We are honored to be recognized by our employees as one of 102 companies nominated and surveyed based on organizational health, engagement and leadership.

We understand the importance of work/life balance as an essential for happy and healthy associates. We also recognize that our associates are the most valuable resource, so we provide many perks and benefits, including: career growth opportunities, on-the-job training, educational support, computer grants, financial and estate planning assistance, counseling, and maternity and paternity leave. More details about Samtec’s culture are available here.

Here’s what some Samtec Colorado Springs associates said in the survey:

The culture at Samtec is unmatched. You could be an engineer anywhere, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a company where the culture is this good.”

We get respect from all employees. They (Samtec) take care of issues when they arise in a very ethical manner. I love the values we have since we all want this company to succeed.”

Being able to directly apply my degree as I’m earning it, and doing work that I’m proud of. I am actually doing the thing I have studied very hard to be able to do, which is a great feeling.”

I get to do work that benefits others. It may just be microelectronics, but our products go into Naval radar systems, stoplights, medical and surgical devices. It helps someone somehow and I think that’s pretty neat.”

I never saw myself working in the electronics industry, but because of the culture and the work itself, I am happier than I could have ever expected to be in my career as an engineer.”

…I like how mental, physical, and even spiritual health are encouraged. A burnt out employee is not a great employee, and I think Samtec understands that.”

We also care deeply about the communities in which our associates live and are proud to be involved in charitable efforts including philanthropic activities, environmental initiatives, health and safety projects, and community service. Check out Samtec Colorado Springs’ first “Bike to Work” event.
