The results are in, and Johnson & Johnson has been named to Fortune’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies for the 17th year, ranking in the top 20. Johnson & Johnson also placed #1 in the Pharmaceutical category worldwide for the sixth consecutive year, making it the highest-ranked healthcare company to appear on the top companies list in 2019.

To compile its annual list of the best-regarded companies around the globe, Fortune asked hundreds of executives to rate organizations across dozens of industries on such criteria as quality of management, innovativeness, social responsibility and an ability to attract and retain talented people.

The recognition is particularly rewarding for the company since much of the judging criteria aligns with the values outlined in Our Credo, Johnson & Johnson's guiding mission statement, which celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2018.
