Celebrating a leader’s impact on their team and operations, Glassdoor has released its annual Employees Choice Awards. The company has recognized retailer H-E-B for its brand excellence, bestowing CEO Charles C. Butt a place in the top 20 companies of the 100 listed.
This year’s award marks the third placement for Charles. Ranked last year at #19, Charles has moved up for his business acumen to place #16. This also makes H-E-B the highest ranked retailer on the list in general.
Employees ranked H-E-B with 4.1 out of a possible 5 stars with 97 percent of those surveyed approving of Charles as CEO. 85 percent stated that they would recommend H-E-B as a place to work.
From the thousands of reviews left by employees on Glassdoor, H-E-B is lauded amongst its team members for its flexibility, benefits, company culture, and career advancement, to name a few qualities.
“CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors they can receive, because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day. I congratulate all of the winners on this significant honor,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor Co-Founder and CEO. “We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.”
Glassdoor stated that its annual list is compiled based on anonymous employee reviews of their respected companies, using a proprietary algorithm. Employees rate the sentiment around their CEO’s leadership and workplace attributes like senior management. Employees are also specifically asked to report whether they approve, disapprove, or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.
According to Glassdoor’s research, highly-rated CEOs are directly linked to companies with great cultures. The company noted that there is also a strong link between CEO approval rating and financial performance.
