Great workers make for great places to work, and at 23andMe, it all starts at the top with CEO and Co-Founder Anne Wojcicki.
This week Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, made it official and named Anne among its 2019 Employees’ Choice Awards honoring Top CEOs, U.S. SMB. The award highlights leaders who employees love working with, and is unique because winners are selected based on reviews shared on Glassdoor by their employees.
Best Places to Work
It’s the second time in the last six months that 23andMe has been recognized by Glassdoor. Late last year, 23andMe was named as one of the Best Places to Work in 2019 on Glassdoor. Again, like the Top CEO award, that honor was based entirely on reviews from 23andMe employees. This makes these awards even more reputable because there is no self-nominating process. The Top CEO award is based on the opinion of those who know the workplace best, the employees.
“It’s an honor to recognize incredible leaders who, from their employees’ perspectives, exemplify exceptional vision, trust and communication. Glassdoor’s Top CEOs award continues to be more competitive every year,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president and chief operating officer. “I congratulate each leader on their achievement.”
On Glassdoor’s site, employees can anonymously submit reviews about their company. When they submit a review 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. Among the approximately 900,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69 percent. Anne was ranked on this year’s list with a 97 percent approval rating from employees.
