Lewis Silkin has performed superbly in a comprehensive ranking of organisations that employees love working for. Newsweek surveyed more than 450,000 employees at organisations ranging in size from 50 employees to over 5,000, to find out how connected and satisfied they are with their place of work.

Newsweek's analysis gauges employee sentiment over five key metrics - how positive workers feel about their future at the company, career progression, value alignment, and levels of respect and collaboration. In addition, areas such as inclusion, diversity, equity and belonging, and organisational response to the pandemic are also analysed.

The list recognises companies that put respect, caring, and appreciation for their employees at the centre of their business model and, in doing so, have earned the loyalty and respect of the people who work for them.

Jo Evans, Chair of the Partnership, said:

"The Newsweek Top 100 identifies organisations whose people have a 'high emotional connection or love for' their workplace, so I'm delighted that our firm has been recognised in this way. As well as doing amazing work with brilliant clients, we also apply our ethos of bravery and kindness to every aspect of life at Lewis Silkin. We encourage our people professionally and personally, we welcome ideas from all, and we listen. That results in a very special place to work."

Nancy Cooper, Newsweek's Global Editor in Chief, said:

"As a result of 'The Great Resignation,' more companies recognize the importance of focusing on employee satisfaction to not only attract but retain top talent," said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek. "The businesses on this year's list clearly demonstrated that commitment."

Lewis Silkin was included in The Sunday Times' list of the '100 Best Companies to work for' in nine consecutive years prior to its final compilation in 2019.

To identify the U.K.'s 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.K. firms and companies with a strong U.K. presence that are based overseas.) The rankings combine quantitative and qualitative analysis developed by BPI in partnership with The School of International and Public Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh.
