December 03, 2018

CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2018 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) has again been named one of America’s most effectively managed companies by the Drucker Institute’s Management Top 250. The ranking analyzes and compares the performance of major US companies in five key areas: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength.

JLL improved to #23 this year (following a ranking of #35 in 2017), out of the 250 listed companies and is the only commercial real estate company in the top 150. JLL scored particularly high in the areas of innovation and social responsibility.

“We’re pleased to be recognized again by the Drucker Institute for our efforts to grow and change in the dynamic business world,” said JLL’s Greg O’Brien, CEO, Americas. “Commitments to continuous innovation and being a good corporate citizen are some of the core elements of our firm, and we look forward to continuing to evolve and improve in those and other areas moving forward.”

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.
