Our employees are the power behind Hillrom’s achievements
We maintain a culture that respects people, creates an inclusive workplace and celebrates diversity. Because when we feel like we truly belong, our ability to do great things becomes limitless. It allows us to share different perspectives and ideas that lead to better decisions. Those decisions lead to innovations that enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers around the world.
Including and supporting the voices of 10,000 Hillrom associates to touch the lives of 7 million people every day isn’t optional. It’s who we are, and fundamental to our success.
Creating environments of inclusive, respectful behaviour and belonging comes from the top. Our Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Council includes our CEO, Chief Human Resources Officer, and high-level leaders from around the world.
