University of Pittsburgh Leadership Forum Announces Study Of The Most Loved Workplaces

The University of Pittsburgh Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum has announced it will launch a study into the Most Loved Workplaces. The Forum will facilitate the study which seeks to help US businesses define the most loved, neutral, and disliked workplaces according to employees. The research aims to help small and mid-sized businesses to understand where and why employees diverge in their feelings toward different workplaces. 

The Forum has selected Louis Carter’s Best Practice Institute to facilitate the study, an award-winning leadership development center, think tank, and research institute. The main objective of the partnership is to help leaders build an improved work culture that employees will love and to empower companies to better support their current and future employees through these unprecedented times.

The study will initially last for one year and will begin with various companies participating in an employee survey that was created through years of research. The results of the survey will be made available to every company participating, allowing them a rare insight into the successes and necessary improvements needed to be considered a Most Loved Workplace.

The University of Pittsburgh’s Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum is recognized for being a world-class institution where leaders and aspiring leaders can gather to advance the art and science of leadership, which is partnered with Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and world-renowned expert in leadership development Frances Hesselbein. Louis Carter is best known for his work as a bestselling author on leadership, as well as his experience as a leading executive coach, and an advisor to Fortune 500 companies, the Pentagon, and the United States Department of Justice.

The study will be redistributed during the year as an opportunity to evaluate any progress that companies make as a result of the recommended adjustments to leadership practices. Qualifying companies will then be eligible to receive the Most Loved Workplace Certification, a badge that will significantly help businesses to recruit, maintain employee satisfaction, and build reputation.

It has been a particularly challenging time for businesses that have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, with many adapting to new hybrid work environments that leaders are still trying to navigate and understand from the perspective of employees. 

Speaking about the study, Carter said: “This partnership in many ways brings much of what I have built over the past 15 years with Best Practice Institute full circle, by finally recognizing organizations that, as Frances always taught, focused on Values-Based Leadership.”

He added: “Her inspiration for creating the Most Loved Workplace program is immeasurable, and this partnership solidifies that for organizations who have built a culture based on respect and values.”

As well as receiving certification, companies that do successfully complete the study will be featured in the December 2021 issue of Leader To Leader, the official publication of the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum. The Louis Carter Best Practice Institute will also publish the results of the study, which will give valuable insight into what exactly makes employees love their place of work. The study also aims to continue beyond 2021 with the ultimate goal of surveying more than 10 million employees within five years.
