The ranking of "corporate reputation" published by Fortune every year is based on a survey of nearly 3,800 executives, directors, and analysts. Those individuals are asked to select the 10 companies they admire most from 52 industries, ranking them in nine categories including investment value, quality of management, social responsibility, and ability to attract talent. -KARE11
