7 ways Stryker supports working parents
Updated: Feb 24, 2021
Supporting working parents not only makes life easier for them, but also helps boost the productivity and success of the business. At Stryker, we understand that less stressed employees are happier and more productive workers. Here are 7 examples of ways we support our employees throughout their parenting journey across the world.
1. Adoption assistance and subsidy for IVF
In Canada, Stryker supports parents-to-be financial assistance for adoption and with a subsidy for IVF if needed.
2. Paid parental leave
We understand that sometimes you need time to dedicate your full attention to your family, particularly when welcoming a new child. That’s why we are proud to offer parental leave for our employees.
3. Partnership with Milk Stork
In the United States, Stryker has a partnership with MilkStork, which is a milk delivery service for nursing mothers who travel as part of their job.
4. Flexible work options
Having a balance in your professional and personal life is important for your overall wellbeing and productivity. That is why for many of our roles, we provide flexible work options such as flextime, telecommuting, and more!
5. Grants for daycare expenses
We want to make sure childcare is never an issue for you or your family; in Germany, one way we help is through grants for daycare and kindergarten expenses. In our new Innovation Center, we also have a parent-child room – a combination of workspace and playground so parents can bring their kids to work as needed.
6. On-site perks and amenities
We offer many on-site perks and amenities which vary across our locations such as mother’s rooms for those who are nursing; fitness centers so parents can get a workout in during the day; dry-cleaning services to save you time; biometric screenings so you don’t need to spend time at the doctors; and more!
7. Family-like culture
We are like family, and our employees support and care for one another even without the company’s involvement. We also host family-related events globally such as Bring Your Kids to Work Day in Japan, an annual family picnic in the United States, family field day in Canada, and more.
