Peter Done, Group Managing Director and founder of global employment law consultancy, Peninsula has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honouring the Top CEOs in 2019. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual award recognising the Top CEOs, which highlights top leaders that employees love working for in countries throughout Europe and North America.
Among chief executives recognised by employees in the UK, Peter Done received an impressive 93% approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews that Peninsula employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. This approval rating made him the highest rated CEO in the North West.
Peninsula’s Group Managing Director and Founder, Peter Done, said: “It is a privilege to be recognised as part of this fantastic group of highly accomplished leaders. To know this award is based solely on the feedback of our employees makes it even more special.”
“This accolade is a real testament to the leaders at every level of our business, who are creating positive experiences for our employees every day. At Peninsula, our ultimate aim is to foster and facilitate the learning and development of every employee that steps through the doors, providing leadership and a work environment that is enriching and rewarding.”
Mr Done added: “For any budding entrepreneurs, my advice would be that a business is only as strong as the people who operate within it. Our business mantra is “success starts here”, so I think it is important for businesses to acknowledge that without the hard work and dedication of the talented individuals in their workplace, businesses wouldn’t achieve half of the success and recognition they receive.”
“It’s an honour to recognise 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, and I congratulate each leader on their achievement,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president and chief operating officer. “Today’s job seekers are looking for leaders who share their values and will empower them to bring their full selves to work. More and more, we’re seeing Top CEOs make decisions to shape the culture of their organisations to help recruit and retain quality talent, which has a direct correlation to fuelling business success.”
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. Among the approximately 900,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69 percent.
Glassdoor’s Top CEOs in 2019 were determined using company reviews shared by UK-based employees between 2nd May, 2018 and 1st May, 2019. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account the quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
