Horizon Therapeutics plc (Nasdaq: HZNP) today announced that is has been named to Newsweek’s inaugural Most Loved Workplaces list for 2021, ranking among the top 100 companies recognized for employee happiness and satisfaction at work. Out of the companies recognized in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical category, Horizon ranked No. 1.
“At Horizon, our employees are at the heart of what we do which is why we are especially honored to be named to Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces,” said Tim Walbert, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Horizon. “Ensuring that employees share in our mission to support patients and the communities where we live and work drives our people-focused culture and remains a critical piece to our success.”
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. Companies were also evaluated by external public ratings from sites such as Comparably, Careerbliss, Glassdoor, Indeed and Google, and 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.
“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 full Newsweek list of 2021’s Most Loved Workplaces will be featured in the magazine’s Oct. 29 print edition and is currently available online.
