Southwest Airlines Makes the Grade with Fortune Magazine

Add to Favorites:

Fortune’s 2017 list of World’s Most Admired Companies list is out and Southwest Airlines made it into the top ten, along with companies like Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Starbucks, Disney, General Electric, Berkshire Hathaway, FedEx and Microsoft – and it was the only commercial airline that made it into the top spots taking eighth place.

This is not Southwest Airlines first time being on Fortune’s 2017 list of World’s Most Admired Companies. They have made the list for twenty-three years in a row.

“This particular recognition is especially rewarding because it’s driven by input from leaders at other companies, and our folks take great pride in this achievement,” said Gary Kelly, chairman and chief executive officer of Southwest Airlines.

The list covers a lot of ground including companies from a wide range of industries including transportation, internet services and retailing, computers, food services, entertainment, pharmaceuticals, apparel, hotels and others.

Delta Airlines and Singapore Airlines in the top 50

Delta Airlines and Singapore Airlines made the cut of the top 50 most admired companies with Delta ranking number thirty-one on the list and Singapore Airlines at number thirty-three.
What about hotels? Marriott made the list too, at slot number twenty-five.

Making a list

To make their 2017 list of World’s Most Admired Companies list, Fortune partnered up with Korn Ferry Hay Group, a global management consulting firm. During the process they queried directors, executives and analysts from around the globe.

These voters were given the opportunity to rate the companies that they admired the most. Voters could choose any company that was in the top 25% of the list from 2016, and from any industry. But they could also choose any company that was in the top 20% of their industry.
