In a survey ranking the top 3 CEOs of the world, there is a huge chance that the front-runners would be the tech giants who have made household names of innovators like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and Tim Cook.
In Glassdoor’s report on 2017’s 100 leading CEOs, however, none of those esteemed names have made it to the top five. Musk does land on #8, and Zuckerberg occupies the tenth slot. Cook is at a low #53, while Bezos is nowhere to be found. The one tech company that made it to the top five, Fast Enterprises, is a low-profile but profitable software solution firm that services solid, essential, if ‘unglamorous’ businesses like accounting and relocation.
What distinguishes Glassdoor’s survey of its top 100 CEOs from others is that it measures the leadership performance of its winners through the eyes of the employees. The survey participants gave their answers anonymously, their identities safeguarded. Each leader who was included in the list is managing a US-or-European-based corporation that has an average of 1000 workers. Their management styles, ways of doing business, and campaigns to take the company to the next high level are the ones that are being assessed and not just their capabilities of turning a profit or increasing the stock value in the market.
Take a look at the top 3 CEOs who were ranked highest by their employees. While some of them may not ring a bell, their workforce and other shareholders do respect and admire them. Because of their track record, excellent performance, and empathic qualities, customers, clients, allies, and other partners also are more than willing to conduct a long-term engagement with them.
