DUBLIN, February 24, 2020/3BL Media/ – Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), the global leader in medical technology, is hiring its first Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer, underscoring its continued focus and significant investment in inclusion and diversity as a business priority.
Through dozens of projects around the world, Medtronic is lessening its environmental impact by conserving energy and water, increasing recycling, and reducing waste. These projects range from large, enterprise-wide corporate sustainability initiatives like energy reduction or building an onsite nitrogen generator, to smaller, volunteer-led environmental stewardship efforts at local sites.
At the 15,000-square-foot Medtronic warehouse in Jacksonville, Florida, a team of 35 employees spend their days carefully packing and shipping boxes. And every member of the team knows the value of what’s inside those boxes.
Their work is critical to making sure ear, nose, and throat surgery products make it to doctors and hospitals treating patients across the United States and internationally.
Each year, patients from around the world travel to Minnesota to share their stories about how medical technology has improved their lives.
Chris Marion was waterskiing with friends in 2017 when choppy water caused him to fall, his head getting stuck in the handle of the rope. The force of the fall caused his skull to become separated from his spine, an injury more commonly known as an internal decapitation.
At the time, Marion didn’t realize just how seriously he’d been injured. But as a veteran firefighter and paramedic, he knew it wasn’t good.
From mental health and well-being to financial assistance after natural disasters, Medtronic helps employees, every step of the way.
Medtronic employees drive every aspect of our life-saving work. That’s why we’re committed to supporting them in every aspect of their lives. The Medtronic Employee Assistance Program (MEAP) acts as the foundation of that commitment by providing employees around the world free, confidential support to help with nearly any work-related or personal situation.
