CHICAGO — Grant Thornton LLP’s CEO Mike McGuire has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2018. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual report recognizing the top leaders that employees love working for in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
“Grant Thornton’s culture is our firm’s greatest strength, and I view this honor as a reflection of that culture – and our commitment to quality, integrity, diversity and professional excellence,” said McGuire. “We have an amazing team and truly impressive clients. While it’s always an honor to be recognized on behalf of our firm, this recognition is really about the people that work at Grant Thornton; it’s a true team effort and they are the ones who make a difference for our firm and our clients, each and every day.”
When employees submit reviews about their company on Glassdoor, they are asked to rate various factors about their employment experience, including their overall satisfaction and other workplace attributes like senior management. As part of these ratings, employees are also asked to rate whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.
Among chief executives recognized by employees in the U.S., McGuire received an impressive 92 percent approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Grant Thornton employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. Among the 770,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69 percent.
“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgement of exceptional leadership, as it reflects the opinions of the employees who work with a chief executive every day. I congratulate all of this year’s winners on this significant achievement,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “It can be a real recruiting advantage to have a top-rated CEO at the helm of a company who has strong support from his or her employees. The best CEOs are inspiring, trustworthy, innovative and can be great motivators for people to bring their best selves to work.”
