Schneider Electric chief wins Glassdoor Top CEO award

Schneider Electric, a leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has announced that its chief executive officer, Jean-Pascal Tricoire, was recognised with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honouring the Top CEOs in 2019.

Based on anonymous and voluntary employees’ feedback throughout the past year, Tricoire has ranked 54th out of Top 100 CEO’s US Large list with a 94 per cent approval rating from employees, said a statement from the company.

Schneider Electric has been steadily increasing its Glassdoor company rating over the years, especially with strong growth on CEO approval and culture and values, it said.

Tina Mylon, senior vice president for Talent & Diversity, said: “Great people make Schneider Electric a great company. I am delighted that our employees recognise we collectively drive a meaningful purpose to enable life, progress and sustainability for all.”

“At the same time, we are committed to provide equal opportunities to everyone, everywhere so that our employees are empowered to innovate and manage their unique life and work,” she said.

With a long-term commitment to sustainability, Jean-Pascal Tricore is the president of Global Compact France since 2014, and a director of the worldwide board of the UN Global Compact.

He is also a UN #HeForShe Corporate Impact champion working with other heads of state, universities and companies to advance gender equality.  

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 North America and parts of Europe.

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 per cent.

Glassdoor’s Top CEOs in 2019 were determined using company reviews shared by US-based employees between May 2, 2018, and May 1, 2019.

The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and considers quantity, quality and consistency of reviews, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
