The 50 highest-rated CEOs
Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, has released its annual highest-rated CEOs survey, and some familiar names made the list. There were surprises, including the fact that only one woman, Victoria’s Secret CEO Sharen Turney, made the top 50. HP CEO Meg Whitman, the only woman on last year’s report at No. 24, did not crack the top 50 this year.
“While anyone can assume a position in leadership, not everyone garners their employees’ support for how they lead the company. The CEOs who are most successful in gaining employee approval are those who paint a clear vision of what the company is setting out to achieve and how it’s going to get there,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “To be recognized by your employees as a strong leader also comes as a result of having a solid company culture that helps employees foster the skills necessary to move business forward and meet the needs of customers.”
