And Our CEO Says...
Sensirion has been named the best company in Switzerland. What does this mean from the company’s perspective?
Sensirion is very proud to receive this honor from Great Place to Work®. This ranking is a tribute to our unique corporate culture and the Sensirion spirit. We would like to first and foremost thank our employees, whose fair and honest teamwork and exceptional performance contributes to our culture on a daily basis, thus enabling us to be a leader in innovation.
What characterizes the corporate culture at Sensirion?
We have an open and friendly working atmosphere. Respect, appreciation and individual responsibility play a key role in our corporate culture. We have a flat hierarchical structure where processes are non-bureaucratic, the doors are always open and there is a lively exchange between employees. We place a high value on team spirit and collaboration. This is shown clearly every Friday at a quarter to five, when we meet in the skybar with a view of the lake for a beer.
How does Sensirion maintain its company culture despite rapid growth?
What began 20 years ago as an ETH spin-off has grown into a company with more than 750 employees. Of course, much has changed over the years, but one thing has always stayed the same at Sensirion: our employees’ passion for developing innovative products. This is what drives us forward and makes Sensirion the global market leader in sensor technology. To ensure our company culture is able to keep pace with the changes in growth, all employees are called on to actively contribute by critically questioning developments. In recent years, Sensirion has also invested a great deal in the maintenance and development of company values and culture, and will continue to do so in the future. For example, the company organizes culture workshops for all the staff, the annual company weekend and countless social events.
Why is Sensirion a Great Place to Work® for you personally?
For me personally, Sensirion is an amazing place to work thanks to each individual employee. I really value the Sensirion spirit, or simply the “Sensirion family”. The people that work at Sensirion are open, cooperative and ambitious, and pursue the same goals: making innovation and achieving great things. Our employees are willing to explore new and unconventional paths to accomplish this. Entrepreneurial thinking, a pioneering spirit and the commitment of all our staff are what consistently guide us to success and make us the global leader in environmental and flow sensor technology.
