Jun. 27, 2023—Beacon EmbeddedWorks, a discoverIE Group company and a leading global provider of embedded electronics, has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. Top Workplaces is based on a survey conducted by an independent third party.

The analysis included responses from 124,719 employees at Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

In addition to competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, Beacon EmbeddedWorks provides a meaningful and purpose-driven work environment where all team members work toward a common goal of creating innovative electronics that help to improve the world and people’s lives.

Beacon EmbeddedWorks fosters a culture of inclusivity and continued investments in employee growth. Programs highlighted by employees in the survey included education and development opportunities, celebrating employees’ cultural heritage, and giving back to the local community through volunteer and donation programs.

Sample employee survey comments included, “My ideas are heard and valued. I genuinely enjoy coming into work each day.” and, “The culture is genuine, and people do really care about doing well. Leadership has shown trust in us, and we also have fun events for employees and the community.”

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota and have a participation rate of 35% or higher. Beacon EmbeddedWorks had a record 95% employee participation rate. Over 5,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely based on employee responses.
