Fortune selects GE as most admired company. (Presstime Notes).
"Tireless innovation. Robust financials. The ability to lure and keep the smartest people. According to more than 4,000 businesspeople Fortune surveyed late last year, no company in the nation demonstrates such enviable qualities better than General Electric," the publication declared.
The survey sample consisted of the country's leading business executives, directors and analysts. When asked to determine the top ten companies from a list of the 1,000 largest U.S. corporations (ranked by revenues) and the largest U.S. subsidiaries of foreign-owned companies, GE came out on top.
Tanya Fratto, GE Superabrasives VP and general manager, says, "GE Superabrasives and all other businesses that comprise the GE family have contributed a great deal to earning this recognition by not only creating and delivering products and services that are second to none and through fiscal results, but also by actively making a commitment to local community services."
In October 2000, GE led Fortune's World's Most Admired Company Survey for the third year in a row. The Fortune findings mirror the results of a Financial Times survey published in December 2000, in which GE was named the world's most respected company for the third consecutive year.
