Baxter International Inc., USA
Certified Employer 2017-2019
As a global healthcare company, Baxter International Inc., has a strong commitment to the health of its employees and as well as to its customers and patients.
In 2007, Baxter designed and implemented the BeWell@Baxter program – a multidisciplinary cooperative effort to support and improve the health of Baxter employees. The overall mission statement of BeWell@Baxter is to help employees improve their health as a result of working at Baxter.
Health risk is measured through an online external assessment called the Personal Wellness Profile. Aggregate results from this profile are what drive goals and initiatives for the following year. Each facility has representatives from Human Resources and Environment, Health and Safety who collaborate to implement BeWell@Baxter initiatives at the local level. There are currently over 250 Local Champions across Baxter. This data-driven and risk-focused approach has resulted in lowered health risk for Baxter employees around the globe.
Baxter provides a broad portfolio of essential renal and hospital products, including home, acute and in-center dialysis; sterile IV solutions; infusion systems and devices; parenteral nutrition; biosurgery products and anesthetics; and pharmacy automation, software and services. Baxter’s employees worldwide are building upon the company’s rich heritage of medical breakthroughs to advance the next generation of healthcare innovations that enable patient care.
