SANTA MONICA, CA — June 8, 2016 — Edmunds.com CEO Avi Steinlauf has been recognized as a Highest Rated CEO for 2016 by Glassdoor®, the world's most transparent jobs and recruiting marketplace. The nod came today in Glassdoor's annual report highlighting the Highest Rated CEOs, which this year recognized top leaders in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among CEOs recognized in the U.S. at small and midsize companies, Steinlauf ranked #22 overall, while receiving an impressive 95 percent approval rating based on anonymous and voluntary reviews from Edmunds employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
"This is a very special honor because it's based on actual feedback from the hardest working and most dedicated co-workers that I could possibly ask for," said Steinlauf. "It's the people that make Edmunds such a unique and successful culture, and I'm truly touched that my colleagues value me as much as I value them."
CEO approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor's online company review survey, which seeks to gain current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, the work environment and the culture. Employees are asked to rate a number of workplace factors like compensation and benefits as well as work-life balance, and asked whether they approve or disapprove of the way their CEO is leading the company. In addition, employees are asked to describe some of the upsides and downsides of working for the company and provide any advice for senior management.
"Inspiring and motivating an entire workforce is an overwhelming, yet imperative, undertaking," said Glassdoor CEO and Co-founder, Robert Hohman. "The CEOs on this list have earned the approval and respect of their employees, evidenced by the feedback shared on Glassdoor. This list celebrates that achievement and challenges all CEOs to aim to do the same."
