Updated: Apr 5
Stryker’s Chilean headquarters is in Santiago de Chile, near the city’s primary business area and medical centers. To provide excellent service to our customers across the country we also have an office branch in the southern region of Concepción, Chile.
Various Stryker businesses can be found in Chile including, Neurovascular, Endoscopy, Medical, Instruments, Spine, and Joint Replacement. Teams are largely made up of positions in operations, finance, sales, human resources, compliance, regulatory affairs and quality assurance and marketing who come together to proudly deliver Stryker products throughout the country.
Here are 7 reasons to join our team in Chile
1. Our inclusive culture
One of Stryker’s core values is people. We are dedicated to providing an inclusive work environment for all. Stryker in Chile has demonstrated their commitment through the “Sello Iguala,” a voluntary certification of the Chilean Norm 3262 on gender equality and reconciliation of work, family, and personal life. This distinction is directly connected to the Stryker team in Chile's dedication to becoming agents for change and advancing gender equality in the workplace. Stryker in Chile also has two active employee resource groups (ERGs) which include, Stryker’s Hispanic/Latinx Network (SOMOS) and Stryker’s Women’s Network (SWN). These ERGs offer employees the opportunity to feel a sense of belonging and community by hosting events and promoting employee connection.
2. Employee development opportunities
At Stryker, we grow talent. By investing in our people, providing helpful resources, and identifying our employees’ key strengths, we are equipped to develop talented professionals that will thrive in their careers at Stryker.
We are proud to provide developmental resources such as:
Individual Development Plan (IDP): This customizable plan is a part of each employee’s annual goals and focuses on the individual’s professional and personal goals they are seeking to accomplish. This empowers employees to take ownership of their development and progress at their own pace.
Mentorship opportunities: Stryker in Chile offers formal mentorship opportunities where employees are encouraged to sharpen their skill sets through organized coffee & learn sessions. This gives less tenured team members the opportunity to learn from leaders’ experiences and more senior employees the ability to practice their leadership skills and extend their reach of influence.
Education policy: To promote a culture of continuous growth, Stryker in Chile has established an education policy that encourages employees to learn a new language and/or pursue higher education.
Free online course access: We understand people learn at their own pace. That is why we have given employees free access to one of the most robust online learning platforms. Here you can take courses to upskill yourself in public speaking, business acumen, leadership and many more hard and soft skills.
3. Employee wellness programs
We prioritize our employee’s health and well-being. In Chile, we believe in “Vive Sano,” to promote a balanced professional and personal life. Therefore, we offer several wellness opportunities to encourage our employees to live their best lives.
Our employee wellness programs at Stryker in Chile include:
Free gym membership: Our employees are given access to one of Chile’s largest fitness networks at no additional cost.
Stryker’s Strive for Wellbeing Program: Are you ready to hit your wellness goals? Through our well-being program, employees are equipped with the knowledge to implement and sustain healthy habits and accomplish their personal goals. This program allows you to earn points and prizes as you reach wellness milestones.
Employee assistance program (EAP): In addition to partnering with Lifeworks, we offer an employee assistance program that gives employees access to resources that offer financial, legal, and psychological support.
4. Flexible work model
We believe work can be done productively and effectively in various models. That’s why we offer a hybrid work model for administrative functions at our Chile offices. This allows our employees to work from home and from the office in accordance with personal and business needs.

To show appreciation for the support and camaraderie our employees have for one another, we have developed a structured recognition program. We encourage employees to share virtual well-done cards and nominate their colleagues who have gone the extra mile. These simple acts of appreciation spread joy and acknowledgment throughout the office.
7. Employee engagement events
When you enjoy what you do, it doesn’t feel like work! At Stryker in Chile, we coordinate employee engagement events to encourage connection.
