Across our committees, awareness and working groups, what we value most is the diversity of thought and experience our members contribute to this community. Between individuals, companies and industries, the transfer of knowledge solves global risk management challenges. Simply put, we admire all of our members for their generosity of thought for the greater good. It is with delight that we announce high regard for our members transcends Shared Assessments; many of our members are among World’s Most Admired Companies named by Fortune Magazine.
Introducing the list, Fortune describes a business landscape where “humanity leaned more heavily than ever on tech giants—to connect, entertain, and even feed us in a time of isolation” and points out that “companies that became even more essential during the pandemic were among the biggest movers.” Most admired companies are rated on 9 criteria from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
To build the comprehensive Most Admired list, Fortune collaborates with Korn Ferry (a global management consulting firm who has conducted the research for the list since 1997) beginning with a pool of about 1,500 candidates. Next, Fortune and Korn Ferry rank companies by revenue, winnowing the assortment to highest-revenue organizations in 52 industries – 670 companies in 30 countries. Finally, executives, directors and analysts rate enterprises within their respective industries. (Complete details on methodology here.)
The list highlights 50 All-Stars. This top tier includes Shared Assessments’ members Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble, CVS, UPS, and USAA. The greater list includes Aflac, BlackRock, Capital One, Cisco, Charles Schwab, Deere, Fidelity National Financial, Fiserv, NY Life, Palo Alto, Prudential Financial, ServiceNow, Société General, Southern Company, TIAABank, Trane Technologies, US Bancorp, WestRock, and Workday.
We congratulate these universally-admired member organizations on their all-around excellence! A robust Third Party Risk Management program is an essential part of the balance – we so value the time, knowledge and experience our members bring to the table.
