CLEVELAND — Editor's note: The video in the player above is from a previously published, unrelated story.

Northeast Ohio has a reason to celebrate as one of the area's top businesses has been named to a prestigious list by Newsweek. 

Eaton Corporation, based in Beachwood, has taken a spot on the Most Loved Workplaces in the U.S. list. The Northeast Ohio business placed 74th and is one of just three companies from Ohio to get special recognition from Newsweek. 

"A Most Loved Workplace is focused squarely on the degree to which employees have a positive feeling about their employer," says Louis Carter, CEO of the Best Practice Institute, a leadership development center and think tank that developed the research underpinning the rankings in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh. In other words: "high emotional connection or love for" their place of employment.

Eaton, specializing in electrical and electronic manufacturing, is described by the publication as a company that is "community focused and socially aware." 

"One big benefit: Employees get paid time to volunteer in their neighborhoods. Making money is the thing, of course, but it is not the only thing," says a description of Eaton on Newsweek's website. 

Newsweek surveyed more than 800,000 employees from businesses nationwide to find the most beloved companies across the United States. Employees were asked about loyalty, diversity, company culture, benefits and more.
