These are the 25 best CEOs to work for as voted by British staff

Carolyn mccall fullReutersEasyjet’s CEO Carolyn McCall is the only female CEO in the top 25.

Glassdoor, the massive job-hunting website that lets you see staff reviews of their own companies, just unveiled its annual Employees’ Choice Awards for the Highest Rated CEOs of 2015.

Unlike any other workplace awards, the Employees’ Choice Awards are based solely on the input of employees who anonymously and voluntarily provide feedback via the Glassdoor company review survey.

“Each CEO approval rating takes into account the quantity and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews shared by UK-based employees between 22 April, 2014 and 21 April, 2015. At a minimum, CEOs considered for the UK list must have received at least 20 reviews during the eligibility period,” Glassdoor says.

“Gaining the trust and approval of an entire workforce is one of the most difficult yet rewarding responsibilities for any leader,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder in a statement.

Business Insider has a round-up of the top 25 CEOs that British employees love so much, including the bosses of overseas companies that employ people here.
