MedTech News: Philips has been recognised on Forbes’s Best Employers for Diversity 2021 list.

Surveyed employees recognise Philips for its diligent efforts in fostering an inclusive culture, fuelling employee collaboration and engagement. Philips’ inclusion on this prestigious ranking demonstrates the company’s commitment to ensuring its culture is engrained with diversity and inclusion, particularly during a defining year such as 2020. Philips ranked 140 on the 2021 list, jumping 300 spots from 2020.

“On top of COVID-19 and the healthcare inequalities it exposed, societal unrest and racial tension continue to be defining moments for the country as well as many organisations,” said Lauren Gohde, Philips North America Inclusion & Diversity Lead.

“At Philips, we are taking time to have important conversations around the different backgrounds and strengths we bring. We have seen the development and growth of diverse employee networks across the globe and believe that open and honest dialogue is the key to trust and progress. While there is always work to be done, I’m proud of our ability to embrace our differences and seek diverse experiences.”

While Philips aims to improve 2.5 billion lives per year by 2030, including 400 million in underserved communities worldwide, this recognition illustrates the company’s efforts to empower its own employees, celebrate diverse viewpoints, and foster a culture where people feel valued, safe and supported to be their best.

This most recent accolade is another example of Philips’ ongoing investment in building diverse workplaces. In March 2021, Philips ranked among “Top 50 Employers” for multicultural employees by Equal Opportunity magazine, and in January 2021, Philips was named one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Annual Assessment of LGBTQ Workplace Equality. The company was previously highlighted in Forbes’ Best Employers for Women and Forbes’ America’s Best Employers for Diversity.

Philips will continue to prioritise equality and diversity in all aspects of their work, believing that every individual should be treated fairly and respectfully and have equal access to opportunities and resources.
