Choice with Responsibility
Our unbossed working environment is empowering people, where appropriate, with the freedom to choose how, where and when they work to make the most impact – offering greater flexibility to enhance wellbeing and collaboration. For some time now, we’ve been exploring with our associates broader, more flexible working models that will support our culture aspirations, and support a resilient, future-ready workforce.
This new way of working is employee-led, manager enabled and team-aligned for effective collaboration and productivity. It is part of our data-driven multi-year journey towards a future working model that unlocks individual and team performance while fostering a sense of belonging, and a healthy work/life balance. We are proud to take the next step in pioneering the workplace of the future, and confident that together with our people, we can create an environment that works for all of our employees.
We support the mental health and well-being of our people through initiatives such as ‘Energized for Life” offering the tools and environment for our people to reduce stress levels, become more mindful, present and energetic. Some of our key activities include:
- Health awareness: Skin and eye screenings, migraine care, flu vaccine
- Physical health: Walking meetings, healthy meals, yoga classes, office and mobile ergonomic tools to support flexible work spaces
- Mental Health: A mindfulness app, courses for understanding mental health, counseling services such as personal counseling to help cope with an illness or trauma
- Wellbeing assistance: Employee Assistance program to help people with personal difficulties before the problems negatively impact their work environment

- Spark - Our unbossed global recognition program, empowering associates to recognize and reward behaviors that spark success.
- Compensation - Our compensation system offers competitive compensation that is aligned with industry practice and supports the realization of our vision to be a trusted leader in changing the practice of medicine.
