If your CEO didn't make the cut this year, here are some potential reasons why:
Since Highest Rated CEOs is an annual list, Glassdoor requires a minimum number of reviews posted during the period of eligibility, which ran from May 2, 2016 to May 1, 2017. To help you track reviews shared by your employees, unlock your Free Employer Account.
This list takes qualitative and quantitative data into account. We assess the quality of the reviews to identify CEOs that truly outshine the rest in the eyes of their employees. If your CEO has a higher approval rating than another, has enough ratings to be considered, and meets those requirements during the period of eligibility, the quality of reviews may have been the determining factor.
Part of our proprietary algorithm assesses consistency of the qualitative and quantitative data shared on Glassdoor by employees. Inconsistent data can, in some cases, impact a CEO's rating for awards purposes.
