According to Fortune, Apple has topped their annual list of the world’s most admired companies. The tech giant has been first in that list for an impressive 15 years straight now.
For the 2022 list, Fortune narrowed down 1,500+ companies to the most admired in the world with the assistance of management consulting company Korn Ferry and around 3,700+ corporate executives, analysts and directors voting in a survey.
Tech and entertainment companies secured the top three spots, with Amazon as runner-up and Microsoft, Pfizer and Walt Disney rounding out the top five, respectively.
Fortune states on their website:
“Just as it dominates our economy, Big Tech now dominates Fortune’s annual ranking of corporate reputation. For the third year in a row, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft rank first, second, and third, respectively, based on our poll of some 3,700 corporate executives, directors, and analysts.
It’s Apple’s 15th straight year in the No. 1 spot, a fitting coronation for the world’s most valuable company. As a global pandemic limped into its third year, meanwhile, companies on the front lines of the medical battle gained new respect.
Pfizer, co-developer of one of the most effective COVID-19 vaccines, vaulted all the way to No. 4, appearing on our All-Stars list for the first time in 16 years. And Danaher (No. 37), whose COVID tests and drug-development equipment are pivotal tools in the fight against the novel coronavirus, made its top 50 debut.”
