YOUR Development @ Philips

At Philips we are amidst an exciting, progressive business transformation- evolving from a company that sells electronic products to an organization that delivers strategic, innovative solutions to people when and where they need it most. As a result, we are intensely focused on driving a culture of growth and performance- one where each individual employee can realize his / her full potential in a way that mutually supports our cause and yours. Here are a few ways we are driving this, which you’ll experience firsthand should you come to work for Philips.

  • Personalizing success.
    We know that top performing organizations no longer dictate the definition of success uniformly across the company. Rather, it is defined by each individual achieving what matters to them, in context of the greater business mission. Thus, each year every employee at Philips collaboratively develops personal performance goals with his or her manager, ensuring alignment to business and team objectives. Successful achievement of those goals dictates bonus reward amounts, promotion-ready status, and overall employee happiness.

  • Individual career development planning.
    The career development direction you crave is likely different from that of those sitting next to; and that’s perfectly okay. At Philips, we don’t define a few career paths and ask you to pick one. Rather we invite each employee to craft an individual development plan each year, wherein you’d visualize a few preferred career path directions, identify resources or learning gaps to pursue them, and gain managerial support to realize them in both the short and long term. We welcome entrepreneurial, out-of-the box thinking during this process and continue to be impressed by some of the distinctive career paths our people have effectively traversed.

  • Supporting mobility.
    Long gone are the days where an entire workplace population is fighting to move vertically up the corporate ladder. However, one thing remains true. That today’s top performers crave consistent challenge, and that today’s top employers open doors to ensure they have it. As a global company operating in over 100 countries, across 3 diverse industries and behind hundreds of leading innovations, Philips is well-placed to deliver a career that covers wide-ranging territories all under one roof. We actually have a defined target on how many job vacancies we fill with our own people vs. external candidates. In North America, we’ve consistently exceeded that target over the past several years. What does that mean for you? Once you’re in the door, support and resources are behind you to go explore professional areas that align to what you are most passionate about.
