“Can you imagine working for a company where almost every employee approves of the boss’s decisions? It turns out that’s the case at Apple,” Jacquelyn Smith reports for Forbes.
“With a 97% approval rating, America’s favorite boss this year is Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook, according to online jobs and careers community Glassdoor.com,” Smith reports. “Glassdoor just released its latest ratings of CEOs. The list is based on reviews voluntarily posted by employees who answer the following question: “Do you approve of the way this person is handling the job of leading this company?” The results are calculated similar to presidential approval ratings, and the 25 top-rated chief executives are honored as America’s Favorite Bosses.”
Smith reports, “Cook, who was made chief executive of Apple when the late Steve Jobs resigned in August, 2011, impressed his employees quickly. ‘There are likely several reasons that contributed to Cook’s high approval rating,’ says Samantha Zupan, a Glassdoor spokesperson. ‘For one, Apple employees speak about what a great job he and the executive team are doing leading the company. Another reason is that employees had time to adjust to the idea that Cook would eventually take over the reins from iconic tech visionary Steve Jobs. Lastly, many employees speak highly about the company culture, which continues to be fostered under Cook.'”
