Google CEO Larry Page is the highest-rated CEO of 2015, according to Glassdoor. Page displaces Jeff Weiner, who was last year's no. 1.
Last year, Page made it to the annual list at no. 10 with a rating of 93 percent. This year, his score jumped by four percentage points to 97 percent, which means 97 percent of Google's employees agree with the way Page is running the company. The result is not surprising, given the fact that Google was also ranked by its employees as the best company to work for, according to Glassdoor.
Tying up for first place is Nike's Mark Parker, who also received a 97 percent approval rating. He is followed by H E B's Charles Butt, with a rating of 96 percent.
Other tech CEOs figure prominently in the list, including Mark Zuckerberg, who placed at no. 4 with a 95 percent rating. Zuckerberg was the highest-rated CEO in 2013, followed by Weiner in 2014. Weiner is now down to no. 12 with a 93 percent rating.
Placing right after Zuckerberg is Ultimate Software's Scott Scherr (95 percent), Apple's Tim Cook (94 percent), Expedia's Dara Khosrowshahi (94 percent), and Salesforce's Marc Benioff (94 percent.)
Also included in the list are John Legere of T-Mobile (93 percent), Jeremy Stoppelman of Yelp (91 percent), Frank D' Souza of Cognizant Technology Solutions (91 percent), Thomas Richards of CDW (91 percent), Brad Smith of Intuit (91 percent) Dr. Vishal Sikka of Infosys (91 percent), Brian Krzanich of Intel (90 percent), Shantanu Narayen of Adobe (89 percent), and Brian Chesky of Airbnb (89 percent).
"Gaining the trust and approval of an entire workforce is one of the most difficult yet rewarding responsibilities for any leader," says Robert Hohman, CEO and co-founder of Glassdoor, in a statement. "Winning a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award is a significant achievement for any CEO regardless of fame, fortune or company size."
The list does not include female CEOs, a fact that mirrors the gender gap in the technology industry and in the executive management ranks. Last year, Marissa Mayer of Yahoo made it to Glassdoor's top 50 list of best CEOs at no. 49 and with an approval rating of 79 percent. The other female CEO to make it to the list was Victoria's Secret's Sharen Turney, who scored 85 percent. Both Mayer and Turney did not make it to the list this year.
The list was created based on anonymous reviews sent by employees to Glassdoor. Only the CEOs of companies with more than 1,000 employees are eligible to be reviewed, and only those who have more than 100 reviews are considered for the list.
