America’s Most Innovative Companies
Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business, along with the Norwegian School of Economics, and market research firm Rockbridge Associates, Inc., announced the top innovators from the American Innovation Index™ (Aii), the only survey in the US measuring company innovativeness based on customers’ experiences. The study also tracks customer perceptions of social innovativeness to give a complete picture of how companies impact customers and society. The Gabelli School will recognize the top companies with an innovation award to be presented at the 2nd annual American Innovation Conference to be held in October in New York.
The Social Innovation Index
The survey also measures social innovation through the Social Innovation Index™ (Sii), which is the degree to which customers of companies perceive them to innovate in ways that benefit society and the environment.
The top 20 companies on the Social Innovation Index™ will also receive awards from Fordham, including: Honda, Toyota, John Deere, Ford, Navy Federal, General Motors, Aflac, Chick-fil-a, Trader Joe’s, General Electric, USAA, Stanley Black and Decker, Weber, Ikea, Nissan, Google, Hyundai, Apple, Whirlpool and LG.
