Leidos has landed the 292nd spot on the Fortune magazine’s list of top 500 U.S. companies by revenue for calendar year 2018.

“Having the fourth largest jump on the list, up 89 spots this year, is a recognition of our team’s effort and focus on the right kind of growth,” Roger Krone, Leidos chairman and CEO, said in a statement published Tuesday.

Krone, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, added the company will continue its efforts to attract a diverse and highly-skilled workforce.

The companies that made the Fortune 500 list have $12.8 trillion in combined revenue and 28.2 million employees worldwide.

Leidos was also named to Forbes’ 2018 America’s Best Employers list in May and to the Military Times’ Best for VETS index in April.
