At Synaptics, we strive to make a positive impact on the world and to empower others to do the same. We have multiple events, including All-Hands, “Ask-me-anything” and ‘SET-unplugged” events, for our employees to have open, ongoing conversations with senior leaders to discuss our workplace and culture, learn new topics, and build community with colleagues and peers. We also use an independent employee engagement survey to understand how employees are feeling, and to evolve and enhance our employee experience.

Today more than ever we live in a world dependent on connection. Synaptics technology and innovation is at the core of many devices that enable connection but we know that the true connection and the lifeblood of the company is the human connection. Our employees, families, communities, and customer partnerships are the heartbeat of the company and we strive to strike a balance between our dedication to the work we do every day and to serve the communities where we thrive. I am proud to lead Synaptics through the next stage of growth and connection to the world around us.
