Electrolux listed among World’s Most Admired Companies

Electrolux is included in the 2012 edition of the World’s Most Admired Companies list, a report published by CNN and Fortune. Electrolux ranked number four in the “Home equipment and furnishings” category, as rated by 3,855 executives, directors and analysts globally.

Innovation, quality of products and services and global competitiveness are the three criteria in which Electrolux is particularly well rated.

The list is based on a survey conducted by the Hay Group, started with approximately 1,400 companies: the Fortune 1,000 (the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue), non-U.S. companies in Fortune‘s Global 500 database with revenue of $10 billion or more, and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S. The companies were then sorted by industry – the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry.

A total of 698 companies from 32 countries were surveyed. To create the 58 industry lists, Hay asked executives, directors and analysts to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility.
