To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry 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.
Because of the weak distribution of responses, only the aggregate industry scores and ranks are published in Food Services, General Merchandisers, Construction and Farm Machinery, and Network and Other Communications Equipment. Results were not published in the following categories owing to insufficient response rates: To select our 50 All-Stars, Korn Ferry asked 3, executives, directors, and securities analysts who had responded to the industry surveys to select the 10 companies they admired most.
Anyone could vote for any company in any industry. The difference in the voting rolls explains why some results can seem at odds with each other.
