Most notably, Burke is known throughout the company for her commitment to developing individual employees and effective managers. As an example, she customizes Leadership and Management Development forums to align with corporate strategies; these forums develop skills and share knowledge to reach organizational objectives. Besides her focus on developing leaders, TriQuint’s employee headcount growth and industry-leading retention of valuable talent has been expertly managed through Burke’s leadership.

“Debbie is a business partner with a passion for excellence in support of our customers and employees. She leads with enthusiasm, is both encouraging and demanding in setting high standards, and is trusted by all those she works with because she cares as much for the people as she does for the business,” said Ralph Quinsey, TriQuint President and Chief Executive Officer.

Burke has embraced the “ Lean” concept of continuous improvement to optimize the quality and efficiency of the HR department. To support TriQuint’s growth initiatives, she conceived a new model that transformed the “traditional staffing group” into a strategic, proactive sourcing team to recruit the specialized talent TriQuint needs. Once the right candidates join TriQuint, the company’s impressive development, training and benefits programs help retain them. Burke has encouraged her team to develop programs for the company’s “ Live Well” initiative. Employees can offset healthcare costs through education and doctor visits for preventative care. The company also sponsors friendly competition like “Most Active Site” contests to increase exercise and spark interest toward wellness goals around the world. Other stand-out HR benefits include a tuition reimbursement program, sabbaticals and Technical Ladder career paths. Innovation is rewarded at TriQuint, and employees are passionate about transforming how the world communicates. The company is currently hiring for a variety of jobs.

TriQuint provides innovative RF solutions for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, as well as the global networks that transport voice, data and video communications. The company experienced its sixth consecutive year of record revenue in 2011, and was named to Fortune magazine’s annual 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list. Additionally, TriQuint has been on the Business Journal’s “Most Admired Company” list in the Oregon technology category the last four years.

The HR Leadership Awards program is an annual event created not only to shine a spotlight on the strategic importance of the HR field but to “recognize the region’s top human resources executives for the excellent work they do in a somewhat unheralded field of expertise.”
