The Right Kind of Fortune
Once again FedEx has been named to the FORTUNE World’s Most Admired Companies list. FedEx ranked #10 for 2013, and has ranked on the list for 11 of the last 14 years.
But it’s not about the numbers.
It’s understandable the factors used to determine the ranking include financial management, service quality, social responsibility and global orientation. I’m proud of that strength of our business and our culture. We are one of the most admired global shipping giants on the planet for a reason – our people.
Go to any hub in any global market and you’ll see FedEx move the world’s economy with choreography that combines the precision of technology and the balance of art. Go to any marketing and sales office and listen while team members design global solutions to customers’ complex shipping needs. Go to our communications team and hear why reputation IS our brand.
Every day our reputation across the globe is influenced by the attitudes and actions of our executives and individual team members. It is our team members that actually differentiate FedEx from the competition.
The business success of FedEx is because we compete in the marketplace with our people – their drive for excellence, their solutions-oriented mindset, their global teamwork. It’s not something you can fake.
So it is FedEx – the company – that made the list. It is the 300,000 team members who can take a bow.
