Fluor has appeared on the list every year since 2000.
“Fluor’s 60,000 global employees embody our core values of safety, integrity, teamwork, and excellence on a daily basis,” said David Seaton, chairman and CEO of Fluor, in a statement. “Fortune’s recognition of the importance of these core values is a testament to the outstanding work of our employees on projects around the world.”
The Fortune list, which is now in its 35th year, is generated in collaboration with Korn Ferry. Rankings are compiled based on queries of thousands of executives, directors, and analysts.
Companies are evaluated based on nine attributes, including their ability to attract and retain talent, quality of management, social responsibility to the community and the environment, innovation, quality of products or services, wise use of corporate assets, financial soundness, long-term investment value, and effectiveness in doing business globally.
BMW, Lockheed Martin, Adidas, Michelin, Sealed Air, and Siemens were just a few of the other companies with a presence in the Upstate named to the list.
The 2018 list will be featured in Fortune’s February issue.
