Today, Fortune Magazine named Whirlpool Corporation one of the World’s Most Admired Companies for the seventh consecutive year, recognizing the company’s excellent reputation among corporate stakeholders.
“We’re extremely proud of being recognized again on this prestigious list,” said Jeff Fettig, Chairman and CEO of Whirlpool Corporation. “For more than 105 years, we’ve been working to maintain the trust and confidence of our consumers and investors alike through product innovation and social responsibility.”
Fortune’s annual list is based on observations and opinions of executives who rate their peers and competitors in nine different categories including innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, long-term investment, financial soundness, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.
Whirlpool Corporation’s appearance on this list of the World’s Most Admired Companies is the latest of a series of accolades. In December 2016, Forbes Magazine named Whirlpool Corporation on its Just 100 List, which recognizes America’s best corporate citizens. Whirlpool Corporation has also received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s U.S. Corporate Equality Index for the past 13 years.
