Sundance Vacations is proud to announce that CEO John Dowd has been awarded Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEO recognition for 2015. Glassdoor, a jobs and careers marketplace, released its annual report highlighting the Highest Rated CEOs, this year recognizing top leaders in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among CEOs recognized in the U.S. at small and mid-size companies, Dowd received an impressive 95% approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Sundance Vacations employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. This ranks him 8th among CEO’s that run small businesses around the United States.
“When I heard about this award, I was so happy,” said Sundance Vacations CEO John Dowd. “Here at Sundance Vacations we always strive to be the on the cutting edge of the travel industry. Our revolutionary travel product is only amplified by the people that we have working for this company and to be honored by them, and to see that they agree with my vision for the future of the business, is an amazing feeling. I am honored to be named to this list and even more honored to be surrounded by the ones who make this company great each and every day, its employees.”
“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.”
CEO approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s online company review survey, which seeks to gain current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, the work environment and the culture. Employees are asked to rate a number of workplace factors like compensation and benefits as well as work-life balance, and asked whether they approve or disapprove of the way their CEO is leading the company. In addition, employees are asked to describe some of the upsides and downsides of working for the company and provide any advice for senior management.
