Apple Is The ‘World’s Most Admired Company’ For 14th Consecutive Year
Apple continues to find itself as the company that others look up to following the announcement that it sits atop Fortune’s ‘World’s Most Admired Companies‘ for 2021.
Amazingly, that makes it 14 years unbeaten for the iPhone, Apple Watch, and Mac giant.
Apple wasn’t the only technology company sitting at the top of the pule, though. Amazon, Microsoft, and Disney round out the top four. Disney’s move into the streaming content arena makes it a big player in the tech world.
After a year in which humanity leaned more heavily than ever on tech giants—to connect, entertain, and even feed us in a time of isolation — it’s fitting that Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft hold the top three spots in Fortune’s ranking of corporate reputation. Apple, the premier personal-tech provider, tops the roster for the 14th year in a row, based on our poll of some 3,800 corporate executives, directors, and analysts.
After starting out with a list of more than 1,000 companies in the United States, the list was whittled down to just 50.
Management consulting firm Korn Ferry then asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate businesses across nine different criteria including the quality of their leadership team and social responsibility. Apple, again, came out at the head of the pack.
