The awards honour the Highest Rated CEOs in 2017 across North America and Europe. The awards are based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review, about their CEOs leadership, along with insight into their job, work environment and employer over the past year.
Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO, said, “CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honours they can receive because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day.”
“We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.”
