The businesses on our list are in dozens of different industries and vary widely in size. But they all share a set of values, and we are proud to recognize them.”

Overall, Range achieved a 70.0 score and scored a high mark of 82.9 for the social category score. For more information on the in-depth rating methodology, visit Newsweek’s presentation here.
