Episode 3

Host: Ben Eubanks

Guest: Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Chief Economist at Glassdoor

If you check out a company's profile on Glassdoor, one of the first things you see is the CEO approval rating. As an HR leader, this is a number that I was always concerned with as a signal for overall employee satisfaction. It's common to hear stories about CEO approval in the news, and all of us have an opinion about our current and past leaders at the top of the organizational hierarchy. 

But what goes into that measurement and how do company decisions affect the ratings? Until now, most of the information in this area has been ad hoc or anecdotal, but Glassdoor has been able to gather enough data to show true links between CEO approval and areas like culture, benefits, and work/life balance. In this episode of We're Only Human, Ben Eubanks interviews Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Chief Economist at Glassdoor. Ben and Andrew discuss the links between CEO approval and executive compensation, what it means to be a founder versus an externally hired CEO, and what really matters to employees when it comes to rating the performance of their leaders.
