Mythical Pizza Certified as a Most Loved Workplace
Most Loved Workplaces employees are happiest and most satisfied at work

NEW YORK – JUNE 10TH, 2024 – Mythical Pizza has become certified as a Most Loved Workplace® backed by the research and analysis of Best Practice Institute (BPI). Most Loved Workplace® validation provides the most comprehensive look at workplace sentiment for organizations today.

"On behalf of our incredible team at Mythical Pizza, I am honored to accept the Most Loved Workplace® certification. This award is a testament to the dedication, creativity, and collaboration of our amazing crew members who make every day extraordinary. We are committed to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and empowered. This recognition fuels our passion to continue delivering exceptional experiences to our customers and creating a workplace where love and positivity thrive," said Antonio Burgess, Founding Director and CEO of Mythical Pizza.

Mythical Pizza has been certified as a certified Most Loved Workplace® because of its exceptional practices in fostering collaboration, positive vision, respect, support, alignment of values, and employee programs. Collaboration is the cornerstone of our success, with seamless teamwork across departments and partners. Employees are driven by a shared vision of innovation and customer satisfaction, fueled by open communication and empowerment. We prioritize respect and inclusivity, ensuring every voice is heard and valued. Our commitment to employee well-being is reflected in personalized development plans, flexible schedules, and wellness initiatives. These values, embodied by their CEO, create a supportive and rewarding workplace where every team member can thrive.

Most Loved Workplaces® certify companies where employees are the happiest and most satisfied at work. Mythical Pizza became certified as a Most Loved Workplace based on its scores on the Love of Workplace Index™ which surveyed employees on various elements around employee satisfaction and sentiment including the level of respect, collaboration, support, and sense of belonging they feel inside the company.

"I started Most Loved Workplaces out of inspiration from my community of people who consciously place love for their employees at the center of their business model," said Louis Carter, the founder, and CEO of BPI and a social/organizational psychologist, thought leader, entrepreneur, and author. Carter's book, "In Great Company: How to Spark Peak Performance by Creating an Emotionally Connected Workplace," identifies the specific areas needed to become a highly respected, reputable organization where people love to work with each other – a Most Loved Workplace.

Backed by BPI, in its original research that created MLW criteria, Most Loved Workplaces surveyed more than 175 companies and more than 3,000 executives across the United States, the Middle East/Northern Africa, and Southeast Asia. They found that productivity rises as employee sentiment increases, with 94 percent of responders saying they did three to four times more work for a company they loved and 95 percent saying they stayed at companies they loved three to four times longer. Most Loved Workplaces certification is the most valid method to determine employee experience and recognize a great workplace.
