When I joined Philips the one thing that touched me a lot is that absolutely everyone is committed to the small details. Quality is obviously something all companies in the health tech space strive for, but here it’s different; there’s so much focus on every single element, and that’s incredibly reassuring when you’re putting your trust in a machine to take care of a vulnerable person.
Manufacturing top quality equipment and devices is obviously important to Philips, but it’s not until you’re relying on a Philips device to save the life of a family member that you truly appreciate how meticulous people have been all through the design and build process. There’s a lot of trust and respect here. Everyone knows that everyone else has earned their place at Philips; one individual’s role is just as essential as anyone else’s.
Innovation is a key word at Philips. You hear it all the time, and that’s because it’s so significant. If you work for Philips, then you’re here to try and push the company forward. We’re a huge team, but everyone is aiming for the same objectives. We all want to see the products we create making a positive different to people’s lives, and I’ve seen first-hand the benefits of our hard work.
