TE Connectivity, of Schaffhausen, Switzerland, a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has been named among the 2020 Best Workplaces for Innovators by Fast Company.
The annual honor, developed in collaboration with Accenture, recognizes 100 companies that have built a culture that empowers employees at all levels to create new products, improve operations and take risks.
TE was honored for the broad range of ways the company encourages innovation, including an incubator launched in 2017 called TE Time. Through this program, participants are encouraged to work creatively on new ideas that lie outside the scope of their daily work. Though it is a young program, TE Time has already resulted in at least seven patent filings.
Additionally, TE’s most successful innovators are invited to the company’s annual global technical conference, TechCon, which celebrates people who have developed products that financially and strategically contribute to the future of TE and the industry at large.
