Once again, Jabil has been named to Fortunes’s World’s Most Admired Companies list alongside global brands like Intel and Texas Instruments, in the Semiconductor industry.
The 2013 World’s Most Admired Companies list is a report card on corporate reputations as rated by industry executives, directors and analysts. Voting is by industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. This year 687 companies from 30 countries competed in the survey. Jabil’s announced acquisition of Nypro (a strategic investment to deepen its participation in diversified manufacturing) and inclusion in Newsweek’s Green rankings are great examples of ways Fortune’s most admired companies are different. The competition is tough–to make the list, a company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey.
