Innerspace Electronics, Inc.
Innerspace Electronics, Inc. (IEI) is owned by a husband-and-wife team, and most days, the entire staff gathers around the company’s large kitchen table to enjoy lunch together. In between their shop talk, employees chat about weekend plans, and learn about each other’s lives. The owners even bring their dog, Windy, to work every day. When one employee returned from her maternity leave, IEI made it possible for her to bring her baby to work, allotting a separate space for her to accommodate the baby’s nursing and napping needs. All of these elements create a unique blend between work and life. Outside the office, the IEI team gives back to the community by donating labor and equipment to the ELF Foundation as well as the Pleasantville Cottage School for underprivileged children.
“We really strive to have an open-door policy in the company. We want our employees to feel heard and to know that their opinions matter. We also like to promote from within as much as possible. It fosters a healthy competition amongst the employees and, again, makes everyone feel very valued.”
