What you should know

Growing talent is one of the core values at Stryker—and for good reason! Stryker's leadership team believes that the more opportunities they provide to employees to learn and grow, the more engaged they will be at work. That’s how the Council of Young Professionals (CYP) was formed. Stryker's vision is to stimulate positive change by giving a voice to young talent, while maintaining the organization's core values. The mission of the CYP is to create an inclusive community across Stryker to drive initiatives that attract, engage and retain young talent.

Stryker connects its people with their impact by inviting new hires to visit an operating room to see their products at work. In its Endoscopy business, new team members spend time observing surgeries in an operating room at one of the local hospitals with members of their ProCare team. Members of the ProCare team are Stryker employees who spend their working hours within a hospital or medical center versus an office, acting as an extension of the medical staff and ensuring that everything runs smoothly. To help new employees learn the business, the ProCare product experts act as hosts to help them learn more about Stryker's products in a medical environment and to understand the needs of their customers better.

In order to encourage employees to give back to the community, Stryker Mexico created a Volunteer Passport. The passport includes a number of different organizations that employees can donate their time to, and people receive a stamp for each volunteer activity. At the end of the year, participants get special recognition for their volunteer efforts.
