30 Nov The Top CEOs of 2017 feat. Our Very Own Gavan Thorpe
The website Comparably recently published the rankings for their Top CEOs of 2017 survey.
Comparably gathers data about salaries, helps people find their dream jobs, and offers a wealth of information about workplace culture at top companies. The aim of the site is to give employees the data they need to make decisions about working at a particular company, improve their job experiences, and give them more control over their work life.
One way Comparably does all this is by releasing its yearly Best Places to Work results.
The first lists Comparably releases in its Best Places to Work series are for the top CEOs. Comparably rates CEOs for companies in the U.S. in two sets of rankings. One for large companies (more than 500 employees) and another for small and midsize companies (less than 500 employees). It bases the CEO rankings on the scores from employees submit through the website.
Employees can anonymously submit a rating any time between January 1 and November 11. It is free to take part and no one is required to participate.
The Rankings for 2017
This year, Boostability CEO Gavan Thorpe ranked fifth in small and midsize companies. He received an average score of 91 out of 100. The employees in HR rated him the highest, giving him a score of 100.
This puts Gavan on par with CEOs like Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn, who ranked fourth in the large companies with a score of 86 out of 100. Gavan received the same average score as the top CEO in the large companies group, Marc Benioff of Salesforce.
The numbers this year go to show that many top CEOs out there are not from well-known, large corporations but from rising companies like Boostability. Congrats Gavan!
