December 07, 2018

CHICAGO, Dec. 7, 2017 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) has been named one of America’s most effectively managed companies by the Drucker Institute’s Management Top 250. The inaugural ranking analyzes and compares the performance of major US companies on five key areas: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength.

JLL ranks 35th out of the 250 listed companies and is the only commercial real estate company in the top 100. JLL scored particularly high in the areas of innovation and employee engagement and development.

“This ranking reflects several of our firm’s key ambitions such as being a positive force in our communities, attracting and retaining the best talent and ensuring client satisfaction,” said JLL’s Greg O’Brien, CEO, Americas. “We’re proud to be included in the Drucker Institute’s landmark ranking of company performance and look forward to even more success in these areas in the future.”

The Drucker Institute, named after the late business expert Peter Drucker, works to ensure his management philosophy is used in today’s business world. Its mission is “strengthening organizations to strengthen society.”

Rather than rank companies on a single measure such as profits or productivity, the Management Top 250 takes a more holistic approach. The five areas of customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength reflect Drucker’s core principles.
