TeamHealth Named to FORTUNE Magazine’s List of “World’s Most Admired Companies” for Third Consecutive Year

Press Releases

TeamHealth, a leading physician services organization, was named among “The World’s Most Admired Companies” by FORTUNE Magazine. This is the third consecutive year TeamHealth received the distinction. The annual survey conducted by FORTUNE and the Hay Group division of Korn Ferry, a global people and organizational advisory firm, is given to top executives, directors and financial analysts to identify companies that enjoy the strongest reputations within their industries and across industries.

“It is an honor to be named among ‘The World’s Most Admired Companies’ by FORTUNE for the third consecutive year,” said Leif Murphy, president and CEO of TeamHealth. “This recognition affirms our deeply rooted company values of delivering the highest quality patient care while providing the best-in-class experience for clinicians and hospital and post-acute partners alike.”

FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies list is the definitive report card on corporate reputations. Hay Group has collaborated with FORTUNE annually since 1997 to identify, select and rank the World’s Most Admired Companies and uncover the business practices that make these companies highly regarded among their peers. To compile the rankings, corporate reputation and performance are measured against nine key attributes: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.

METHODOLOGY

Fortune collaborated with our partner Korn Ferry Hay Group on this survey of corporate reputations. We began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. We then winnowed the assortment to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 28 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that pool of 680; the executives who voted work at the companies in that group.

To determine the best-regarded companies in 51 industries, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed. Results were not published in the following categories due to insufficient response rates: Computers, U.S. Energy, Mining/Crude Oil Production, Petroleum Refining, and Pipelines.

To select our 50 All-Stars, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked 3,800 executives, directors, and securities analysts who had responded to the industry surveys to select the 10 companies they admired most. They chose from a list made up of the companies that ranked in the top 25% in last year’s surveys, plus those that finished in the top 20% of their industry. Anyone could vote for any company in any industry.

The difference in the voting rolls explains why some results can seem at odds with each other. For example, Samsung Electronics fell on the All-Star list as its combustible phone batteries singed its sales and stature, but Samsung moved up one notch within the electronics category when votes from only those in that industry were counted.
