So this is from the MGMAT Sentence Correction book but I fail to understand how this sentence is correct when the comparison is between an employee's attributes to other employees attributes yet this sentence is correct as per MGMAT.

"Hugo is widely acknowledged to be our best employee, because he works harder and more creatively than anyone else in the company".

Shouldn't this instead be - because he works harder and more creatively than DOES anyone else in the company??

Trying to understand what I'm missing here.

Thanks,

Just my 2 cents : I think we can definitely understand what the sentence tells us about. No ambiguity even when you don't write down the "DOES".
