Glassdoor has placed Chad Richison, Oklahoma-born CEO of Paycom, among the top 100 Chief Executive Officers.
Glassdoor is a website on which people can anonymously post ratings of their companies and managers. A person can also comment on their interview, salary, benefits, or the company in general. The list itself is composed by evaluating the number, consistency, and quality of reviews of an employer. It then averages and compares them to those of other CEOs.
Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Rewards of 2019 include companies from the U.S., Germany, Canada, the U.K, and Germany. Additionally, it has both the 100 CEO list for major companies and the top 50 CEO list for medium and small businesses that have under 1000 employees.
Chad Richison received a 93% approval rating and found himself on number 66 of the list. By that token, this puts him in the same rank as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Apple’s Tom Cook.
Chad founded Paycom, the online company that provides payroll and human resource software and tools, in 1998. It was among the first to render these services over the Internet, and it quickly rose to prominence. Forbes named it one of the five fastest-growing enterprises in 2017.
Paycom was the recipient of other accolades from Glassdoor as well. Namely, the review site dubbed it one of the Best Places to Work in 2019. It was the only large company based in Oklahoma to get this recognition that year.
The Oklahoma company is planning to also set up shop in Texas in 2021. Future operations in Texas should provide about 1000 people with employment.
