  • The Center Valley spring interns completed a group project on how to increase diversity in college recruiting. Last Friday they presented it to Pierre Lacroix, CFO, Caryn Dashukewich, Human Resources VP, and Kelly Pettis, Diversity & Inclusion Manager. #OlympusINvolved

  • Across Olympus, employees connect and build relationships through Colleague Affinity Networks (CANs). These special interest groups celebrate our commonalities and increase understanding of our differences through group meetings, education, special events and team projects.

    Today's CAN Spotlight is: Ana Palas, our LGBTQ CAN Lead. Ana wants to bring awareness to the many issues still facing the LGBTQ people in the workplace and community. She encourages those struggling with coming out to reach out, as well as those who have a child that came out and are having difficulty understanding. The LGBTQ CAN has a lot of resources outside Olympus.

    “I am very happy that I work for Olympus. The policies that are in place are great, they protect the LGBTQ employees. We shouldn’t be afraid to be who we are at work or in our community," says Ana

“In July 2013, I became the first intern for the Medical Systems Group. I helped Product Managers in Core Gastroenterology, EndoTherapy, Cleaning and Disinfection, and Respiratory Marketing with critical projects. After the program, I applied for a Respiratory position and gained employment with Olympus two months before graduation. As a current Associate Product Manager now in Respiratory Marketing, Olympus has allowed me to flourish and make a difference in the lives of my co-workers, customers, and patients who suffer from lung disease.”

~ Ariel Merkt, Associate Product Manager, Core Respiratory EndoTherapy Devices


"Becoming an Olympus employee was one of the greatest opportunities to come my way after a 20-year career with a large pharmaceutical company. Upon starting, I was very pleased to learn about the great healthcare benefits and special wellness programs offered by Olympus. In addition, I noted the “atmosphere” and how much the Company cares for its employees. It is wonderful to find a company with such dedication to creating a positive and balanced environment for its employees."

~ Helen E. Yanovitch, Graphic Designer III - Marcom & Advertising


"In addition to Olympus' active involvement in the community and its emphasis on building products which enhance people's lives every day, I personally enjoy working at Olympus for the various opportunities available. Olympus is more than supportive and encourages employees to be involved with initiatives about which they are passionate, including helping to develop a corporate diversity and inclusion initiative."

    The benefits are good reflecting a caring corporate attitude. All companies seem to profess that they care about their employees but Olympus walks the walk. I have seen flexibility to take care of family first during health issues. Daycare is provided at the Center Valley facility.


    Like all large corporations there are always some bureaucratic hoops.
