We are proud to provide developmental resources such as:

  • Mentorship opportunities: Stryker in Argentina offers mentorship opportunities where employees are encouraged to sharpen their skill sets by connecting with experienced professional colleagues.

6. We celebrate you: A day off on your birthday!

Full-time employees not only get to enjoy the day off on their birthday, but we also provide two additional administrative days off per year, to use as you would like!

7. Recognition program

Our collaborative culture creates an environment of comradery and appreciation among one another. To recognize those that have gone the extra mile we have facilitated methods of appreciation that extend across teams. Methods of recognition could look like a virtual thank you note or nominating outstanding employees and highlighting these employees at office-wide quarterly meetings. These small acts of recognition drive great amounts of joy and appreciation throughout the office.

Fun fact:

One of our favorite DE&I initiatives in Argentina is the Murciélagos program. This

campaign builds awareness for employees with disabilities in sports. The event began with Murciélagos coaches presenting their message of inclusivity. Then, Stryker employees were given the opportunity to learn more about individuals living with disabilities through a Q&A session. The program concluded with a soccer match with employees blindfolded to simulate the experience a blind person experiences on a daily basis. One of our Colombian employees shared, “It was an extraordinary experience, and people valued it a lot.”
