Aon Hewitt has conducted Top Companies Leadership studies in the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific since 2002, and this is the sixth year it has partnered with The RBL Group and FORTUNE Magazine. The global and regional Top Companies Leaders lists will be announced in the November 2011 issue of FORTUNE Magazine.
