“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.
