Cook has been steadily climbing in the rankings. In 2013, he placed 18th; in 2014, 18th; and in 2015, 10th.

This year, Glassdoor has expanded its Employees’ Choice Awards across six countries, honoring the Highest Rated CEOs across the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands. In addition, there are two categories in the U.S.: 50 Highest Rated CEOs (honoring CEOs at employers with 1,000 or more employees) and 25 Highest Rated CEOs at Small & Medium Companies (honoring CEOs at employers with less than 1,000 employees). 

Winners are ranked based on their overall CEO approval rating from employees during the past year. For reporting simplicity, approval ratings are rounded to the nearest whole number though actual calculations extend beyond the thousandth to determine rank.

The top 10 Highest Rated CEOs in 2016 in the U.S. are: Bain & Company’s Bob Bechek (99% approval); Ultimate Software’s Scott Scherr (99% approval); McKinsey & Company’s Dominic Barton (99% approval); Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg (97% approval); LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner (97% approval); Salesforce’s Marc Benioff(97% approval); Google’s Sundar Pichai (96% approval); Cook; Nestle Purina Petcare’s Joseph Sivewright (96%); and Red Hat’s Jim Whitehurst (96%).
