Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant Named a 2017 Glassdoor Highest Rated CEO
Monsanto Chairman and CEO Hugh Grant has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award recognizing the Highest Rated CEOs for 2017. Of the 100 CEOs named to the list, Grant ranked No. 50.
Glassdoor is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing job sites. Its annual report honoring the Highest Rated CEOs highlights the top leaders employees love working for, in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe. Among chief executives recognized in the US, Grant received an impressive 93 percent approval rating based on anonymous and voluntary reviews Monsanto employees shared on Glassdoor from May 2, 2016 to May 1, 2017.
“I am humbled by this recognition from my Monsanto colleagues,” said Grant. “It’s a pleasure to work with talented people around the globe to help provide the world’s nourishment, while protecting our limited natural resources.”
“CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors they can receive because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.”
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. Of the 700,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 67 percent.
