Sam Malouf, founder and CEO of Logan-based company Malouf has recently been ranked number 12 on Glassdoor’s Top CEO list in the Small and Medium business category. Over 900,000 companies are reviewed on Glassdoor, with an average CEO rating of 69 percent. Malouf received a 98 percent approval rating.
Malouf has built a company that offers a wide range of bedding products and the business has become a leader in the furniture and bedding industry since it was founded in 2003.
“Malouf is young, vibrant, and thriving, and I can’t wait to see how we grow together,” Malouf said in response to this recognition. “It’s especially humbling that this ranking comes straight from our employees, and I’m honored to have their support.”
Glassdoor is a website that combines the latest jobs with millions of reviews and insights to make it easy for people to find a job. An employee is asked to rate different aspects of their job like overall satisfaction and senior management. The Top CEO list is compiled after employees submit reviews selecting an option to rate their CEO with approve, disapprove or neutral about the job their CEO is doing.
Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president and chief operating officer said it’s an honor to recognize leaders who, “exemplify exceptional vision, trust, and communication.”
Malouf said he loves spending time with his employees each day. He said when his employees are engaged in their work, “they positively impact their coworkers, and it spreads throughout the entire organization.”
“Building open relationships and friendships with my employees guarantees they’ll give me honest feedback on how we can be better,” Malouf continued.
Scott Carr, Malouf Brand Manager, shared survey results that were submitted anonymously. One employee said, “Sam consistently looks for feedback across the company for major projects, regardless of department. He trusts people rather than positions.”
According to Carr, 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 considers quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
