OppLoans CEO Jared Kaplan Named a Glassdoor Top CEO in 2018

Kaplan was 8th highest-rated CEO on the prestigious list.

CHICAGO—June—OppLoans CEO Jared Kaplan has won a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2018 in the U.S. SMB category.

Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual report recognizing the Top CEOs, which highlights top leaders employees love working for at Small & Medium Companies in the U.S.

Out of the 50 CEOs recognized in the Small & Medium category, Kaplan is ranked an impressive 8th overall. The award is based on the anonymous and voluntary reviews OppLoans employees shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year.

“We win as a team and this is a phenomenal honor,” said Kaplan. “Over the last 2.5 years, we’ve hired almost 300 of the best people that Chicago has to offer. And as we’ve grown, our culture has only grown stronger. OppLoans is a great place to work because we know that taking care of our employees lets our employees take care of our customers. Together, we have driven exceptional organizational culture, growth, and profitability by creating outstanding value for hundreds of thousands of customers nationally. The customer always tells the story … and ours is just beginning!”

“Winning a Glassdoor Top CEO award is a true acknowledgement of exceptional leadership, as it reflects the opinions of the employees who work with a chief executive every day. I congratulate all of this year’s winners on this significant achievement,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO. “It can be a real recruiting advantage to have a top-rated CEO at the helm of a company who has strong support from his or her employees. The best CEOs are inspiring, trustworthy, innovative and can be great motivators for people to bring their best selves to work.”

When employees submit reviews of their company to Glassdoor, they are asked to rate various factors about their employment experience, including their overall satisfaction and other workplace attributes like senior management. As part of these ratings, employees are also asked whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing.

Among the 770,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor, the average CEO approval rating is 69 percent. Kaplan holds a 98 percent employee approval rating.
