The list was based on results from consulting firm Performance Inspired, Inc., which surveyed 2,175 consumers online to identify these “most inspiring” companies. These consumers responded by explaining the five companies they found most inspirational and why.
According to a separate Forbes article, Goodwill was one of the smaller companies on the list that did well because of a good story behind the name.
