Here are 7 reasons to join Stryker in Ireland:
1. 25+ years of growth in Ireland
Our presence in Ireland started in 1998 with a small number of employees in Cork. Over the last 25+ years, our footprint in Ireland has continued to grow. Most recently we celebrated advancing our global additive manufacturing leadership with a new facility in Anngrove.
2. Health and well-being programs
Every month, we offer health programs focusing on nutrition, movement, the mind, and wellness at work. Every October, we celebrate Wellbeing Week which includes a number of key initiatives including guest speakers, mindfulness sessions, yoga classes, and healthy food samples. Throughout the year we focus on the well-being of our employees through initiatives like lunchtime walks, reflexology, sleep seminars, road races, and more!
3. Flexible work hours
Having a balance in your professional and personal life is important for your overall well-being and productivity – one way to achieve that balance is through flexible work hours. Stryker’s Chairman and CEO, Kevin Lobo, also shares his 5 tips on how to achieve a healthier work/life balance.
