LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – Oct. 11, 2022 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today announced it has been named to Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces® list for the second consecutive year. The company ranked #42 among the top 100 companies recognized in the publication.
“At Zebra, our employees are the key to our success, and we have built a strong culture based on our vision, values and continuously listening to our employees,” said Jeff Schmitz, Chief Human Resources and Marketing Officer, Zebra Technologies. “Our goal is to continue to be a company people love by supporting work flexibility, addressing wellbeing and creating an inclusive environment where employees can bring their whole selves to work each day.”

“As a result of ‘The Great Resignation,’ more companies recognize the importance of focusing on employee satisfaction to not only attract but retain top talent,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek. “The businesses on this year’s list clearly demonstrated that commitment.”
Produced in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company, the Newsweek list results were determined after surveying more than 1.4 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000. The list recognizes companies that have earned the loyalty and respect of the people who work for them.
"The companies on this list represent the best at placing love at the center of their employee's experience," said Louis Carter, CEO, Best Practice Institute. "The number of applications this year and analysis of survey data reinforces our original findings that love is the strongest predictor of the strength of a company's culture, employee engagement, and satisfaction."
