The Companies of the Year


An interactive version of our annual Blue Ribbon list.


Who are 2016’s top corporate dogs? This year, 34 names showed up on at least four of our seven most rigorous annual rankings—the Fortune 500, ­Global 500, Best Companies to Work For, Change the World list, World’s Most Admired Companies, 100 Fastest-Growing Companies, and Businessperson of the Year. Now they’re on one more: our Blue Ribbon list.

If you’re in the hunt for a new job, these companies could be a good place to start your search. After all, they’re either profitable, helping to change the world, highly regarded by their own employees, admired by others, or a combination of these attributes.
