Glassdoor has announced the winners of its annual Employees’ Choice Awards honoring the Highest Rated CEOs in 2016 across North America and parts of Europe. Unlike any other workplace awards, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards are based solely on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback, by completing a company review, on whether they approve or disapprove of their CEO, along with insight into their job, work environment and employer over the past year.
This year, Glassdoor has expanded its Employees’ Choice Awards across six countries, honoring the Highest Rated CEOs across the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands. In addition, there are two categories in the U.S.: 50 Highest Rated CEOs (honoring CEOs at employers with 1,000 or more employees) and 25 Highest Rated CEOs at Small & Medium Companies (honoring CEOs at employers with less than 1,000 employees). Winners are ranked based on their overall CEO approval rating from employees during the past year. For reporting simplicity, approval ratings are rounded to the nearest whole number though actual calculations extend beyond the thousandth to determine rank.
