Here are 7 reasons to join our family in Ireland
1. 20 years of growth in Ireland
Our presence in Ireland started in 1998 with a small number of employees in Cork. Today, we manufacture a wide range of products and employ over 3,000 people!
2. Tax-free commuter scheme
Employees can take advantage of Governments initiative to reduce the cost of commuting. If you commute to work on a bus, coach, train, Luas or bicycle, you can save money.
3. Health and wellbeing 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 wellbeing of our employees through initiatives like lunch-time walks, reflexology, sleep seminars, road races, and more!
4. Flexible work hours
Having a balance in your professional and personal life is important for your overall wellbeing 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.
5. ABLE - Employee Resource Group
ABLE is an employee resource group (ERG) focusing on making improvements in the area of disability, both within Stryker and in the wider community. While ABLE started out in Anngrove, it is now a program to be seen in all sites in 2019. Through the creation of an inclusive working environment and on-site mentoring, ABLE is working towards ensuring every team member, regardless of (dis)ability, is supported to be as successful as they can be in the company.
6. Annual celebrations
From Family Day, to Engineers Week, to Bring Your Child to Work Day, and many things in-between, we have many reasons and ways to celebrate. Employees tell us repeatedly that our recognition programs and informal acknowledgements inspire them and build loyalty, commitment and attachment to Stryker.
7. Community events
Here at Stryker, we are dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Throughout the year we host many events that allow our employees to give back. Some of our favorite events include:
Daffodil Day - funds were raised to support The Irish Cancer Society.
Special Olympics - We sponsored two children to attend the Special Olympics as part of our Care to Share program.
Ice Cream Day - Ice Cream Fun Day is an event held across the six Irish sites in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.
Pink Day – funds were raised for Breast Cancer Awareness. Activities included sponsored silence, wearing pink to work, cake sales, merchandise sales, a spin-a-thon and more!
