3 health system CEOs with highest employee approval ratings: Memorial Sloan Kettering chief tops the list

Three health system CEOs received Glassdoor's annual Employees' Choice Awards, which honors the 100 highest employee-rated U.S. CEOs in 2017.

Craig B. Thompson, MD, president and CEO of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, was the highest ranked health system CEO, coming in at No. 4. Michael Dowling, president and CEO of New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health, was the second highest ranked health system CEO (No. 67), and Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente was the third (No. 68.)

The Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards are based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review on Glassdoor about their CEO's leadership, as well as their overall satisfaction with their job, work environment and employer over the past year.

According to analysis of company and leader reviews, highly rated CEOs are statistically linked to companies with great cultures. Among metrics related to company culture, the most significant driver of high CEO approval ratings is employee satisfaction with senior leadership. The study also reveals a strong link between CEO approval rating and financial performance.
