Garmin makes it into the top 10 list of America’s best employers


Forbes has recognized Garmin Ltd. as one of America’s Best Employers in its annual ranking of companies. Garmin, which made the list for the third straight year, is ranked 5 after being listed in 37 position last year. Forbes announced the list in partnership with market research company, Statista. It covers the top 500 companies in 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,” Cliff Pemble, Garmin president and CEO, said in a statement. “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.”

Employers on the list are chosen based on an independent, anonymous survey of more than 50,000 employees. The survey identifies companies that employees like to work for and would recommend to others based on questions about work-related topics including work conditions, salary, potential for development and company image.

Garmin has more than 13,000 associates in 135 countries. The company is celebrating its 30 anniversary in 2019.
