What you should know
Stryker invests in the growth of its people in a variety of ways and encourages employees to take control of their development. Through diverse opportunities and exciting professional challenges, Stryker strives to keep its people engaged in their own careers within the organization and promotes internal mobility.
Stryker’s talent-based hiring and development practices ensure employees are able to do what they do best every day. Many new employees take an online StrengthsFinder™ survey, which reveals strengths across 34 themes of talent, based on instinctual, top-of-mind responses that are not likely to change over time. Employees may work with a certified strengths coach, who walks them through their results to help them understand and learn how to make the best use of their strengths, as well as enhance their performance and peer relationships. The coaches also work with managers to understand their team’s StrengthsFinder reports so they can better manage and coach them individually and as a group.
Another platform, SuccessFactors, supports talent development by allowing employees to create an online resume that outlines their strengths, experience, and goals. This searchable database helps human resources leaders to match employees’ skills with internal job opportunities across the company.
One employee reflects on how Stryker’s approach to development impacted her and how it helps enhance the culture. "You are given unique opportunities to cross train with other departments to learn more about the business and possibilities for growth within the company. When you are promoted to another department, it is celebrated by your previous department. We have a very special sense of family here and genuinely care about one another."
Another employee shares how unique Stryker’s commitment to employee growth is in the corporate world. He says, "As a working professional for over 15 years, I have never had a company show such support in developing their employees."
