CDW’s Tom Richards Honored Again as One of Glassdoor’s Highest-rated CEOs

Glassdoor Highest-rated CEOs 2017 logoFor a third consecutive year, online career marketplace Glassdoor honored CDW Chairman and CEO Tom Richards on its annual highest-rated CEO list, based on voluntary employee reviews shared on Glassdoor over the past year.

“CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors they can receive because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day. I congratulate all of the winners on this significant honor,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.”

CDW coworkers gave Richards a 96 percent approval rating. The Glassdoor recognition comes as CDW surpassed $1 billion in sales of workloads delivered via cloud and $1 billion in security solutions sales in 2016, and revenue growth propelled it to No. 199 on the Fortune 500 in 2017. In addition, CDW continues to be recognized by organizations including Forbes, Computerworld and G.I. Jobs as an inclusive workplace in which every coworker has the opportunity to demonstrate his or her potential.

CEO approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s online company review survey, which gathers current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, the work environment and the culture. Employees are asked to rate workplace factors including compensation and benefits as well as work-life balance, and asked whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.
