CEO Steven C. Bilt of Smile Brands Inc. has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2019. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual report recognizing the Top CEOs, which highlights top leaders employees love working for in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Smile Brands, a leading dental support organization with approximately 400 affiliated practices across 17 states, has long been focused on creating a culture where affiliated providers and employees can thrive. Co-Founder and CEO Bilt has an impressive 98% approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Smile Brands employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
“Dentistry is and always will be about people,” explains Bilt, “At Smile Brands, that starts with our people and our culture. When we get that right, it naturally extends to the patient and our broader communities; ultimately connecting with our people and our purpose is the “how” behind our “why” of delivering Smiles for Everyone. “
“It’s an honor to recognize incredible leaders who, from their employees’ perspectives, exemplify exceptional vision, trust and communication. Glassdoor’s Top CEOs award continues to be more competitive every year, and I congratulate each leader on their achievement,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president and chief operating officer. “Today’s job seekers are looking for leaders who share their values and will empower them to bring their full selves to work. More and more, we’re seeing Top CEOs make decisions to shape the culture of their organizations to help recruit and retain quality talent, which has a direct correlation to fueling business success.”
When employees submit reviews about their company on Glassdoor, they are asked to rate various factors about their employment experience, including their overall satisfaction and other workplace attributes like senior management. As part of these ratings, employees are also asked to rate whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.
Among the 900,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69 percent.
Glassdoor’s Top CEOs in 2019 were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between May 2, 2018 and May 1, 2019. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
