Meet Us Monday: Amelia Thompson, Marketing & Communications Coordinator

Every other Monday, we feature a different employee on our blog to give a little insight into Wurth Electronics.

This week, meet Amelia Thompson, Marketing & Communications in the Watertown, SD USA Office

What do you value most about Wurth Electronics?

The most truthful answer is also the corniest - the people. My colleagues are phenomenal, and make me look forward to coming to work. The knowledge and expertise that each person brings to the table is outstanding and everybody's sense of humor and helpfulness boosts my mood. I also value the company's willingness to help. The great benefits we receive go above and beyond that of any other company.

How do you like to relax?

My way of relaxing ranges from 80-year-old woman to rockstar touring the globe. I either like to hang out with my cat, sip coffee, knit, read books, play piano or ukulele, and complete crossword puzzles, or I hit the gym, go hunting, and go running with my dog. It depends which pet gets to me first.

How has Wurth Electronics invested in your professional development?

My professional development has grown in such a way that I cannot explain. The trainings I have received have helped me tackle obstacles. The way the company pushes me makes me a better person, but they also understand that mistakes do happen. One of their qualities is stated in the company constitution - "It is the privilege of an active amployee to make mistakes," something other companies need to learn.

If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which would you keep?

Pandora (for a steady beat)

Full Fitness (Keeps me going)

Amazon (Because my dog and I NEED matching pajamas)

What is your most used emoji?

My most used emoji is the laughing-crying face. Apparently, I think I'm hilarious
