What do popular CEOs do better?
To find out what makes the popular CEOs better at leadership, look at the methodology used to identify the executives - Top 3 Alain Caparros of REWE, Harald Krüger of BMW and Mark Weinberger of Ernst and Young.
In contrast to other awards, the award is based solely on the voluntary and anonymous feedback from employees who give feedback on the job and career platform Glassdoor Employer Assessment, assess their CEO, and answer the question of whether or not they support it.
The most popular executives were identified based on their overall advocacy rate last year and also received the Glassdoor Award for employee satisfaction - in Germany for the second time this year. Included was the amount and content of all audited valuations made by employees employed in Germany between the 2. May 2015 and the 1. May 2016 were submitted.
Were considered Company with at least 20 evaluations of the managing director and the management level. 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.
This is what the employees say
If you look at the criteria by which the employees assess their bosses, you will find aspects such as respect, a good working environment, salary, security, good career prospects, promotion of talents or above-average employee offers. Ultimately, this shows that good leadership is oriented towards the wishes of the employees.
What is interesting, however, is that the most popular managers among German employees come from very different sectors such as manufacturing, management consultancies, insurance or trading companies.
Chefs from the automotive industry are at the forefront - only in Germany
Contrary to the other surveyed countries, however, three CEOs from the Top 10 are active in the automotive industry (at BMW, Daimler and Audi). On top of this are the CEOs of ZF Friedrichshafen and Robert Bosch - two companies active in the supplier sector, among others.
Five of the companies were already on the list last year - Robert Bosch, Daimler and SAP with their current managers, BMW and the alliance with their previous managers. Harald Krüger of BMW and Oliver Bäte of the alliance have the same rank as their predecessors last year (place 2 and 7).
