      Since its founding in 1886, Johnson & Johnson has been dedicated to changing the trajectory of health for everyone, everywhere. And that dedication continues to be recognized.

      For the 21st year in a row, Fortune has named Johnson & Johnson as a Top 50 All-Star on its list of the World’s Most Admired Companies. The company ranked #1 on the Pharmaceutical Industry list for the tenth consecutive year.

      The Makings of a World’s Most Admired Company

      To compile its list of best-regarded companies in 52 industries worldwide, as well as the top 50 most-admired overall, Fortune—in collaboration with consulting firm Korn Ferry—asked executives, directors and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on the basis of nine criteria. Those include investment value, quality of management, social responsibility and ability to attract and retain talented people.

      Johnson & Johnson is one of only five companies that have made the list every year since Fortune started it 25 years ago. The recognition is particularly rewarding since much of the judging criteria aligns with values outlined in Our Credo, Johnson & Johnson’s guiding mission statement. For example: “We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well.”

      The judging criteria aligns with values outlined in Our Credo, Johnson & Johnson’s guiding mission statement. For example: “We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well.

      That responsibility includes tackling some of the world’s most pressing unmet healthcare needs, such as a commitment to innovating treatments for deadly diseases, working to advance health equity across the globe and improving environmental health—just to name a few.
      The company is honored to be included among Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies once again.
