NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2016) - Isaac Oates, founder and CEO of Justworks, an HR and benefits platform for small business, has been awarded Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEO recognition for 2016. Glassdoor®, the world's most transparent jobs and recruiting marketplace, released its annual report highlighting the Highest Rated CEOs, this year recognizing top leaders in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among CEOs recognized in the U.S. at SMB companies, Oates received an impressive approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Justworks employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
"It's an honor to be recognized by my team and by Glassdoor for my leadership," said Isaac Oates, founder and CEO of Justworks. "It's been my goal to make Justworks one of the best places to work and learn. I'm thankful for an incredible group of employees who have helped create the strong company culture we have today. Justworks is committed to making it easier and safer for small businesses to grow, and I'm proud that my colleagues share in that passion and enthusiasm everyday."
"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."
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.
