Fortune reveals its 35th annual list of the World’s Most Admired Companies. Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company is proud to be fourth on Fortune Magazine’s Information Technology Services Most Admired list.
Within Information Technology Services, Gartner ranked in the top five of all nine key criteria and in the top four 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 1,500 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. Fortune then winnowed the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 28 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool of 680; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group. To determine the best-regarded companies in 51 industries, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
