Granite has been named as one of Fortune Magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies. The Fortune list is a ranking of the world’s most respected and reputable companies as graded by their corporate peers.
Granite President and CEO James H. Roberts attributes the award to the company’s 7,200-person workforce. “It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized among the most admirable companies in the world,” he said in a press release. “This recognition is a testament to our people who are the driving force behind our success.”
Fortune collaborated with partner Korn Ferry to conduct this survey of corporate reputation in which executives, directors, and securities analysts rated Granite on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
The complete World’s Most Admired Companies list appears in the February issue of the magazine. Industry manufacturers also appearing on the list include Caterpillar, Deere, and Komatsu.
