Global Inclusion and Diversity in the Workplace.
At Baxter, inclusion and diversity is about building diverse, high-performing teams that are engaged and innovative, and advancing company culture so that every employee feels valued, respected and safe to be their authentic self. We are committed to attracting, motivating and retaining an inclusive and diverse workforce to better address the needs of our employees, customers, suppliers, patients and caregivers. By valuing differences — race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, veterans and people with disabilities — we make a difference in the lives of millions worldwide.
Our global inclusion strategy focuses on four key areas:
- Workforce: Recruit and build diverse and high-performing teams that are engaged and innovative
- Workplace: Advance the company’s inclusive culture where every employee feels valued, respected and safe to be their authentic self
- Communities: Cultivate strategic and diverse supplier and community partnerships
- Marketplace: Consider the needs of customers and their patients in all aspects of Baxter’s business
"Baxter is committed to fostering an inclusive work environment that attracts, engages and retains a diverse workforce to drive healthcare innovation that betters the lives of the patients we serve. Integrating different backgrounds and perspectives within all facets of our organization is what allows us to continue delivering on our mission to save and sustain lives."
