SAN JOSE, Calif., February 11, 2014 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced its recognition as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in the United States. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
“This recognition points to our unique and extraordinarily high corporate standards,” said Cypress President and CEO T.J. Rodgers. “Hallmarks of the engaged workplace such as leadership, accountability and performance are embedded in our Core Values, the DNA of our company, which are basic values that have changed very little over the last 20 years.
“Our values state that we are a company of smart, hard-working, data-driven problem solvers that rewards personal initiative and team success,” Rodgers said. “Our employees project these attributes every single day. Values cannot be imposed from the top down.”
“The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces understand that employee engagement is not just a buzz word, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business objectives and company values,” said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk. “These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success.”
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), and Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Northern California HR Association.
Cypress will be honored alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Award at the awards gala on April 2, 2014 in San Francisco, California.
