Reputation Institute Ranks Public Perception of Companies Based on Citizenship, Governance, Innovation and More

Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) announced today that it is has ranked among American's Most Reputable Companies by the Reputation Institute, the world's foremost research and advisory firm focused solely on corporate reputations. The US RepTrak® rankings measure the public's perception of companies based on seven dimensions: innovation, leadership, governance, citizenship, workplace, performance, and products.

"We are honored by this recognition because it means that consumers see our brand as a trustmark, and we take that responsibility very seriously," said Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO, Hasbro, Inc. "We challenge ourselves daily to look beyond Hasbro's own interests for opportunities to do what's right – and create an enduring, positive impact within our industry and our world. We could not have achieved this honor without the passion, dedication and ingenuity of our employees, and their commitment to our shared purpose, to make the world a better place for children and their families."

Reputation Institute's RepTrak® model is the gold standard for reputation measurement, providing a one-of-a-kind measurement of how the public views the world's best-known companies. The RepTrak® database is normative, examining 15 stakeholder groups in 20 different industries and more than 55 countries for more than 7,000 companies. The 2017 US RepTrak® 100 examines perceptions of companies by the US general public based on more than 52,000 ratings collected over two months.
