Committing to people alongside leading CEOs 

In August of 2019, Stryker CEO Kevin Lobo made a commitment alongside 180 other CEOs to lead their companies for the benefit of all stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders. Together, these leaders—representing many of the largest, most influential organizations in America—sent a strong message that every person has value and is worth investing in.  

At Stryker, we believe in doing business as a force for good. Through these initiatives—among many others --we're benefitting all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and helping to create an economy where all people can flourish.

Today, Stryker is putting our commitment into action. Five of the many ways include:

We support moms and dads
Our parental leave policy gives moms and dads more paid time off and flexibility with a new child.

We recruit military veterans
We are part of the Veterans Job Mission, a coalition of more than 200 companies that pledge to hire 1 million veterans by 2020.

We offer a 401(k) plan that exceeds market
Our 401(k) plan matches $0.50 for every dollar contributed by an employee, up to 8 percent of their eligible wages.

We promote diversity and inclusion
Our entire senior leadership team added diversity and inclusion to their performance objectives.

We help advance female leaders in science
In partnership with the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), Stryker awards up to $50,000 to a well-deserving female scientist/engineer to help her pursue a research career and establish herself as a leader in the orthopaedic field.
