Learning and development opportunities & focus on Mission among reasons for selection

BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 12, 2021 /CNW/ - Medtronic Canada ULC, a subsidiary of Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) – a global leader in healthcare technology, today announced it has been recognized by MediaCorp as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers.

This national competition determines which employers across Canada lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. Now in its 22nd annual edition, Canada's Top 100 Employers highlights the most progressive and forward-thinking companies, evaluated on a set of eight criteria.

"Contributing to human welfare is the backbone of Medtronic's identity," said Neil Fraser, president of Medtronic Canada. "Our mission challenges us not only to improve the lives of the patients we serve, but also the lives of our employees."

Medtronic has always prioritized learning and development initiatives for its workforce, as well as diversity and inclusion through its active enhancement programs, networking circles and employee-run resource groups.

Despite the chaos caused by the pandemic, the company has continued to offer personnel opportunities to advance their careers at all levels and live the company's Mission — to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

"We are proud of our employees' commitment to healthcare innovation," adds Fraser. "The desire to make a positive impact in people's lives is generally what motivates talent to join us -- and we do our best to ensure we keep that talent on board."

Melissa Louis, marketing manager in the Diabetes business, agrees. After graduating from university in 2006, she launched her career at Medtronic and made the most of the professional development resources provided by the company from day one. After progressive promotions over the years, she now leads her own team -- her upwards trajectory has not been slowed by the pandemonium of COVID19.

"Medtronic has stayed committed to its core values since I started and throughout the pandemic," said Louis. "The company's focus on improving people's health and quality of life hasn't changed, and Medtronic supports its employees every step of the way."
