More about this list and how it was created

After publishing earlier this week two rankings looking at top CEOs —the best CEOs based on ratings from workers of color and highly ranked CEOs according to ratings from women — Comparably also published its ranking that highlights where workers think their leaders are doing a good job.

The ranking, "Best Leadership Teams," uses 12 months of anonymous worker rating data, starting from the end of June 2021.

"Great culture is driven by strong leadership teams who know how to work together to bring out the very best in their people," Jason Nazar, CEO of Comparably said in a statement. "Based on direct feedback from employees, the companies who do this well lead by example by focusing on transparency, empathy, and opportunities for growth."

Amazon Consumer ranked at the top of this year's iteration of the list for the ranking that only includes places with over 500 employees, or large companies according to Comparably.

Nextdoor's leadership team placed third on this list. The company's CEO Sarah Friar also ranked 13th in this year's list of the "Best CEOs for Diversity." Friar placed on the list for "Best CEOs for Women," placing 93 on the large business ranking.

Industry and quotes are from the workplace site Comparably, and the full ranking is available on Comparably.
