It's About People in Quotations

The quote above is more than just words. This is something that is manifested within our company and our culture every day. It should be remembered more often than it is. It can be reflected upon in your personal or professional life. Just take it from Brian Hosmer, a global business specialist,

"My own personal and professional perspectives have expanded more than I could have imaged in my years with the company, and the best is always ahead!  

We provide support to each other, celebrate our successes together and go about our days with empathy and understanding. Our motto “More Than You Expect” isn’t just a cliché saying, it’s a way of life for us and truly one-of-a-kind when it comes to the workplace! "

After all, it really does come down to people, whatever it may be.

Companies that prioritize their people over everything else are the companies that succeed. At Würth Elektronik we have employees from many countries, cultures, and backgrounds; yet we all ended up working for the same company, working towards the same goal. We care about who you are and the rest is a bonus.

When a customer approaches us, we want them to know that they are talking to a real person who will do whatever it takes to help them succeed. Without customers, there would be no employees and without the outstanding people we have there would be no customers.

We hold our values close so we never forget what we are here for. Our values guide our actions in every department, in every position, in every country. WE are…

Close - we are one family
Passionate - we want to inspire
Competent - we have the expertise
Authentic - we are genuine.

Numbers two and three on the list above are the reason we started hosting and attending events. What started as attending a few events per year has grown into participating in 100s per year whether it be as a guest or as a host. Check out our events here. Events are great, but we wanted to share our expertise with the people that had a burning curiosity, or wanted to stay up to date with new products and trends. So we decided that we were going to start our very own webinar and podcast! If you would like to subscribe to our emails so you never have to miss any events, webinars, podcasts, or seminars you can do so here. We would love to see you there!

We are also actively giving back to the planet by making our processes and products more environmentally sustainable. We are always looking new areas we can improve. In fact, this year we implemented the 1 tree planted campaign. For every sample ordered, we plant 1 tree. In 2022 alone, we planted 5,075 trees. We have also introduced a new outer packaging for our design kits that is made from grass, you heard that right, grass. The packaging is also 100% recyclable. These are just a few of the things in the works, and we can't wait to continue on the path to sustainability. Helping the planet helps the people that call this planet home. It all boils down to "It's about people". 

Bailey Niedert, an accounting administrator, said, "Being a part of a company that acknowledges that there can always be improvements made is so important to me personally, because it also reminds me that I can also always improve. I heard a saying once that I always remind myself, 'When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.' and I think that is what this company does."

I couldn't have summarized it better myself. In fact, most of our best ideas come from our employees. In 2022, one of our employees had the idea of sponsoring a robotic team that competes in BattleBots on Discovery. We pride ourselves in sponsoring and supporting local programs, teams, and events in our field. We chose Uairrior specifically for a multitude of reasons. They are from Brazil and are an up-and-coming team in the United States. They aren't well known, yet, but have a proven track record of success. They are a university created and run team, and at Würth Elektronik know that the success of our future lies in the hands of those still in school. WE love supporting the learning and growth of our future!

Helping people, learning from people, and surrounding our day to do activities around the people is what makes our company and our company culture so strong. We pride ourselves on it, and can't wait to see where we will be in the coming years.
