Fortune reveals its 34th annual list of the World’s Most Admired Companies. Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company is proud to be sixth on Fortune Magazine’s Information Technology Services Most Admired list.
Within Information Technology Services, Gartner ranked in the top ten of all nine key criteria and in the top five for:
- People Management
- Quality of Management
- Quality of Products/Services
- Long-Term Investment Value
To identify the Most Admired Companies, the Hay Group administered the Fortune survey, starting with about 1,400 companies: the Fortune 1,000 – the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue – and non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database with revenue of $10 billion or more. Hay then selected the 15 largest companies for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry, surveying a total of 692 companies from 30 countries. To create the 57 industry lists, Hay asked executives, directors and analysts to rate companies in their industry on the nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
