Barbara Baylor joined Silicon Labs in 2006 as the distribution coordinator in Austin. This role gives her the opportunity to interact with virtually every department and has allowed her to interact and form relationships with Silicon Labs employees around the world. Barbara says she looks forward to coming to work every day, “because you never know who you will meet or what you will learn.” On a typical work day, her responsibilities include monitoring printers on all floors, making bindings for training manuals, and wrapping, shipping, and receiving packages. “I enjoy helping people and I want to help everyone to be successful.”
Being a native of Germany, Barbara enjoys working at a company that is multicultural and one that believes in hiring, fostering, and empowering great talent. “I like that you are not just a number. You are a person with a name and a story.” Because she has worked here for 12 years, she’s heard many stories and connected people from the same home countries or with similar interests and hobbies. She has also received hundreds of post cards from Silicon Labs employees traveling across the world. These postcards cover three bulletin boards and serve as a reminder of the relationships she’s built here. “It’s nice to receive post cards from the beautiful places people travel and have that connection with them.”
Prior to joining the Silicon Labs team, she spent 25 years at the Deutsche Post, a German postal service. When asked if she could travel to any country, Barbara expressed wanting to return to Germany. It has been 10 years since she last visited her home country, and she “looks forward to seeing her family and friends” in October.
We are thankful to have someone so generous and dedicated on the Silicon Labs team. Thank you, Barbara, for keeping us all connected and helping us be successful!
