Hormel Foods Makes Top 100 On Impressive List of America’s Best-Run Companies

Hormel Foods once again secured a spot on the Management Top 250 list, an annual ranking of America’s best-run companies.

Hormel Foods was ranked No. 93 on the 2020 list, and has made the grade all four times since the Drucker Institute began evaluating organizations and publishing its findings in The Wall Street Journal.

According to the Drucker Institute, “We rank America’s largest publicly traded companies according to Peter Drucker’s principles of effectiveness – ‘doing the right things well.’”

The Drucker Institute measures customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength, relying on more than 30 data points from third-party sources. Hormel Foods received especially high marks in the categories of customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, and social responsibility.

The Drucker Institute, named for the late author, educator and management guru Peter Drucker, is part of Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, Calif. The institute’s ranking spotlights U.S. publicly traded companies that are part of a specified index and meet or exceed at least one of two financial thresholds. Eight hundred and sixty five companies were evaluated for their effectiveness.
