Diverse Backgrounds, Engaging Insights and a Culture of Innovation

At Medtronic, you’ll find a diverse team of innovators who bring their worldview, their unique backgrounds, and their individual life experiences to work every day. It’s no accident — we work hard to cultivate a workforce that reflects our patients and partners. We believe it’s the only way to drive healthcare forward and remain a global leader, in medical technology and solutions.

Many organizations aspire to this kind of culture. We live it. That’s why The Great Place to Work Institute® listed us as one of the “World’s 25 Best Multinational Workplaces” published by Fortune magazine. As the highest ranked healthcare company on the list, we take this rating seriously. It comes from our employees who cited us for our culture of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

Employee feedback also plays an important role in our continued placement on DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity, and the Human Rights Commission’s Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.

Join us, and bring the power of your point of view to our culture of collaboration and innovation. It is through strong diversity, inclusion and engagement that we can remain a leader in medical technology and solutions. And by embracing everything you have to offer — your unique perspectives, talents and contributions — that we can live up to the promise of our Mission.

At Medtronic, diversity, inclusion, and engagement aren’t just buzzwords — they’re instruments of innovation. Instruments that power the kind thinking that leads to solutions that truly transform healthcare. It’s a fact — when people from different cultures, genders, walks of life, and points of view come together, the quality of work improves exponentially. And companies succeed and grow.

We attract and develop employees who are patient-centric, passionate, driven and who represent the same wide variety of life experiences that our patients do. We invest in professional growth, and provide intentional development opportunities that help accelerate careers.

We seed our culture to foster inclusion, ignite confidence and build a sense of community so that all of our employees can grow and thrive. And to make sure the seeds we plant take root and grow, our managers are expected to ensure their team members are heard, their ideas cultivated and leveraged to make a difference.

We believe this is the best and only way to drive innovative solutions that deliver better care to more patients worldwide.
