We’re proud to offer a hybrid work model allowing our employees to work from home when they can and from the office when they prefer, or business requires it. Not only do we provide

the equipment needed for our employees to perform at their best from their homes, but we also offer a free transportation program for our employees with eight different routes throughout the area to make your commute as smooth as possible.

3. Employee wellness programs

We are committed to the health and well-being of our people. Explore three programs that we offer to help our employees reach their life goals.

  • Stryker’s Strive for Wellbeing program: This program offers courses that help employees learn about, implement and sustain healthier habits.

  • Employee assistance program: Employees have access to resources that offer psychological support both online and onsite. Every Wednesday, we have two psychologists available for you to schedule a time during the workday to decompress and connect with a therapist.

  • Well-being days: Each quarter employees are given an extra day off to take some time to relax and recharge!

4. Day off on your birthday

Celebrate your birthday with the day off every year!

5. Employee engagement events

We encourage building personal relationships with the people we work with. That’s why we have organized social events such as BBQs on the terrace and bring your family to work day!

These events are often planned and hosted by our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to foster an inclusive workplace and a sense of community among coworkers.

6. Outdoor space

Take advantage of Costa Rica’s beautiful views on the outdoor terrace! Grab a breath of fresh air, enjoy lunch outside or take a call while connecting with the outdoors.

7. Recognition program

Who doesn’t like recognition for a job well done? Our recognition program encourages you to share your appreciation by sending virtual thank you notes, nominating someone who has gone the extra mile on a quarterly rotation, and allowing managers to highlight an employee at monthly staff meetings.

8. Development opportunities

One of Stryker’s core values is our people. We grow talent and we want our employees to stay with our company even if it means changing teams or divisions. We encourage our team members to continue to sharpen their skill sets in a variety of ways. Our employees are granted access to LinkedIn Learning courses such as project management, PowerBI, time management, and many more.
