees – but the companies that made this list are delivering the respect, care, and appreciation that it takes to create a positive workplace that nurtures talent,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek.
“The best way to determine the strength of a company’s culture is by measuring the degree of love employees feel for their workplace,” said Louis Carter, CEO and Founder of Best Practice Institute and Most Loved Workplace.
The full Newsweek list of 2021’s Most Loved Workplaces will be featured in the magazine’s October 29 print edition and is currently available online at https://www.newsweek.com/americas-most-loved-workplaces-2021.
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.)
