Updated: Apr 10

Our mission is simple: Together with our customers, we’re driven to make healthcare better. By collaborating with each other and our customers, we’re able to develop innovative products and services that ultimately impact the lives of over 130 million patients each year.   

This impact wouldn’t be possible without our teams. We say it often and it remains true – it’s the people that make Stryker a great place to work. And the best way to understand our amazing culture? See it for yourself.

Here are 12 reasons you'll love Stryker:

1. We're a purpose-driven company

Customers and patients are at the heart of what we do. Each year we impact more than 130 million patients around the world. This impact drives us to continue to work together to deliver innovative results. We love to share, read and hear about the patients whose quality of life has been restored by our products, and about surgeons who can better serve their patients because of what we do. These powerful stories inspire us.

2. We value our diverse strengths

We have a strengths-based talent philosophy. This helps us to ensure we understand, value and leverage the unique strengths of each of our employees. By valuing our unique differences, we’re stronger together.  

3. We celebrate both team and individual successes

Employees tell us repeatedly that our recognition programs and informal acknowledgments inspire them and build loyalty, commitment and attachment to Stryker.
