OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN) today announced that Forbes recognized Garmin as one of America’s Best Employers in 2019 for the third consecutive year. Garmin ranked No. 5 in the large employers category, up from No. 37 in the prior year. The list of honorees was announced by Forbes in partnership with market research company, Statista, and features the top 500 companies across 25 industry sectors that employ more than 5,000 people.
“We are truly honored and proud to again be recognized by Forbes as one of the best employers in the country,” said Cliff Pemble, Garmin president and CEO. “Garmin employees are passionate about what we do, and we share a deep commitment to serving our customers and each other. Of the many qualities that make Garmin a great place to work, it is the commitment of our employees that sets us apart.”
Forbes America’s Best Employers are chosen based on an independent, anonymous survey of more than 50,000 employees. The survey evaluation identifies companies that employees like to work for and would recommend to others based on questions about work-related topics including working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image.
This designation reinforces Garmin’s ongoing commitment to employee engagement, inclusion and diversity. With more than 13,000 associates in 35 countries around the world, Garmin is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The company maintains, just as it did in 1989, a vertically integrated business model where design, manufacturing, distribution, sales, marketing and support roles are primarily in-house creating opportunities for employees. Garmin designs GPS navigation and wearable technology for five primary markets, including automotive, aviation, fitness, marine and outdoor recreation.
