Fujitsu says it has been named to Fortune magazine's 2021 list of "World's Most Admired Companies" for the third year in a row.

This year, 670 companies were nominated from 30 countries as the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” of which 332 were selected (15 of which were Japanese companies). Fujitsu was selected in the category for the IT Services industry and was highly-evaluated in areas including Global Competitiveness and Innovation.

Conducted through a partnership between Fortune Magazine and Korn Ferry, the annually published "World's Most Admired Companies" list is determined based on a survey of a combined 15,000 executives, directors at global companies, and analysts. Companies are evaluated based on nine categories: Innovation, People Management, Use of Corporate Assets, Social Responsibility, Quality of Management, Financial Soundness, Long-Term Investment Value, Quality of Products/Services, and Global Competitiveness. Companies that receive high evaluations in these categories are selected for inclusion in the list.

That's actually kinda pathetic for the third's third biggest economy. Why is this news?

It reads like a company memo rather than a news article, and the source is Fujitsu themselves, hence the omission of any other names.

That's actually kinda pathetic for the third's third biggest economy.

Two words: Fortune magazine. Do you honestly expect a US publication to list more than 15 Japanese companies in a "most admired" (read: most subjective listing ever) list?? 15 is generous.

We're not talking about reality, here, it's pure editorial subjectivity, with rankings linked closely to how much companies pay for advertising with said publication.

@hillclimber:

I don't know if you know, but in many countries Japanese companies are the best employers, for example in Eastern Europe, where American and European companies offer poor working conditions. People flock to Japanese companies when they have such an opportunity. Believe me, nobody wants to work on German machines that need to be repaired at least once a day. Mobbing also occurs frequently in companies from Europe

Nobody here admires companies from countries other than Germany. The rest of Western Europe produces very low quality goods and no one who is aware of it buys it. Japanese companies usually enjoy a good reputation

@jefflee: but why? this is the second best result after USA. Anyway, the number of large corporations counts, and per capita Japan has more of them than the USA, China, UK, Germany and South Korea (fortune global 500, Forbes global 2000)
