Diversity & Inclusion

Life is better when #youareyou

At Philips we’re always looking for ways to make life better – not only for our customers, but also for everyone working here. So we embrace everything that makes you unique. 

Here, you’ll be valued in all aspects of diversity, whether it’s race, ethnicity or age, or gender or sexual orientation, or any other aspect that makes you ‘you.’ We recognize the proven benefits of enhanced innovation, greater performance and employee satisfaction that derive from a diverse and inclusive workplace. 

Leveraging our differences makes us more creative, innovative and effective. That’s how we can best anticipate the needs of our customers, now and in the future – by representing them, in all their diversity, in our own teams. We will need to champion a new way of working, use a different lens and shift our mindsets to build and foster that inclusive culture.


Some of our key strategies include:

  • We committed to 30% gender diversity in senior leadership positions by the end of 2025
  • We implemented principles of transparency for the recruitment, appointment and promotion of all senior leadership positions
  • We enabled data visibility of gender balance for all Executive members and HR Business Partners through monthly reviewed dashboards to offer insight and review progress towards our gender goals
  • A company-wide training on unconscious bias awareness is part of the long-term program to create an ongoing dialogue in teams that will help us build and foster that inclusive environment.
  • We are revitalizing and growing our existing and new employee resource groups
  • We will develop a global mentoring framework to create structure, stimulate new connections and mutual learning to develop and progress diverse talent (fueling collaboration)
  • We will build on our Women’s Leadership programs with a focus on networking and sponsoring by males and females

Benefits

We're at our best when you are you

We offer a variety of benefits and health programs to help keep you strong, mentally and physically. This helps you perform to the best of your ability at work, while also making you more able to manage the rest of your busy life.

When the global pandemic forced us to go remote, it gave us an opportunity to do what we do best: innovate by co-creating. We applied this to the way we work. At Philips, we now have three main role categories – on-site, mobile, and, hybrid, which replaces previously office-based roles. Hybrid working fuses flexibility with collaboration and helps our people meet the changing demands of work and home in the most balanced, productive, and healthy way. We’re embracing an approach where we spend more time together than apart. For our hybrid roles, this translates to an average of three days working from the office and two days from home for full-time employees*.


Our hybrid working model is defined in 3 ways:

Impactful collaboration: There's an energy when everyone’s in the same room that can heighten creative problem solving. That’s why we have physical hubs around the world where people can come together.  

Embracing flexibility: Choosing where, when and how to work can vary according to task and team schedules. Flexibility isn’t office or online, it’s choosing the space that works best for you, your teams and our customers on a case-by-case basis.

Be at your best: The way we work and our workspaces are designed to support our well-being, offer career advancement opportunities, and enable us to be at our best. Our aim is for Philips to be the best place to work for people who share our passion.


*Hybrid role office-based working recommendations are subject to change in line with the latest relevant local COVID-19 government regulations and guidance.
