Does company size drive JUST Capital’s ranking?
We studied the company size of the winners of JUST Capital’s 2016 rankings, the JUST 100. In ranking the JUST 100 against their industry peers on revenue, market capitalization, and number of employees, we found that contrary to many investor’s perceptions, it isn’t only the very largest companies that can “afford” to behave justly. While there is moderate size bias toward larger companies – the JUST 100 on average rank on the 66th percentile of size based on the three measures – the winners in a number of industries were actually below median size. The JUST 100 winners in five out of thirty-two industries (banks, capital markets, energy equipment, healthcare equipment, and commercial services) were smaller than their median industry peers. Details by industry and metric can be found in the full presentation.
