Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka has received 91% approval rating from his employees in a survey conducted by career portal Glassdoor for 2015. Glassdoor put out the Employees’ Choice Awards for the ‘Highest Rated CEOs’ in 2015 and these were across categories spanning North America and Europe.
Sikka, who took over as the first non-founder CEO of Infosys in August 2014, was ranked 35th in the list, in which Larry Page of Google took the first spot. The employee rating was appreciated by Sikka who tweeted: “Wow! Sitting here in our glass doors last night, you can only feel #humbled to see this. Thx Infoscions.”
Sikka’s latest measure was to relax dress code for the employees, which allowed them to come to their offices in jeans and t-shirt. The Glassdoor list also has Cognizant CEO Francisco D’Souza, who received 91% approval rating and is ranked 31st.
