Every year, Glassdoor hosts the Employees’ Choice Awards and honors the top rated CEOs across businesses in North America and parts of Europe. These awards are based on the input of employees who complete a company review and answer questions about their CEO’s leadership, insights into their job, work environment and employer over the past year. Once again, Jim Kavanaugh, CEO of World Wide Technology, was named on the list with a 91% approval rating by employees.
