Convergys has been honored for the sixth consecutive year by being rated as one of “America’s Most Admired Companies” by
Fortune Magazine.
In ranking the various companies, Fortune Magazine asked 10,000 executives, directors, and securities analysts to evaluate companies in their own industry
based on a list of eight distinctive qualities. These included: innovation, product quality, social responsibility and employee talent, for example.
Convergys was rated second overall nationally for the Diversified Outsourcing industry.
“For six consecutive years, Convergys’ position as one of America’s Most Admired Companies has served as a tribute to the dedication of our employees and
their intense focus on supporting our clients every day,” said Jim Orr, chairman and chief executive officer of Convergys in a statement to the press.
So, it’s like the corporate Oscars.
We make a company appear fashionable, secure an award, and then spend ten million dollars telling everyone about it.
Nice way to ensure that stock prices rise.
And as far as the award standing as a tribute to the talent of the employees, I wonder when that’s going to appear on one of those stupid badge inserts, kind of like the “Powered By People” ones we had a couple of years ago?
For crying out loud, can we please have a break.
