MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 28, 2018 – Baxter Canada, a leading medical products company, today announced that it has been named as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures in 2018 by Waterstone Human Capital, a leading executive search firm specializing in cultural talent management for entrepreneurial-minded, high-growth organizations across North America.
Waterstone’s national program recognizes exceptional Canadian organizations for having workplace cultures that enhance performance and sustain competitive advantages. Baxter Canada — the lone winner from pharmaceutical or medical device sectors — is pleased to be recognized as one of 10 winners of the Enterprise category among companies with revenues exceeding $500 million.
“I am proud of our team for continuously fostering a workplace that not only drives forward our organization’s growth and performance, but also makes us an incredible place for our employees’ careers to flourish,” says Baxter Canada President and General Manager, Stephen Thompson. “Our robust culture of diversity and inclusion, career development philosophy, and work-life balance initiatives create a culture where our organization and employees thrive.”
Baxter Canada has grown its corporate culture in 2018 through the Welcome Home program with the Canadian Red Cross, supporting patients in their transition home through a combination of corporate giving, employee fundraising, and employee volunteering. Giving back is an essential part of Baxter’s corporate culture, with employees encouraged to volunteer up to 16 corporate-sponsored hours annually.
“At Waterstone, we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it’s your organization’s greatest asset,” said Marty Parker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waterstone Human Capital and Chair of Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures. “What’s notable about the 2018 winners is their commitment to culture as a competitive advantage. They set an outstanding example for cultivating and sustaining great cultures that ultimately drive growth and performance. This year’s winning organizations are to be admired for the diverse and impactful ways they ensure culture underpins their success.”
