Achievements that Lear Corporation said had helped it earn a place on Fortune’s latest list for 2022 included automotive industry awards for quality, customer service, innovation, diversity and workplace culture, and the establishment of new joint ventures and partnerships.
In addition, Lear employees have worked to help people and the planet by organising free vaccination clinics, donating food and planting trees in countries around the world.
