Larry Page has been voted the best boss to work for by employees, according to research from jobs firm Glassdoor.

Page has a 99% approval rating among Google staff and beat off competition from American Express' Ken Chenault (98% approval) and Three's David Dyson (97% approval) to take top spot.

HomeServe UK's Martin Bennett bagged fourth place and easyJet's Carolyn McCall, the only female chief executive on the list, made up the rest of the top five. Apple's Tim Cook only made it to 21st.

"Very cool culture, amazing people, offices to die for" was how an anonymous employee described the culture that Page has instilled at Google. One EasyJet employee praised McCall for creating a "no blame" culture within the budget airline.

"Gaining the trust and approval of an entire workforce is one of the most difficult yet rewarding responsibilities for any leader," said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor's chief executive.

Bosses at John Lewis, Goldman Sachs and PwC all made the top 25 list.

Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEO survey 2015 spoke to employees across 25 companies, 14 of which are based in the UK spanning tech, finance, professional services and telecommunications. The survey is open year-round to all employees and asks for feedback on whether they approve or disapprove of how their CEO is leading the company, along with insight into their job, work environment and company.

The research was undertaken as part of the Employees' Choice Awards.
