Glassdoor announce 2018’s Top CEOs

Who are the top CEOs in the world, and what is the best way to measure that? The very existence of Donald Trump tells us that the Fortune 500 isn’t anything to go by, so why not turn the power over to the employees? Glassdoor has released its definitive list of CEOs where employees are the ones who have a say in the rankings.

Eric S. Yuan of Zoom Video Communications sits comfortably at the top spot in the US with an employee approval rating of 99% – not too shabby! The list is split into large(+1000 employees) and small/medium (<1000) companies and has segregated lists for the U.S, Great Britain, Germany and Canada. You can check out the top five in both lists in our blog post here!
