AT&T named the Most Admired Company in telecommunications by Fortune magazine8
As a change from the format from other years, this year the world's and America's Most Admired Companies were put together in one global survey. To determine the most admired firms, executives from Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies were asked, along with financial analysts, to find which corporations have the strongest reputation inside and outside their industry. Other things like the ability to attract and retain talented employees, the quality of products and services and management, and the level of social responsibility were rated to come up with the list.
