Jones Lang LaSalle Named to Fortune’s 2009 “World’s Most Admired Companies” List

Hong Kong and Macau, 16 March 2009—FORTUNE has announced that Jones Lang LaSalle has been named for the second consecutive year to its list of “World’s Most Admired Companies,” the definitive report card on corporate reputations. The firm was recognized as one of the real estate industry’s leaders based on criteria that include corporate social responsibility, quality of services and global effectiveness.
“Our people across the globe work diligently to drive value for our clients,” said Colin Dyer, Jones Lang LaSalle CEO and President.   “It is an honor to be recognized for the responsible corporate citizenship, superior client service and integrated global platform that support their successful efforts.”
FORTUNE’s survey partners at Hay Group, a global management consulting firm, started with some 1,400 companies: the FORTUNE 1,000—the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue; non-U.S. companies in FORTUNE’s Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more; and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S. They then sorted the companies by industry and selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the ten largest for each U.S. industry.
The survey covers 64 industries: 25 international industries and 39 primarily U.S.-market industries. To create the 64 industry lists, Hay Group asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value to corporate social responsibility. This year only the best are listed: A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey.
The full list and related stories appear in the March 16 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands and at
