CHICAGO, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FORTUNE has announced that Jones Lang LaSalle has again been named to its exclusive list of the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” the definitive report card on corporate reputations. The firm was recognized as one of the real estate industry’s leaders based on criteria that include corporate social responsibility, quality of services and global effectiveness.
“Our colleagues across the world work diligently to drive value and innovative solutions for our clients,” said Colin Dyer, Jones Lang LaSalle CEO and President. “It is an honor to be recognized for the responsible corporate citizenship, superior client service and integrated global platform that enable them to deliver successful results.”
FORTUNE survey partners at Hay Group, a global management consulting firm, employ rigorous methodology to compile the list. It started with some 1,400 companies: the FORTUNE 1,000—the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue; non-U.S. companies in FORTUNE’s Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more; and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S. The companies were then sorted by industry and the 15 largest for each international industry and the ten largest for each U.S. industry were considered.
A total of 673 companies, from 57 industries and 32 countries were surveyed. To create the 57 industry lists, Hay Group asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value to corporate social responsibility. This year only the best are listed: A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be named most admired.
