"Fluor is proud to be recognized as a Best Company for Leaders and especially as the only publicly-traded engineering-construction company on this year's list," said David Seaton, Fluor’s chairman and chief executive officer. "People who are familiar with Fluor know we have a 100-year history and culture that values employees. We understand the power of people and know that our positive culture, combined with leadership processes and systems, ensure we have talented, engaged and aligned professionals serving our clients across the globe. That differentiator enables us to have a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
Chief Executive seeks to identify companies that excel in leadership development, canvassing world-class companies through a questionnaire and interviews to learn what they are doing to identify and nurture people three or more levels down the chain from the chief executive officer.
Rankings are determined by a number of factors including the company’s reputation among its peers as a source for well-rounded talent and the percent of internally recruited senior management.
