Best Places to Work in Europe

To be recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Europe, a company must first rank very highly among other companies of the same size in their own country. Then, the highest-ranking companies of every size in each country are ranked in a single European list. Of the 3,350 participating companies — small, medium, large and multinational — only 150 Best Workplaces in Europe have been selected. 

More than 2.6 million European employees were asked to describe how they felt about their work environment. They ranked their employer on statements ranging from ‘This is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work’ to ‘I feel I receive a fair share of the profits my company makes.'

Newsweek’s Top 100 UK’s Most Loved Workplaces

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 2 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 100,000.

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.
