Booz Allen Named to Fortune's “World's Most Admired Companies” List for 10th Straight Year

Feb 10, 2021 8:00 AM ET

To build the annual list of the World’s Most Admired Companies, Fortune and Korn Ferry poll nearly 4,000 corporate executives, directors, and analysts who rate the best-regarded enterprises in their own industry on criteria including investment value, quality of management and products, social responsibility, and the ability to attract talent. 

In 2021, Booz Allen was recognized as one of the world’s best-regarded companies for the 10th time, an accomplishment it has achieved each year since the firm’s IPO. 

The firm received its highest ranking in quality of management and second highest rankings tied among long term-investment value, financial soundness, people management and use of corporate assets. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.

Being named as one of the World’s Most Admired Companies is the latest in a series of high-profile acknowledgements for Booz Allen.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) named Booz Allen a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” for the 11th consecutive year, a designation which reflects a perfect score on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index, and Vault recently ranked Booz Allen fourth among its Best Consulting Firms to Work For.

Booz Allen also received a 100 percent score on the Disability Equality Index®, a nationwide benchmarking tool by Disability:IN and the American Association for People with Disabilities, and was among 98 companies included in the Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index by Working Mother Media.

The firm has made the Working Mother 100 Best Companies list for more than two decades and was named among Forbes’ best employers for veterans and women for 2020. In November, the San Diego Union-Tribune recognized Booz Allen as a top workplace among area employers, and in December, the Washington Business Journal ranked among the top three corporate philanthropists in the Washington, D.C. region.

“Each day, we work to empower people—our colleagues, clients, and community—to change the world by living our company’s purpose and values, which are rooted in collaboration, doing right and embracing the mission at hand,” said Booz Allen Chief People Officer Betty Thompson. “We’re proud of this recognition and of the impact we strive to have for our clients, our employees and the world.”
