SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VIPKid, a global education technology company, today announced that Founder and CEO Cindy Mi has won a Glassdoor award honoring the Top CEOs in 2019. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual award recognizing the Top CEOs, which highlights leaders that have the highest approval ratings on Glassdoor.
Among the chief executives recognized, Mi received an impressive approval rating based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews that VIPKid teachers, who offer their services on VIPKid’s platform, shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
“It is a privilege to be recognized as part of this tremendous group of highly accomplished leaders, but even more humbling to have the appreciation from teachers. I am continuously in awe of the global classroom we’ve built and I am energized knowing that we’re united by a shared mission to inspire and empower every child for the future,” said Mi.
“Glassdoor’s Top CEOs award continues to be more competitive every year, and I congratulate each leader on their achievement,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president and chief operating officer.
When submitting reviews on Glassdoor, reviewers are asked to rate various factors about their experience, including their overall satisfaction and other attributes like senior leadership. Among the approximately 900,000 CEOs reviewed on Glassdoor, Mi ranks in the top 100 with an 87% approval rating.
Glassdoor’s Top CEOs in 2019 were determined using company reviews shared 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 takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
This recognition follows a long list of other 2019 accolades. VIPKid has also been named one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work, BrandZ’s Top 100 Most Valuable Chinese Brands, Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies for the second year in a row and one of FlexJobs’ Top 100 Companies with Remote Jobs.
