Career website Glassdoor has released the list of world's top 50 chief executive officers (CEOs).

Google's Larry Page unseated LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner from the number one spot, which he grabbed last year from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Larry received 98% approval rating from his employees.

Google was also recently voted the best tech company to work for in the US.

Only Indian CEO to appear in that list is Infosys' Vishal Sikka, occupying 35th spot. Approval rating for Sikka is at 91%.

Other big names in the list are Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Apple's Tim Cook and Goldman Sachs' Lloyd C. Blankfein.

Glassdoor also honoured CEOs of small and medium sized companies with less than 1000 employees. Frank Williams of Evolent Health topped the list in this category.

Only 15 tech CEOs made the list this year, compared to 20 tech CEOs on the 2014 list. Zero female CEOs made the tech list and the overall top 50 list in 2015. In 2013, one made it, and in 2014 there were two.

Glassdoor compiled its figures based on company reviews submitted by U.S.-based employees between April 22, 2014 and April 21, 2015. For a CEO to be considered, he or she had to have received at least 100 reviews from employees during the past year. Only 20 of the top 50 CEOs this year were on Glassdoor's report last year.
