Stryker: “World’s Best Workplaces 2017” #10 !

Stryker invests in the growth of its people in a variety of ways and encourages employees to take control of their development. Through diverse opportunities and exciting professional challenges, Stryker strives to keep its people engaged in their own careers within the organization and promotes internal mobility.

Stryker’s talent-based hiring and development practices ensure employees are able to do what they do best every day. Many new employees take an online StrengthsFinder™ survey, which reveals strengths across 34 themes of talent, based on instinctual, top-of-mind responses that are not likely to change over time. Employees may work with a certified strengths coach, who walks them through their results to help them understand and learn how to make the best use of their strengths, as well as enhance their performance and peer relationships. The coaches also work with managers to understand their team’s StrengthsFinder reports so they can better manage and coach them individually and as a group.
