ScanSource Inc., a global provider of technology products and solutions, has been named to FORTUNE magazine's 2021 list of World’s Most Admired Companies. ScanSource’s inclusion in this year’s list marks the fifth consecutive year the company has received the recognition. The annual survey, which is given to thousands of senior executives, directors and financial analysts from more than 600 global companies, identifies the organizations with the strongest reputations within their industries and across other industries.
“FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies list recognizes some of the most respected organizations around the globe, and it’s an honor to be listed next to them,” said Mike Baur, chairman and CEO, ScanSource Inc. “In what has been a challenging year for so many companies, we are beyond pleased to once again be named to this distinguished list. It is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees, especially considering the incredible pivots we have made to continue to provide the very best technology solutions to our partners.”
FORTUNE collaborated with their partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputation. They began with 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in FORTUNE’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. FORTUNE then organized the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 30 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group. 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.
