Great Place to Work (GPTW) has named Stryker one of the Best Workplaces for Parents in the U.S. for 2021, which recognizes companies who create a consistently positive experience for working parents.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, working parents have been facing unprecedented challenges. The award is largely based on analysis of survey responses from more than 6 million of those employees throughout the U.S. Eighty-five percent of the list evaluation is based on what parents say about their experience of trust and reaching their full human potential at work, no matter who they are or what they do for the business.
The remaining 15% is based on how parenting status influenced the degree to which employees from all backgrounds are equally involved in innovation opportunities, believe the company’s values are lived and breathed, and believe management is effective. They also considered our parental leave, adoption, flexible schedule, childcare, and dependent care benefits.
Thank you to all parents and non-parents for continuing to make Stryker a great place to work.
