Ingram named a top CEO
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – David Ingram, chief executive officer of GoEasy has won the 2018 Glassdoor Employees Choice Award, which recognises the top 25 CEOs of companies with a significant presence in Canada. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, releases its Top CEOs report annually, highlighting the leaders employees love working for in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Among chief executives recognised by employees in Canada, David Ingram received an impressive 92% approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews GoEasy’s current and former employees shared on Glassdoor over the past year. Among the 770,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69%.
“I am extremely honoured to have received this prestigious award as voted on by our employees and I am humbled to be included amongst some of the top CEOs of companies with a Canadian and global presence,” David Ingram said in a statement. “Over the past 17 years, we have been focused on creating a culture that empowers our employees to service our customers while rewarding and supporting those efforts. It is our people that have built this company around their drive, tenacity and passion for helping others, and for that, I am extremely proud to be a part of this team.”
Based here, the publicly held GoEasy is the parent company of Easyhome, this country’s largest furniture and appliance leasing merchant and Easyfinancial, a short-term consumer loan specialist.
“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgement of exceptional leadership, as it reflects the opinions of the employees who work with a chief executive every day. I congratulate all of this year’s winners on this significant achievement,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “It can be a real recruiting advantage to have a top-rated CEO at the helm of a company who has strong support from his or her employees. The best CEOs are inspiring, trustworthy, innovative and can be great motivators for people to bring their best selves to work.”
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.
