What it takes to be a CEO

By Amy MaciasAssociated PressA chief executive is an important job in today’s world, but there’s an exception: CEOs are important for keeping their companies running, and keeping their company profitable.

The CEOs of Fortune 500 companies earn more than their counterparts in the average U.S. family of four, and they’re more likely to be employed at companies with more than $1 billion in revenue.

They are also likely to have higher earnings and more employees than their colleagues in other occupations.

CEOs are also the most likely to lead companies in the next few decades.

But in this new era of low interest rates, the CEO role is changing as well.

A study by the Pew Charitable Trusts finds that a number of factors make CEOs more valuable than other workers in a business today.

1.

They’re more willing to shareThe chief executives of Fortune 50 companies are more likely than their peers to take on larger risks and are willing to take the company public and sell more shares, the study finds.

That’s not because they’re better at risk-taking, but because they’ve invested in companies with higher risk.

2.

They have better relationshipsThe chief executive has more relationships with key employees, according to the Pew study.

CEOs also have more relationships than workers in other sectors, such as retail or health care, that typically don’t have close relationships with the CEO.

3.

They don’t get stressedThe chief execs of Fortune 100 companies are generally more satisfied than workers at other companies, and their employees tend to be more stressed.

They also have a higher satisfaction with their work environment, according the study.

4.

They tend to do more risk managementThe CEOs of the Fortune 500s also tend to handle more risks, the Pew report finds.

This is because they have more flexibility in how they manage their money and have more time to look at their financials, the report notes.

5.

They make more moneyThe CEO position has historically been associated with higher returns on equity, but a study from the Economic Policy Institute finds that it’s not true anymore.

It finds that the average return on equity for CEOs is 1.9%, and their average annual compensation is lower than that of the average worker.

This means CEOs are paid more for a similar percentage of their company’s revenue, and it’s possible that the CEO position is an undervalued one, especially in the wake of the economic downturn.

6.

They can make more profitThe CEO can also make more if they keep their businesses running, according in the Pew survey.

The chief executive’s earnings tend to rise if he or she has the company’s operations and marketing teams and if they have good management, according a recent study by Boston Consulting Group.

7.

They get better at managing the businessThe study also found that CEOs in the top five percentile of their companies’ revenue have higher productivity, which can translate into higher sales and profits.

8.

They work harderThe CEO is more likely at work when the company is on the brink of bankruptcy, according an October 2014 study by Harvard Business School and MIT.

The study found that in the last three years, CEOs in top 50 Fortune 500 firms have been more likely for their companies to close than employees in other industries.

9.

They pay moreFor most people, it’s the salary they earn that matters, and for many employees, that can be the difference between being a CEO or not.

The Pew study found there are about 25 million people who are CEOs in America.

Of those, about 30% earn more, according its research.

10.

They’ve more experienceThe chief employees of Fortune companies are less likely to come from the same family, according Pew.

They tended to come of age between the mid-1960s and mid-1980s, with the exception of a few who came after.

Their parents also tended to be in different income levels.

They might have worked in different fields, or they might have had different careers, Pew said.

11.

They know more than mostPeople in the CEO group are more knowledgeable about their business, and more of them know more about their industry than average workers, Pew found.

But that knowledge is not what counts when they are asked to evaluate the performance of their employer.

That knowledge comes in different ways.

Some people are more confident in their understanding of their industry.

Some of them may have more experience than others in the business.

The more experienced a CEO is, the better they can assess and evaluate the company.

12.

They feel more comfortable with their companyThe Pew study notes that CEOs have a sense of belonging and can feel at home in the company, which could mean they are more willing and able to communicate their ideas and opinions with employees.

13.

They see the company more as a teamPeople in top companies are also more likely, Pew finds, to be part of a team that focuses on long-term goals, including a company’s long-range growth and profitability.

The company that has the highest ratio of team members who are executives and executives who
