According to Fortune, the World's Most Admired Companies annual list is a ranking of the world's most respected and reputable companies. Those on the list are determined by a survey that evaluates corporate reputation based on nine key attributes, including innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment value, quality of products and/or services, and global competitiveness.
