For the first time Becton Dickinson, a world leader in the biomedical technology industry, obtains the recognition of Top employers in Italy, thanks to the important and continuous commitment dedicated to the inclusion and growth of its employees, thus being among the over 1800 companies in 123 countries around the world officially proclaimed by the Top employer’s institute, the global certifying body of the excellence of HR practices.
Becton Dickinson has distinguished itself for its commitment to the management policies of its people, placing their needs at the center and contributing to their general well-being, a fundamental prerequisite for knowing how to best respond to its customers.
“At BD, we strive every day to make a difference by helping more patients live a better life. Advancing the world of health is not just our mission, it’s who we are. This is why it is essential to create an excellent working environment for our people, which favors innovative approaches and enhances the uniqueness and value that everyone expresses in their profession”, says Giorgio Benigni, country general manager of BD Italy and Greece.
“We are very proud – comments Valentina Maurelli, human resources director of BD Italy and Greece – to have obtained the Top Employers Italia certification, at the end of a difficult and complex period like the one just passed. This is an important recognition that our company receives this year for the first time and that attests to Becton Dickinson as a reality attentive to the development and growth of its employees. The centrality of people, in fact, together with the culture of innovation and research, represent a strategic lever of the company’s success”.
“This – he warns – is a great achievement for us and expresses the commitment made year after year to make our HR practices increasingly competitive as well as representing an important recognition of the dedication we have towards our employees”.
Becton Dickinson’s HR policies aim to build a change around people, based on the diffusion, at all levels, of a culture of professional growth as an opportunity to manage the growing complexity of the biomedical market.
BD has always been concretely committed to growing talents, as well as to developing work-life balance programs and to offering everyone, men and women, the same opportunities to be able to hold managerial positions of the highest level. Through the Servant Leadership model, promoted thanks to dedicated training initiatives, leaders are required to put themselves at the service of people to foster an environment where they can best express their potential. Finally, another success factor for talent development is the internationality of the BD context.
The latter, in fact, can find local and international opportunities to expand their skills in an innovative and personalized way, having dedicated development programs available in the BD university. Another objective of the company, also in relation to the current context, is to work to put into practice new forms of communication and sharing: the skills acquired can be revitalized and reinterpreted, favoring a continuous and profitable exchange at all levels.
And finally, there is no lack of commitment and energy to advance progress in the field of inclusion and diversity. Becton Dickinson is one of the top 5 biomedical companies in the world and is present in more than 190 countries. In Italy since 1971, with a total of 550 employees.
