Zebra Technologies has been named one of “America’s Best Employers” by Forbes in the magazine’s annual ranking.
Based on recommendations from current employees and industry professionals, Zebra ranks among the top 500 employers across 25 industries to receive this recognition for its ongoing dedication to company culture and employee relations.
With the visibility Zebra provides to 95% of Fortune 500 companies, businesses become as smart and connected as the world we live in. Realtime information – and visionary products, services and solutions – give enterprises the edge they need to succeed in today’s data-centric world.
Following Zebra’s acquisition of Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise business in October 2014, Zebra has embarked on a culture initiative to progress as One Zebra. This includes the creation of culture clubs and workshops led by employee volunteers, successfully driving a common language aligned to its company values.
Zebra has a global presence that consists of approximately 7 000 employees in more than 122 offices across 81 countries, as well as an extended partner ecosystem in more than 100 countries.
Founded in 1969, Zebra has provided more than 40 years of technology expertise, leadership and innovation. The company owns five regional innovation and design centres with more than 4 200 US and international patents issued and pending.
Michael Terzich, chief administrative officer at Zebra Technologies, comments: “Building an innovative, rewarding company culture starts with creating a values-based workplace environment in which employees are treated as the company’s greatest asset. We will continue to invest in fostering an environment that attracts top industry professionals.
“This recognition is an important milestone toward realising our company’s vision to create a smarter, more connected global business community together with our partners to offer better operational visibility to our customers.”
Forbes “America’s Best Employers” annual list is comprised of over 30 000 employee survey responses at mid-size and large companies in 25 different industries across the US. Respondents were asked to complete a 35-question anonymous survey through an online access panel that ranked both their own employer and other employers in the same industry sector, resulting in a ranking of the country’s top 500. The willingness to recommend one’s own employer on a scale of 1-10 was given the most weight. Additionally, respondents were asked to mention good or bad employers in industries other than their own. To make the final top 500 list, companies had to receive over 100 positive mentions from current employees and industry professionals as well as an additional 20 direct recommendations.
