Boston Scientific ranked 14th overall and first among companies in the health care industry on the 2021 Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list, which recognizes companies for employee happiness and satisfaction at work. Produced in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company, the Newsweek list results were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000.
“Creating an inclusive culture where everyone can bring their whole selves to work and achieve their highest potential is a top priority at Boston Scientific,” says Mike Mahoney chairman and chief executive officer. “When our team is engaged and supported, we are better able to fulfill our mission of transforming lives through innovative medical solutions that improve the health of patients around the world.”
Boston Scientific was recognized for its efforts to support leadership development, increase diversity, equity and inclusion and provide benefits that fit the unique needs of employees. Examples of these initiatives include:
- Setting aggressive, transparent diversity and inclusion goals to enable growth opportunities for all employees. At the beginning of 2020, the company announced updated diversity and inclusion goals, called 3Up by 2023, to further increase the representation of women and multicultural talent within our workforce.
- Creating clearer pathways to leadership. The company recently broadened hiring and development programs, including those aimed at advancing opportunities for employees who build our medical devices to evolve and succeed in business roles.
- Taking specific and intentional action aimed at eliminating bias, racism and discrimination in our workplace. This includes required training for all leaders on topics such as microaggressions, modeling inclusive behaviors, anti-racism and racial equity.
- Combatting inequities, systemic racism and injustice in our communities. The company is executing a $3.5 million multiyear strategy in the United States to combat racism and advance social justice.
- Providing unique benefits focused on employees’ well-being, financial health and security: This includes pay equity, workplace flexibility, well-being circles, infertility and parental leave benefits, support in finding and paying for child and elder care, personal assistance programs and more.
“In the wake of the pandemic, business hit hurdles in terms of retaining and attracting employees – but the companies that made this list are delivering the respect, care, and appreciation that it takes to create a positive workplace that nurtures talent,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek.
