SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(NASDAQ: AMZN)—For the third straight year, customers voted Amazon #1 in Harris Poll’s annual corporate reputation survey. Harris Poll surveys U.S. adults to evaluate public perceptions classified into six dimensions of corporate reputation: Workplace Environment, Social Responsibility, Emotional Appeal, Financial Performance, Vision & Leadership, and Products & Services. Over 25,000 U.S. adults were surveyed by Harris Poll between December 11, 2017 and January 12, 2018. Amazon has been in the top ten for the past ten years and #1 for four of the last five years. In addition, Amazon recently topped the ACSI Retail Report in the Internet Retail category for the eighth year in a row. This survey of 50,186 U.S. consumers measures quality and value among retailers nationwide.

“On behalf of Amazonians everywhere, I extend a huge thank you to customers. We wake up each day thinking about how to delight customers and invent on their behalf – and it’s energizing to see the results of these surveys,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “And big kudos to the Amazonians all around the world who are doing this creative and missionary work every day for customers – thank you and congrats!”
