What employees say

“In 2016 I was allowed to begin flexible working arrangements. I can now enjoy my exceptionally busy and often chaotic home life. It’s great to see more of my six grandchildren who all now live in the area. I can help my wife, Evie, when duty calls her to help out. This is really helpful when it comes to lifting the smaller ones! I can now help as the school runs come on line. We now take, often twice monthly, three to four day breaks to visit place all over the British Isles and Europe visiting places we could only dream of when we were working full time and bringing up our own children. I’m able too, to further my passion of studying social human history together with natural history which we both enjoy. I’m looking to take on a formal course in the former in the very near future. At the same time, I can appreciate working with a great group of people who work within important regulatory guidelines, meeting our customers’ increasing demands for constantly improving and innovating our products and services. All this is due to the flexibility and support from the Stryker leadership team and my own Operations colleagues. With flexible working I enjoy a demanding, chaotic, fun home life and demanding, ordered, interesting work life with great people from the best of both worlds!”

What defines us

Our workplace is special. You feel it when you through our doors. Candidates, vendors and partners feel it when they interact with us. We are a team. We constantly challenge ourselves and each other to achieve more. We tackle barriers together, encouraging each other to be better. We refuse to settle for anything less than our best—and then we reach further. We strive for more because we’re making a difference in people’s lives. We win the right way—with drive, passion and integrity. Overcoming obstacles and winning together motivates us individually and collectively. We care about each other like a family. By supporting and challenging each other, we achieve our best as a team.

What inspires us

It’s not an easy thing to accomplish. Building and maintaining a great culture requires commitment, time and attention to an effort that in our minds, never ends. It means taking a long term view and maintaining a style of communication that is frequent, authentic, and accessible.

We believe the results are worth it. Our culture is a recruiting asset. And our employees aren’t just co-workers, they are colleagues who are invested in the business. While many organisations may talk about what a great place they are to work at, we’re putting in the effort to ensure that ours lives up to the aspiration. We’re creating systems, delivering consistently, and listening carefully to our employees. With our unique matrix reporting structure, Stryker UK isn’t led by any one individual but by a team of leaders who are focused on making the work environment compelling and enjoyable for everyone. We feel honoured to be able to lead our employees and work alongside them. Each and every day they inspire us. Their dedication, passion, and sense of organisational pride is second to none. Indeed, we recognise that the success that we have today would have been impossible to achieve without our people. And it’s for them that we will never stop thinking about our culture. Where we are, and what we can do to improve.

Action highlights


At Stryker, we have launched several initiatives in response to our employees' feedback.  Among these are a Corporate Social Responsibility Committee; a year-long calendar of Wellbeing initiatives including chair massages, mental wellbeing workshops and health checks; a Diversity & Inlcusion Board of Directors, and enhanced activities in support of our Stryker Women's Network including a clothing drive for a local charity, SmartWorks in Reading. On an annual basis, we host a Bring Your Kids to Work day which gives the children of our working parents an opportunity to come onsite and learn about our company and the work that their mums and dads do every day. We believe these initiatives help to bring our employees toghether and create a culture that is warm, welcoming and inclusive - in general, a place where our employees feel Stryker is a great place to work!
