The company we keep

Issues related to responsibility are often far-reaching and complex, and no single company can hope to resolve them alone. To inform and improve our efforts, we work with a wide variety of industry and civic organizations on issues touching virtually every aspect of our business. On occasion, we are honored by peers or stakeholders for our work, and we have appeared regularly in various rankings and on “best of” lists.

Our awards and recognition

We have earned a distinguished reputation over the years. We are among the members of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index® and FORTUNE 500®. We have won the U.S. Department of Labor’s Secretary of Labor’s Opportunity Award. Our work environment, dedicated workforce and expertise have also earned us a place among FORTUNE magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” in America consecutively since 1999. We have also been named to FORTUNE’s list of “Most Admired Companies.” CIO named Qualcomm to its “Top 100” list for exemplifying the highest level of operational and strategic excellence. A full list of our awards and recognition is available on our corporate website.
