Big news out of Burbank today, Forbes has released a list of the world’s best regarded companies for 2017 and The Walt Disney Company is atop the list. That moves Disney up four spots from the 2017 ranking, the first year that the rankings were compiled. Disney ranks No. 1, earning the highest marks among Forbes’ 2018 Global 2000 companies.
To get the ranking Forbes worked with Statista, a leading provider of market and consumer data. They surveyed 15,000 people from 60 countries to find out how they perceive companies’ trustworthiness, social conduct, performance of their products or services, and how they are viewed as an employer. The 250 highest ranked companies were revealed today on Forbes.com.
This is not the first honor for Disney in 2018, the Harris Poll Reputation Quotient (RQ), which looks at corporate reputation, has ranked the company 5th. Disney also holds the fifth spot on the 2018 Global RepTrak 100 from Reputation Institute, the largest yearly study of its kind. The Walt Disney Company has also been among the top 10 “World’s Most Admired Companies” on Fortune’s annual list for six consecutive years, ranking No. 1 in the entertainment industry and No. 6 overall for 2018.
