Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) June 10, 2015
Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree, Inc.®, a leading mobile strategy, UX design, and development services company, has been awarded Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEO recognition for 2015. Glassdoor, a jobs and careers 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 small and mid-size companies, Dengel ranked an impressive #2 on the list based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews WillowTree employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
“We built our company around the core concepts of finding the best of the best, and then empowering the individual to allow him/her to flourish,” said Tobias Dengel. “The management team spends most its time thinking about how we can streamline processes to make everyone's job easier, and allow us all to focus on what we really care about: creating amazing mobile and web applications for our clients. This ranking is a testament to the company we have built together. It is always an honor to be recognized for the work you do, but when it is from your team, it makes it that much more special.”
“Gaining the trust and approval of an entire workforce is one of the most difficult tasks for a CEO to undertake,” said Glassdoor CEO and Co-founder, Robert Hohman. “I celebrate the leaders appearing on this list because they’ve managed to inspire and engage their employees, as proven by the feedback shared on Glassdoor around the clock and around the world.”
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.
