Fortune’s Blue Ribbon Companies 2021

Must read

[ad_1]

Making it onto a single Fortune list is impressive. Those that rank on several deserve a list of their very own.

To qualify for Fortune’s annual Blue Ribbon list, a company must appear on at least four of our 10 most rigorous annual rankings: the Fortune 500, Global 500, 100 Best Companies to Work For, Change the World, Future 50, World’s Most Admired Companies, Fastest-Growing Companies, Most Powerful Women, Most Powerful Women International, and Businessperson of the Year.

Three companies tied this year for the top spot: Amazon.com, Adobe, and Progressive each appeared on a total of seven lists. Incidentally, all of their CEOs appear on our Businessperson of the Year list—Jeff Bezos at No. 7, Shantanu Narayen at No. 8, and Tricia Griffith at No. 10.

Five companies landed on a total of six lists, while 10 companies made it onto five. This year’s full Blue Ribbon list is below.
