Life is better when you are you
At Philips, we’re always looking for ways to make life better – not only for our customers, but also for everyone working here. Our goal is to improve the lives of 2.5 billion people a year by 2030, including 300 million in underserved communities and 1 million workers in our supply chain. That’s why we’re taking steps to create an environment where we all acknowledge and embrace our differences and listen to and value each other’s views.
We believe every individual should be treated fairly and respectfully and have equal access to opportunities and resources. This means being open to and accepting of the diverse experience, perspectives and style of each and every one of us.
We value that our people feel cared for and listened to and we know the best and most innovative solutions are generated through collaboration between people who think differently from one another, so we encourage everyone to be themselves and share their ideas and viewpoints. We’re convinced that a diverse and inclusive culture drives business success and makes for a great place to work! #youareyou
Creating a sense of belonging
Inclusion & Diversity is not a program or separate initiative. It’s about us feeling valued. It’s about us being heard and sensing that we belong here at Philips.
We strive to ensure that inclusion is engrained in all that we develop and do. It’s about being and doing. To help us progress, we have added a new lens to view all that we do, a lens that is rooted in our DNA, that is one of our brand values and in the end is a human need – that lens is ‘caring’. We want to empower our people to look after themselves and each other to build and foster a culture where people feel valued, safe and supported to be their best. We believe this will create understanding and fuel employee collaboration and employee engagement, and as a result, our performance.
