SAN JOSE, Calif., 22 Oct 2021
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) was featured in Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list for 2021, ranking at #7 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 global team is passionate about delivering innovative electronic design software, hardware and IP solutions for customers and having fun while doing it,” said Cadence president and incoming CEO, Anirudh Devgan. “Even in the midst of unprecedented challenges due to the pandemic, our employees have exemplified incredible resilience and lifted one another up. We’ve worked tirelessly to ensure our employees have felt supported during this time, and making the Most Loved Workplaces list is a testament to our strong employee culture where we collaborate as One Cadence—One Team.”
“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. “Love of workplace or Most Loved Workplace (MLW) is the intersection of intense feelings toward aspects of a company, perception of how your company feels about you, and attitudes toward respect and treatment of employees. Our study proves that intense amorous feelings for the workplace are a greater predictor of organizational outcomes such as organizational commitment and perceived willingness to produce more for the company.”
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 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% 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. (The list includes both U.S. firms and companies with a strong U.S. presence that are based overseas.)
