EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN – Starkey has been named one of the 2023 Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.  This year’s Top Workplaces survey analysis included responses from more than 124,719 employees, and more than 5,000 Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations were invited to participate.

The Top Workplace designation is a testament to Starkey's commitment to fostering an environment where employees can thrive both professionally and personally. This achievement is a result of the company's unwavering dedication to creating a workplace that values diversity, inclusion, and ongoing development.

“This recognition is truly a testament to our employees’ passion and commitment to caring,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “Our team is dedicated to service and improving lives through better hearing, and I want to thank the entire Starkey family for making this a great place to work.”

The survey consisted of 24 questions covering seven areas of organizational health factors to gauge how well employees are working toward a common cause. Those areas include measuring employees’ views on alignment of their company’s overall direction, its values, and cooperation; effectiveness of doing things well, sharing different viewpoints, and encouraging new ideas; employees’ level of connection in feeling appreciated and that their work is meaningful; and employee engagement measures of loyalty, motivation, and willingness to refer their company to others. Other factors include gauging the level of confidence in company leaders; respondents’ views on their manager’s effectiveness and engagement in their employees’ development; and assessing employee benefits, pay and overall work environment.

“Congratulations to our Starkey team for receiving this honor,” said Jessica Perez, Chief People Officer and Executive Vice President of Culture. “Our culture is built around our core values of being caring, fearless, and dedicated, and I am so proud to see those values being lived every day in the work we do.”
