NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Global (NYSE: SPGI) was featured today in Newsweek's inaugural Most Loved Workplaces list, ranking among the top 100 companies recognized for employee happiness and satisfaction at work.
"We know that our people are at the heart of everything we do, and we're committed to developing practices and programs that support them in all aspects of work and life," said Dimitra Manis, Chief Purpose Officer for S&P Global. "I am thrilled to see our people-first approach affirmed in this latest recognition from Newsweek and Best Practice Institute."

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.)
