What distinguishes popular executives?
Good leadership is not only positive for employees: too Company benefit from popular executives in the course of employer branding, which they can use to convince coveted professionals.
But to understand what makes the most popular CEOs better than others, one has to look closely at how the ranking is achieved.
How does the ranking come about?
The Glassdoor job portal has selected 10's most popular managers in Germany based on employee reviews. BMW CEO Harald Krüger is in the lead, followed by the CEOs of MHP and Accenture.
Unlike other awards, the award is based solely on voluntary and anonymous feedback from employees who post an employer rating on the Glassdon job and career platform and answer the question whether they are in favor of their CEO or not.
The most popular executives were determined on the basis of their general advocacy rate - in Germany for the fourth time. In addition to the volume, the contents of all the audited valuations of employees employed in Germany between the 2 were also considered. May 2017 and the 1. May 2018 were submitted.
Companies with at least 20 ratings for management attributes by employees based in Germany were considered. For the sake of clarity, the managing director ratings are rounded up. However, the calculations to determine the rankings take into account values in excess of the thousandth.
The employees have decided
CEOs are the ultimate decision-makers, strategists and visionaries. Not only to investors and stakeholders, but also to their employees, they have an enormous responsibility. Managers should act as role models for their employees.
A good CEO inspires employees, helps them reach their full potential, and enables breakthrough innovation. Good leadership is therefore largely based on employee expectations.
Representing companies from different industries
The most popular managers of German employees come from a wide range of sectors: the automotive industry, software and hardware companies, management consultancy, the furniture industry, online mail order companies and research.
Six of the companies were already in the ranking last year. Noteworthy: Despite the crisis in the automotive industry, another CEO of a car company is at the top of the ranking.
