Today Glassdoor announced the winners of its annual Employee’s Choice Awards which honour the UK’s top CEO’s this year.

Employees voluntarily gave anonymous feedback by completing a company review on their CEO’s leadership, insight to their work, work environment and employer over the past year. Researchers then calculated boss approval rates from the feedback, which formed the CEO shortlist. More than 770,000 employers reviewed on Glassdoor. The average CEO approval rating is 69%.
