Newsweek releases inaugural list of World’s Most Trustworthy Companies; 9 from N.J. are on it

Trust is at the core of so many decisions that we make every day. From shopping and investing to where we choose to work, it is an essential measurement for the important choices we make. With that being said, Newsweek recently released its inaugural list of the World’s Most Trustworthy Companies 2023.

To find the most trustworthy companies in the world, Newsweek and global data research firm Statista completed an independent survey based on a vast sample of more than 70,000 participants in 23 industries from 21 countries.

A total of 269,000 evaluations were analyzed. The participants rated companies they knew and were headquartered in the respective country in terms of all three touchpoints of trust: customer trust, investor trust and employee trust. In all, 1,000 companies in 21 countries and 23 industries are featured.

Consumers evaluated companies on statements such as, “I trust in this company to treat me fairly as its customer,” “I trust that this company is competently led” and “I believe this company treats its employees fairly.”

All stock-listed companies headquartered in one of the target countries with revenues of over $500 million were considered in the study.

Notable companies such as Amazon, Walmart and L’Oréal are on the list. And here are several that call New Jersey home:

  • Church & Dwight, Ewing;
  • American Water Works, Camden;
  • Campbell Soup Co., Camden;
  • Mondelez, East Hanover;
  • Becton Dickinson, Franklin Lakes;
  • Anywhere Real Estate, Madison;
  • Marcus & Millichap, Saddle Brook;
  • Quest Diagnostics, Secaucus;
  • Bristol Myers Squibb, New Brunswick.
