Quintiles is ranked first overall in Fortune’s Healthcare: Pharmacy and Other Services industry category, up from number three in 2015.

Also within its industry category, Quintiles was ranked first or second across all nine “key attributes” which Fortune survey respondents use in evaluating nominated companies. The company was ranked first in the categories of:

· Quality of Products / Services
· Global Competitiveness
· Long-term Investment
· Social Responsibility

Fortune‘s “World’s Most Admired Companies” list is the definitive report card on corporate reputations. Since 1997, Fortune has identified, selected and ranked the World’s Most Admired Companies (http://goo.gl/fhDDwa), uncovering the business practices that make these companies highly regarded among their peers.

“It was an honor and a milestone for Quintiles to be named to Fortune’s list of most admired companies for the first time in 2015,” said Quintiles Chief Executive Officer Tom Pike. “A second consecutive year on the list is a reflection of the caliber and dedication of our 36,000 employees around the world as they work to improve our customers’ probability of success.

“Equally important, Quintiles’ inclusion on the Fortune list is further motivation for us to commit to leadership and growth in line with our values. We never lose sight of our role in improving healthcare and the need to live up to our recognized reputation.”

Most Admired Methodology

The survey employed by Fortune to designate its “World’s Most Admired Companies” list assesses nine reputation drivers considered to be crucial to a company’s global success including financial soundness, long-term investment value, people management, social responsibility, use of assets, quality of management, quality of products/services, innovation and global competitiveness.

These attributes were developed prior to the inception of the Most Admired Companies rankings through a series of interviews with executives and industry analysts to determine the qualities that make a company worthy of admiration.

Raters are asked to evaluate each eligible company on attributes by assigning a score from zero (‘Poor’) to ten (‘Excellent’). For the purposes of the industry rankings, a company’s overall score is determined through a simple average of the individual attribute scores. Companies who rank in the top half of their industry are defined as “most admired” within their industry.
