WHO WE ARE
B. Braun Global Group‘s corporate philosophy of “Sharing Expertise” is our promise to share experience, knowledge and seek constructive interaction with healthcare professionals. “Sharing Expertise” also means we challenge and support each other, so that together we can improve our products, services and health throughout the world. We work passionately to improve therapies, reduce risks and make healthcare processes more effective and efficient.
Our company values are represented through our “Core Competencies” which are the foundation upon which our culture is built. Regardless of job title, function or responsibility, our employees are our ambassadors of these values.
In addition to this, providing a family friendly work environment remains a fundamental part of our corporate culture. Our flexible work models reflect the changing demands of different stages of life. The cultural and social diversity of the company is reflected at all levels of our workforce.
A constructive and positive relationship with employees and their representatives as well as an open, active culture of cooperation is important to us.
Throughout this period, our employees’ health and wellbeing has been, and always will remain our number one priority. We have altered the way we work and continued to monitor this daily to ensure our people are safe and feel supported.
Prior to the Australian Government’s directions being introduced, we advised it was mandatory for majority of our employees to work from home. As we are an essential service, certain departments, such as Customer Service, Supply Chain and Aesculap Technical Services, were able to continue their job duties by introducing split shifts to minimise physical contact and remain safe.
Mental health and wellbeing is a priority at B. Braun where we are proud to have created a supportive culture and workplace. Our communication levels have increased, leadership teams are educated to notice behavioural changes and all employees are aware they can reach out to each other and be assured support will be there. We also have an employee assistance program that is provided to all employees for confidential support when needed. We are proud in what we have achieved during this challenging period and believe we have managed this unprecedented time successfully so far. Although the physical distance was introduced, we remain close as a team.
REASONS TO JOIN OUR B. BRAUN FAMILY
Values and Culture
Our family values are demonstrated across all levels of the organisation, we truly care for one another and the working environment (whether it be from home or in the office) is a positive place that employees enjoy coming to everyday.
Contributing to our family values, we have implemented additional activities that employees are able to take part of which increases our team work through cross functional involvement. Activities such as our yearly ping pong competition or an occasional barbeque to celebrate Oktoberfest provides an opportunity to have fun with your colleagues.
Learning and Development
B. Braun rewards the work of its employees with performance based compensation systems and supports the career path of every individual with a wide range of training and professional development opportunities. We encourage our employees to continue to develop knowledge, skills and experience. We provide personal development plans to relish the opportunity for employees to achieve their full potential throughout all stages of their career. We value hard work, acknowledge internal talent and frequently promote from within.
To give back to our community, we partner with our local universities and run a successful internship programme for final year students. This provides students with an opportunity to gain corporate work experience, be involved in real projects and learn from senior employees who have a vast experience and are happy to share their expertise.
As a family-owned business, B. Braun acts around the world as a "citizen of society." We consider this to mean that we act as a good citizen for society in the long term, beyond our actual business activities, and set an example for other companies.
We are convinced that sustainable thinking strengthens our company, encourages growth, and makes an essential contribution to remaining an independent family-owned business in the future. Sustainable action promotes collaboration with colleagues, strengthens relationships with customers, partners and society, and creates added value as a result.
At B. Braun Australia and New Zealand, we are involved in a number of charitable organisations that we have continuously supported for years. Our most recent campaign supports Australian wildlife after the devastating bush fires we witnessed that wiped out one third of our wildlife.
We also support our employees who are involved in helping within their own communities by providing 2 paid days of volunteer leave.
