DALLAS – Sendero CEO & Founder Bret Farrar has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award recognizing the Highest Rated CEOs for 2017 in the U.S. SMB category. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing job sites, released its annual report honoring the Highest Rated CEOs, which highlights top leaders employees love working for at Small & Medium Companies in the U.S.
Farrar founded Sendero in 2004, and has led the firm through sustained growth of 20-30 percent annually. His leadership and commitment to encouraging employees to find purpose in everything they do has empowered Sendero to build an award-winning culture, recognized by placing three times on the Dallas Morning News Top 100 Workplaces list and winning a top-10 place on the 2017 Glassdoor Best Places to Work list.
Farrar speaks frequently on values, culture, and employee engagement, and has developed a B2B “culture exchange” concept to share innovative strategies with like-minded company leaders. Among chief executives recognized by employees in the U.S., Farrar received an impressive 99% approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews Sendero employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
“It is an incredible honor to be included on this list of talented CEOs,” said Farrar. “I am grateful for the support of our outstanding people, who’ve played a major role in crafting our unique and strong company culture. This milestone would not be possible without them.”
“CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors they can receive because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day. I congratulate all of the winners on this significant honor,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.”
