Robert Glazer, Acceleration Partners - Why We recognized Him:
If you are not a business insider, you may not have heard of him, but that is sure to change quickly as his books and incredibly honest and thoughtful insights on better business done right become more widely read. Glazer’s award-winning affiliate marketing agency has been ranked repeatedly among Glassdoor’s best places to work, and he was twice named #2 on Glassdoor’s list of “Top CEOs of Small and Medium Companies in the US.”
That’s pretty amazing since he doesn’t even own a building for his employees to work in. His company has always been remote. How did that happen? Well one way was with the most conscientious, honest and well-thought out hiring processes imaginable, all designed to make sure that those coming on board know what the company is about and what to expect, how the work environment will be and to make sure it is a good fit for both parties. If not, Glazer will personally help those employees find a different job either within the company or even with another employer if needed by personally tapping into his extensive contact base
