CSRHub Metrics Included in Harvard Business Review Top CEO’s List 2019

The Harvard Business Review (HBR) just released its prestigious ranking of the 100 best-performing CEOs in the world. The top CEO in the S&P Global 1200 is Jensen Huang, CEO of the U.S. technology company NVIDIA. The top ten CEOs are from companies including Nvidia, Salesforce.com, Kering, Texas Instruments, Iberdrola, Adobe, Mastercard, KBC, Microsoft and LVMH. You can see the full list here. 

HBR notes that they made an important change in methodology this year.  “Since 2015 our ranking has been based not only on financial performance but also on environmental, social, and governance (ESG)

ratings. For the past four years we’ve weighted ESG scores to account for 20% of each CEO’s final ranking. This year we tweaked the formula, increasing that share to 30%. The shift reflects the fact that a rapidly growing number of funds and individuals now focus on far more than bottom-line metrics when they make investment decisions. One sign of this changing sensibility: In August 2019, 181 U.S. CEOs who are members of the Business Roundtable signed a statement affirming that the purpose of a corporation is to serve not just shareholders but four other groups of stakeholders: employees, customers, suppliers, and communities.”

This change in weighting significantly impacted ranking results. For example, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, a top CEO every year since 2014, fell off the list owing to relatively low ESG scores. “The incorporation of 30% ESG data signals a growing shift of perception in what matters to be the best,” said Cynthia Figge, CEO and Cofounder of CSRHub. “We are honored to have CSRHub’s ESG (environment, social, governance) metrics included in the methodology for the fourth year in a row, and now determine 15% of the HBR Ranking of the World’s Best-Performing CEOs.”

You can see the full report available in Harvard Business Review Magazine, found here.

The Drucker Institute 2018 Management Top 250 Rankings includes CSRHub Metrics

Drucker Institute 2018 Management Top 250

CSRHub is honored to once again have our metrics included in the Drucker Institute Management Top 250 Rankings this year.

The Drucker Institute has brought together five dimensions of corporate performance—Customer Satisfaction, Employee Engagement and Development, Innovation, Social Responsibility and Financial Strength—to create a holistic perspective based on Peter Drucker’s core principles.

"As the Drucker Institute's corporate rankings and the related list featured in The Wall Street Journal, the 'Management Top 250,' hit their second year, we've started fielding a lot of calls from major companies wanting to know more about their scores and how they can improve on them," said Rick Wartzman, director of the Drucker Institute's KH Moon Center for a Functioning Society. "This makes it all the more essential that our data providers are rock solid and that the metrics we receive from them are unimpeachable. CSRHub is a hugely important resource for us in this way, as we feature its data in two of our categories—Customer Satisfaction and Social Responsibility. We're really thrilled to be partnering with CSRHub."

You can learn more about the 2018 measure on The Drucker Institute’s website at https://www.drucker.institute/programs/company-rankings/, with the full ranking of all 752 companies available at https://www.drucker.institute/2018-drucker-institute-company-ranking/.
