“We’re honored to be recognized for fostering an entrepreneurial culture powered by a networked organizational structure where team members can openly voice their ideas and deliver creative solutions to help our customers digitally transform and succeed,” said Larry Solomon, Chief People Officer, SVP, at EPAM Systems. “Our people are key to our success as a rapidly growing global company. We value emotional intelligence and regularly encourage feedback to make improvements and ensure our employees have the resources needed to engineer the future for our customers, and lead community initiatives to improve the world around us.”

EPAM offers a flexible work environment with numerous tools to help team members develop new skills, find mentors, and connect with colleagues worldwide. From career development opportunities to volunteer programs and employee discounts, employees are given the resources to thrive both professionally and personally.  

“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.

In 2020, EPAM launched #TogetherAsOne, an initiative to quickly mobilize, give back and help fight the pandemic. Significant measures were made to ensure both the well-being of employees and local and global communities by acting proactively and developing open-source solutions.

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.

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 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
