David Rice Named a Glassdoor Top CEO in 2018

By Star Report 2 min read

Chicago, IL — New Home Star CEO, David Rice, has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2018. Glassdoor, the most prominent job review site, released its rankings after analyzing over 770,000 businesses to determine the top-rated CEOs of the year.

Among chief executives recognized by employees in the U.S., Rice earned an outstanding approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews New Home Star employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. The prestigious honor comes after two additional awards in the last six months from Glassdoor Employees’ Choice, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018 and Crain’s Business Chicago Best Places to Work for 2018.

“An award like this is obviously an organizational accomplishment, and I am reluctant to be singled out as the individual recipient,” says Founder, David Rice. “New Home Star is an organization blessed with many powerful leaders and passionate people at all levels. There is still much work to do, but seeing so many positive anonymous reviews on Glassdoor about our company is another sign that we are having a positive effect on our employees’ lives.”

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.

“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgment 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.”
