The beauty of every Philips innovation lies in the fact that it's been created to meet a very personal, unique need of an individual or society.  We use technology as a means to solve some of society's most challenging needs; not to simply improve technology for technology's sake. People are the beginning, middle, and end of our business, and that's why it is so important for us to create a culture where well-being, learning & development are as important as business results.

Take the story of Mark Russak as an example... Mark has been deployed on 5 military missions to both Iraq and Afghanistan throughout his tenure as a Philips employee. While away serving our country, his manager and colleagues team up to cover his work, periodically check in with his family, and frequently make donations to humanitarian missions he leads overseas. For Mark, Philips isn't his just his employer; we are his support base and extended family.

“I have deployed many times to Iraq and Afghanistan over the years and the one thing I never have to worry about is my employer, because Philips has proved over and over again that they are here for me and my family. Many troops don’t have that kind of support in the work place. The fine folks at Philips are a true blessing to us and we are very grateful.”

Three years ago, our global CEO created a roadmap for Philips to unlock its full potential as a company. He also realized that to be able to realize its success, we must unlock the individual potential of every one of our 122,000+ employees across the globe. From that vision, our inclusive approach to talent management at Philips was born...

One where internal mobility is encouraged across our diverse sectors, regions and product lines. In fact, our talent acquisition professionals are held accountable for filling a lofty percent of available vacancies with internal talent. This vision has also led us to do away with pre-defined career paths, and instead empower each employee to create an annual individual development plan each year that reflects their personal aspirations, passions,  and skill sets.

We've found that by taking this approach, a growth and performance culture has surfaced, and the outcomes delivered by our diverse employee base are as unique as the individual stories behind them. Take Catherine Rose's story as an example...

We get it. The role of work, and what you want out of it, has drastically changed over the years, and that's not a bad thing.What used to be merely a source of paycheck to generations past has now become an important part of achieving a sense of meaning and fulfillment in life. And that 'thing' is your career.

At Philips, we believe our meaningful mission and continuing history of innovation is the perfect platform to create your legacy in life through your work. We encourage and reward a spirit of creativity and entrepreneurialism because that is the only way we can continue delivering innovation to those that need it most. We hope that gets you even a little bit excited!

That opportunity, combined with Karen's passion for helping others and 'tinkering with things until they worked', has helped her find success at Philips nearly 50 patents later. Read her full story by clicking here.

    The interview process was fairly straightforward - questions about agile/scrum, the software development lifecycle, etc. Nothing "tricky" or unusual. No real-time problem-solving. Mostly past experience and how it would apply in this role.
