IBM Tops Fortune Magazine’s Global Leader List

FORTUNE magazine’s 2011 Global Top Company for Leaders study named IBM first for the second year in a row. The study ranks 470 global companies based on strength of leadership practices and culture, examples of leader development on a global scale, impact of leadership in communities in which companies operate, business performance and company reputation.

“This recognition reflects IBM’s ongoing commitment to developing leaders from deep within our global organization. This is a discipline that is both world class and uniquely IBM,” said Randy MacDonald, IBM’s senior vice president of human resources, in a speech. “As we enter our second century, leadership development will remain at the top of our agenda as we groom the next generation of leaders skilled at collaborating across teams, cultures, countries and businesses.”
