Our Approach to a Culture of Innovation
Philips approach to innovation requires us first understanding the world around us and diving deep into the world of our customers and end users to understand their problems before we develop a solution. We’ve done that with our workforce as well, and know that you crave meaning and success in life both as a person and professional. It’s why we encourage you to apply the passions and skills that have defined success in your own life to your role, and why we have programs in place to help you develop a career path inside Philips that’s as unique as your personal aspirations.

Engagement is a top priority at Philips and we know that the drivers that create engagement are different for each employee. Whether you are motivated by tuition reimbursement to meet your further education goals, a close mentoring relationship with an admired executive, or work-life flexibility to manage through a stressful life period, chances are pretty good that Philips has the capabilities to help you be fully engaged in your career and its success.

We believe that every experience creates a different perspective. So whether it is the unique experiences you’ve had as a father, a lifelong sports enthusiast, a female in today’s competitive workplace, a member of the LGBT community, or a cultural native we need your ideas to deliver the innovations that will best address some of the world’s toughest challenges. We have active employee resource groups across North America such as WINergy, a female leadership development group and PRIDE, a network for our LGBT employees, to bring likeminded individuals together; and diverse teams in all locations to challenge the status quo of what’s possible.
