Again this year, the world’s largest professional dental product manufacturer, Dentsply Sirona, has been honored to receive the prestigious “Top Employer” certification in Austria, Germany and China from the Top Employers Institute. The Netherlands-based certification company has been recognizing Top Employers world-wide since 1991, honoring enterprises for their exceptional personnel pro-grams. The official certification names Sirona Dental Systems as the certification process began in February 2016, before the merger between Sirona and DENTSPLY.
A high-performing, empowering culture for development
The extensive certification program includes a review of nine different topic areas: Talent Strategy, Training and Development, Performance Management, Corporate culture and others. Through Dentsply Sirona’s high performance culture, the Company was able to provide the jury with its established culture of progressive ideas and permanent talent investments. For many years, the Company has actively worked as one global team, making a difference to develop employees and offer international career opportunities in an industry with solid growth potential.
In 2016, 20 high potential leaders were accepted into the Company’s Global Leadership Development Program, in which 80% of alumni are promoted within two years; European and Asia Leadership Development Programs provide ongoing skill sets to more than 110 managers; and the Women Inspired Network, a leadership development program to accelerate career development for women, quadrupled in size.
Advancing Talent and Making a Difference Globally
For Maureen MacInnis, Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources at Dentsply Sirona, this fifth successful certification serves as both recognition and encouragement: “We are delighted to receive this certification as Top Employer again, as it reinforces our commitment to bringing out the best in people with unparalleled professional development opportunities. It is very important to us that our employees receive advanced opportunities to develop through world-class programs and skills enhancement. This is why we offer many opportunities for training and development for our employees in more than 40 countries worldwide. The Top Employer Award is not only confirmation, it is also motivation to continue developing ourselves as an employer. We are always working to continuously improve.”
For over 100 years, the Company’s brands have empowered dental professionals to provide better, safer and faster dental care. In January, the Company extended its commitment to talent attraction by launching a new career website expanding upon talent development commitments and employee experiences. Candidates can learn more about Dentsply Sirona’s empowering culture and the commitment to develop faster with the best professional opportunities.
“The awards and our passion for talent development is demonstrated through our employer promise. Dentsply Sirona is committed to bringing out the best in its talent to remain the most effective and well known dental brand in the industry. As our employees empower one another and our programs help them realize their full potential, the entire industry benefits, especially dental patients and the professionals who serve them,” said MacInnis.
