La plus vs le plus

c’est le résultat de l’entreprise qui affecté ... the most heavily and I wrote la plus lourdement since l thought the company was the most heavily affected. L’entreprise is feminine hence my use of la vs le. Why was this wrong? Thanks for your help!

Since "le plus lourdement" is an adverb, there is no agreement required. You always use "le" here.

I guess it is the result that le plus refers to -- hence masculine. If used in an adverbial manner it is masculine in any case.
