(New York, NY—September 12, 2023) Today, TIME debuts World’s Best Companies 2023, in partnership with Statista, a leading international provider of market and consumer data and rankings. The new annual ranking utilizes Statista’s comprehensive research study to identify the top-performing companies across the globe. 

“We are excited to join TIME’s editorial expertise with Statista’s authoritative data gathering and analysis to bring our readers this informative ranking that will help them better understand the many companies that play a role in their lives today,” said TIME Senior Editor Emma Barker Bonomo. 

In addition to the list of the World’s Best Companies, TIME and Statista will partner to produce quantitative lists on a range of topics in the future. 

Highlights from the TIME World’s Best Companies 2023 list include: 

  • Microsoft ranked first overall and for employee satisfaction.
  • Apple, the world’s most valuable company, ranked second overall. 
  • Accenture ranked highest for ESG score, and fifth overall. 

To create the TIME World’s Best Companies list, Statista evaluated companies based on three primary dimensions: employee satisfaction, revenue growth, and sustainability (ESG). See the full methodology here. 

This new quantitative study in partnership with Statista is separate from the annual TIME100 Most Influential Companies list, which is an unranked, news-driven, editorially selected list.
