Sam Malouf, chief executive officer of Logan, Utah-based bedding supplier Malouf, has been recognized by job and recruiting site Glassdoor with an Employees’ Choice Award honoring the Top CEOs in 2018 in the U.S. Small & Medium Companies category.
Sam Malouf ranked No. 23 out of 50 top CEOs with a 100% approval rating from employees. Ratings were anonymous and voluntary and based on the past year.
“These awards are always a nice surprise and a big honor for the company,” Sam Malouf said. “We try to focus on our employees and their happiness because it’s the right thing to do. It’s built into our values. The gain for us is the dedication that satisfied employees show in going above and beyond to help our customers succeed, so I believe this recognition belongs to our entire team.”
Robert Hohman, Glassdoor co-founder and CEO, said: “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. 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.”
Malouf also was named among Utah’s Best of State for 2018. It received a medal of excellence in the Wholesale Goods category at the annual Utah Best of State Gala on May 27 in Salt Lake City.
Presented annually, the Best of State Awards recognize outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. More than 100 judges independently review nominations and select winners based on achievement and excellence in their fields of endeavor, innovative approaches or methods, and contribution to quality of life in the state of Utah.
