More than 55,000 interviews with consumers were conducted across the 15 largest markets in the world to measure the corporate reputation of the 100 most visible companies.

The Walt Disney Company and Google have the best corporate reputations in the world with consumers, according to Reputation Institute’s 2014 Global RepTrak® 100 study.

The best companies in the world like The Walt Disney Company and Google see reputation as an input to their strategy not as a passive output from their communications. They use feedback from customers and other key stakeholders to make better business decisions, and that is what makes them trusted and relevant. By working systematically with reputation they have a clear understanding of where to invest and what to say, which increase their return on investments.
