Disney tends to top a lot of lists!
And, yet again, the Walt Disney Company has received a top spot on Fortune’s list of “World’s Most Admired Companies.” They ranked No. 1 in the entertainment industry and No. 6 overall for 2018. This is the sixth consecutive year Disney has been in the top 10.
Fortune partnered with global management consulting firm Korn Ferry to compile the annual rankings out of the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. The top 50 companies were determined by a survey of 3,900 executives, directors and securities analysts in a variety of industries, who were asked to select the 10 companies they admired most.
Nine key attributes of corporate reputation are reviewed as part of this annual study. They include long-term investment value, quality of products/services, global competitiveness and social responsibility. Disney is an industry leader on Fortune’s list in these areas, as well as people management, use of corporate assets and financial soundness.
