What makes HARMAN, HARMAN? It’s not just our cutting-edge technologies and ability to deliver powerful experiences that set us apart from the rest… what makes us truly unique are our people. Our people around the world bring their unique experiences, backgrounds, and ideas to work every day to collaborate, innovate and inform the connected products and solutions we create to make life easier, productive, and entertaining.

In celebration of our team members everywhere and their passion for all-things HARMAN, we challenged our global employees to participate in our “Shutterbug 2023” annual photo contest and share pictures from their daily lives and adventures this summer.
