OneGuard’s Scott Smith named highest rated CEO in 2015

OneGuard Home Warranties CEO Scott Smith was awarded Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEO recognition for 2015. Glassdoor, a jobs and careers marketplace, recently released its annual report highlighting the Highest Rated CEOs, this year recognizing top leaders throughout North America and parts of Europe.

Among CEOs recognized in the U.S. at small and mid-size companies, Smith received an impressive 98-percent approval rating based on anonymous and voluntary reviews that OneGuard employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.

“This is an incredibly humbling recognition,” said Smith. “We make a great effort to ensure our employees are valued and appreciated, and I couldn’t be more pleased they find the workplace satisfying and that their needs are met.”

Approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s company review survey, which seeks to gain current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, the work environment and the culture. Employees rate numerous workplace factors and assess the effectiveness of the CEO.

“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.”
