Learning and Development
We're committed to employing talented people and enabling them to reach their full potential. We’ll work with you to help you be your best. And to achieve your career goals.

Our internal development programmes help you learn the business and build knowledge on key areas such as ethics, safety and unconscious bias. Our Anderson Executive Education Programme at UCLA is developing our future leaders, and through the Smiths Excellence System we're offering operations colleagues recognised qualifications.
Reward & Benefits
Our people are our sustainable source of competitive advantage. Their hard work and passion brings our business to life. We seek to reward colleagues for their contributions and enable them to share in our success.

We aim to offer competitive pay which reflects each person’s role, responsibilities and capabilities. Individual and company performance against our goals and objectives links pay to performance and enables colleagues to share in our success.

Diversity & Inclusion
Our success depends on the diverse perspectives our team brings to work every day. Our workplace respects and values each individual for their diversity and supports them in contributing to their fullest.

Our aim is a supportive, inclusive environment with managers and team members discussing challenges and accomplishing work in a respectful manner. By embracing our differences, we’ll attract, retain and inspire a highly productive and engaged workforce and be better prepared to outperform our competitors.

Our diversity and inclusion plan
A better place to work
We know that engaged colleagues are more open to change and innovation, are more productive and effective, and are happier at work. 
 
We track our engagement progress twice a year in our My Say survey. It gives colleagues globally the opportunity to tell us where we're good, and where we can be better. This results in focused action plans to improve what it's like to work at Smiths for everyone.
