SAN DIEGO, Dec. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra (NYSE: SRE) (BMV: SRE) is the highest-ranked utility on the Wall Street Journal's Management Top 250 ranking for 2022. The Management Top 250 is one of the most prestigious ranking efforts dedicated to measuring corporate effectiveness. This is the fourth time the company has been named to the Management Top 250, and the second consecutive year it has been ranked highest among industry peers in its category.
"This distinction reflects the concerted efforts of our 20,000 employees, who are unified by our mission to build the leading energy infrastructure company in North America," said Jeffrey W.

The Wall Street Journal assembled its rankings with the help of the Drucker Institute, a think tank based at Claremont Graduate University's Drucker School of Management. Their mathematical model, which includes a total of 34 metrics, serves as the basis for the Management Top 250. This year, more than 900 companies were graded in five categories: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength.
