SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, has made the Forbes 2017 list of 100 Most Trustworthy Companies In America. Vocera was listed in the small market cap group, which included companies valued between $250 million and $1 billion.
“Trust is a core value at Vocera. Customers rely on our products and services to help deliver safe, high-quality patient care every day,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. “Being named one of the most trustworthy companies by Forbes is a testament to our reliability and the strength of our mission to improve the lives of patients, families and care teams.”
Each year, Forbes looks at companies that rate as the most trustworthy based on accounting and governance practices. Starting with a roster of 2,300 non-financial companies in the United States worth at least $250 million, Forbes, with assistance from MSCI ESG Research, compiles a top-100 list. Factors considered include high-risk behaviors like regulatory actions, amended filings, revenue and expense recognition methods, and bankruptcy risk.
The list is sorted into three groups: large cap companies with market caps of $5 billion or more, mid cap companies between $1 and $5 billion, and small cap companies between $250 million and $1 billion. These market caps – and the data with which MSCI tabulates its ratings – are based on financial statements from the four quarters through Q3 2016. Each quarter’s analysis is based on a rolling 12-month basis to make up for firms that operate in industries greatly affected by seasonality.
