“We are honored to receive these recognitions showcasing the integrity of our brand and the confidence of the people behind it,” said Shelley Simpson, president of J.B. Hunt. “Being among Fortune's most respected and admired companies in the world demonstrates our mission of driving long-term value for our people, customers and shareholders. It’s all made possible by our employees, and the Forbes acknowledgment indicates that the workplace culture we have fostered is one they are proud to recommend.”

In 2023, Forbes also named J.B. Hunt one of the Best Employers for Women. The company received multiple awards for its workplace culture from Newsweek, including America’s Greatest Workplaces (overall), Greatest Workplaces for Women, Greatest Workplaces for Diversity and Greatest Workplaces for Parents and Families.

Forbes America’s Best Large Employers recognizes the top 500 companies receiving the most recommendations from an independent survey of more than 170,000 U.S. employees. Participants were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employer to family and friends and encouraged to assess other employers in their respective industries. Forbes worked with market research firm Statista to determine this year’s recipients. To be considered, a company must employee at least 5,000 people within the U.S. Over 3.5 million employer evaluations were considered. The full list is available on the Forbes website.

Fortune’s list of World’s Most Admired Companies is one of the leading measurements for corporate reputation. To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry to ask executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed. The complete list is available here.
