Cisco Live highlights the extraordinary pace of change in the technology sector, and in the past year we have seen a significant shift towards a network-centric world.  At Cisco we have always believed the network is the platform for innovation, and now more than ever organisations globally are seeing the advantages of an intelligent network.

Cisco on Fortune’s “World’s #MostAdmired Companies” List

Once again, Cisco is honored to be on Fortune Magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” List.  Fortune tells us that the Most Admired list is the “definitive report card on corporate reputations.” We are also included in the Top 10 “Most Admired Tech Companies” list.

Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers stated, “We are honored to be recognized by our peers as one of the most admired companies in the world. We know we would not be on this prestigious list without our customers, our innovative employees, our partners and our investors. So, on behalf on all of them, we thank Fortune for this honor and will strive to live up this honor each and every day.”

Congratulations to all Cisco employees who develop the best technology in the world and help solve our customers’ most pressing business needs.  Congratulations also to our fellow Silicon Valley companies on this list: Apple, Google, Intel, E-Bay and Facebook.  The full list is here.

And, as our CEO reminds us, those companies that are on top today can be gone or on the bottom if they miss a market transition. To further prove this point, Fortune also includes a list of companies that were on their FIRST list of companies ranked by reputation from 1983. Seven companies that were on that list, including Kodak, Wang and Rockwell are no longer around.  So, if you are a Cisco employee reading this, my advice for you is this: pat yourself on the back, then GET BACK TO WORK*!! : )

 The methodology and survey for this list, developed at Hay Group, is as follows:
