COMMITTED TO THE
We work to create a better, healthier world for patients, communities and the environment.
Medtronic recognises that as a major employer, it has a responsibility to the community at large and strives to initiate, nurture and support beneficial grassroots projects which are reflective of the business.
We are the main sponsor of the Galway Science and Technology Festival, which aims to promote science and technology to young people in a fun and creative way. The launch of the annual event is hosted at the Medtronic Customer Innovation Centre with numerous scientific activities taking place in local schools throughout the two-week event. Medtronic employees are heavily involved throughout and it is their enthusiastic volunteered engagement which helps make the Festival a huge success.
We strive to fulfill the company mission ‘to maintain good citizenship as a company’ within the local community and each year, the Project 6 programme supports the rollout of sponsored projects and activities contributing to the community. Employees also nominate and actively promote and raise funds for a chosen ‘Charity of the Year’ and several events are organised during the year to raise funds.
The Medtronic Foundation is our primary vehicle for making charitable donations. Our Mission is to improve the health of people and communities by focusing our resources in areas where we can make unique and positive contributions.
