Ranks highest in real estate industry for global competitiveness and people management


CHICAGO, March 3, 2015 – JLL (NYSE:JLL) has been named to FORTUNE magazine's 2015 Most Admired Companies list. FORTUNE and global management consulting firm Hay Group survey top executives, directors and financial analysts each year to compile the list of companies that enjoy the strongest reputations within and across industries.  

“Being named a FORTUNE Most Admired Company honors the talent and commitment of our colleagues around the world,” said Colin Dyer, JLL President and Chief Executive Officer. “Winning this award confirms their ability to provide superior advice and services to our clients.”

FORTUNE'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 Most Admired Companies list 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.

JLL ranked first within the real estate industry for the attributes of people management and global competitiveness, and was recognized for excellence in innovation, social responsibility, financial soundness and long-term investment.

The Most Admired Companies list can be found on the FORTUNE website. For more information on how the rankings are determined, please view the full methodology on Hay Group’s website.
