BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Whirlpool Corp., parent company of Maytag Commercial Laundry and ADC, earned special recognition from national news publications TIME and Newsweek in recent weeks.
TIME recognized Whirlpool as one of the “World’s Best Companies” for 2023. To create the list, TIME partnered with Statista, a provider of market and consumer data, to conduct a comprehensive research study identifying the top performing companies across the globe.
The companies recognized were identified based on an independent survey sample of more than 150,000 participants from 58 countries. Companies also had to generate revenue of $100 million in 2022 and demonstrate positive revenue growth from 2020 to 2022.
Whirlpool’s inclusion reflects its dedication to delivering products and solutions that enhance the lives of people around the world while contributing to a more sustainable and responsible future.
“We are honored to be named among the world’s best companies by TIME,” says Whirlpool Corp. Chairman and CEO Marc Bitzer. “It is a direct result of our 61,000 global employees’ dedication to integrity, innovation, sustainability.”
In Newsweek, Whirlpool was recognized as one of the “World’s Most Trustworthy Companies” for 2023. To create the list, the publication teamed with Statista to evaluate companies’ business practices and relationships with key stakeholders.
Whirlpool’s inclusion highlights the company’s commitment to do the right thing for employees, consumers, investors and the communities around the world where the company does business.
“One of our enduring values is integrity — this means that across our global business, there is no right way to do a wrong thing,” says Ava Harter, global chief legal officer for Whirlpool Corp. “We are honored to receive this recognition. It reflects the dedication of 61,000 global employees who believe in our mission of improving life at home for consumers. We cannot fulfill this vision if we don’t operate with integrity and trust.”
The companies recognized were identified in an independent survey sample of more than 70,000 participants from 21 countries; 269,000 evaluations were analyzed. The three main public pillars of trust—Customer Trust, Investor Trust, and Employee Trust—were considered.
