Tupperware Brands has once again landed on Fortune’s annual ranking of the World’s Most Admired Companies. The global brand has now spent eight consecutive years on the list, where it falls under the Home Equipment, Furnishings category.
To compile its report card on corporate reputation, Fortune ranks nine key attributes such as use of corporates assets, social responsibility and long-term investment value. Tupperware ranked highest in its category for global competitiveness, and second for innovation and use of corporate assets. The company markets its kitchenware, beauty and personal-care products through an independent salesforce of 2.9 million in nearly 100 countries.
“The strength of our mission and our people propels us as a company to continue our success,” Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO, said of Tupperware’s work to empower and support women. “Global competitiveness is one of the priorities of the business, along with the other categories the list is derived from, and we are honored to be ranked on the World’s Most Admired Companies list for the eighth year in a row.”
Tupperware’s efforts on behalf of women extend beyond promoting financial independence. As a natural extension of its business model, the brand also aims to impact lives through opportunity, support and relationships—a philosophy embodied in its Chain of Confidence program. Goings and his wife, Susan, Global Ambassador for the program, recently accepted the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum’s Voice for Women Award in recognition of their work. U.N. Women also tapped Goings to represent Tupperware on its Private Sector Leadership Advisory Council, an initiative focused on economic and political advancement for women.
