Medtronic recognised on 2021 Top Companies list

Health Industry Hub | April 30, 2021 |

MedTech News: Medtronic Australasia has been listed among 25 best workplaces to grow your career in 2021.

LinkedIn’s List of Top Companies in Australia is an annual list that uses LinkedIn’s own data to highlight not only the companies that attract talent, but more importantly companies that invest in their talent. The list also celebrates companies with great cultures, putting their employees first and providing them with opportunities to grow.

By securing a place on this list, Medtronic Australasia has been recognised as one of only 25 companies in Australia that actively help employees build a professional foundation and setting them up for success both at the company and beyond.

Liz Carnabuci, Vice President and Managing Director, Medtronic Australia and New Zealand, said “We are proud to be named among some of Australia’s most iconic and trusted companies who actively celebrate and reward their employees. As a leader in healthcare technology, Medtronic is a progressive and proactive workplace, and we understand how flexible working arrangements promote an inclusive and autonomous working culture.

“As a company, Medtronic constantly pushes the limits of what technology can do to help alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life, and it’s great to see that our innovative working culture has been recognised beyond the healthcare sector,” she added.

Medtronic Australasia believes in a flexible work environment where all employees can achieve a balance in their lives. Prior to COVID-19, Medtronic had already begun to introduce flexible working arrangements, including robust work-from-home measures.

The company’s flexible work initiative, YESFlex was developed to promote flexible work arrangements for all employees. It was designed to empower every individual at Medtronic to achieve work-life balance. This existing framework provided a strong foundation, which allowed Medtronic to cope with the flexible working needs of employees, well before the pandemic.

LinkedIn also noted that the Medtronic team “quickly enabled remote monitoring and telehealth services for customers and patients when the coronavirus pandemic hit. The company also chose to publicly share the design specifications for one of their ventilators and partnered with Victorian based company JigSpace to deliver a series of 3D assembly and maintenance training guides. More than 7,000 manufacturers have accessed the 3D guides more than 20,000 times.”

Another MedTech company recognised on this list is ResMed which pivoted to produce life-saving ventilators to help millions of patients globally. LinkedIn commented “Looking to the future, the Australian company headquartered in California is dedicated to supporting STEM education for the next generation with a focus on gender diversity, as well as providing assistance to high-potential, low-income young people keen to attend university.”
