EEO Policy Statement
Medtronic's Policy with respect to EEO Affirmative Action compliance is set forth below.
It is the policy of Medtronic to provide equal employment opportunity (EEO) to all persons regardless of age, color, national origin, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, race, religion, creed, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, status as a disabled veteran, recently separated or other covered veteran, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law. In addition, Medtronic will provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities.
Medtronic's goal is to achieve at least proportional representation of women and people of color across the company. Our programs are designed to comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, directives and regulations and cover all human resource actions including employment, compensation, benefits, training, education, tuition aid, transfers, promotions and social/recreational programs. Medtronic's CEO and senior leadership team regularly receive and review affirmative action reports and have the responsibility to monitor progress, reinforce policies and hold the organization accountable to meet objectives.
Carol Surface, Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer, and her designee, Paul Connolly, Vice President, Human Resources Operations, Processes, Quality and Compliance are responsible for leading Medtronic's affirmative action efforts and ensuring that the principle of equal employment opportunity is understood and followed. The HR head for each Medtronic establishment is responsible for local affirmative action efforts. All members of management must be familiar with this policy, must fully support it, and are responsible for applying these principles in good faith. All employees are responsible for conduct consistent with Medtronic's EEO Policy and are expected to demonstrate respect for all co-workers.
Medtronic posts this statement to inform applicants and employees of Medtronic's commitment to equal opportunity in employment. The Affirmative Action Plan and EEO/Affirmative Action Plan for Disabled Workers and Disabled/Vietnam Era Veterans is located in local HR offices and may be reviewed by applicants and employees on weekdays during normal working hours.
