Which companies have the best reputations and garner the most respect? The Reputation Institute and it's RepTrak and its "annual ranking of the most reputable companies in the United States" have been around for the last 20 years. They "…measure more than 7,600 companies per year, across 50 countries, and 20+ different industries."
When you read the lists, you will see that the toy and play companies garner a great deal of respect. We should all feel proud of these companies and how they represent our industry.
