Irving, Texas — Fluor Corporation was named by Fortune magazine as the top-ranked engineering and construction company in its 2017 World’s Most Admired Companies list. It is the sixth year in a row Fluor has earned the top designation among its peers in the engineering and construction market sector.

“To be recognized as a World’s Most Admired Company and first in our sector for six straight years is a tremendous honor and a testament to our 60,000 employees who work hard every day to make a difference in some of the most extreme conditions and locations all over the globe,” said David Seaton, Fluor’s chairman and chief executive officer.

Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list is considered a definitive report card on corporate reputations. Fortune collaborates with Korn Ferry Hay Group, a global management consulting firm, to identify, select and rank the world’s most admired companies. The rankings are compiled by querying thousands of executives, directors and analysts to measure corporate reputation and performance against nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. This year marks the 34th year of Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list.

The 2017 World’s Most Admired Companies list will be featured in Fortune’s March issue. More details can be found at
