Supporting employees

“Medela cultivates a workforce that is mission-focused and reflective of those we serve.” – Urs Furrer, EVP International Region


Supporting employees as an international organization employing over 1,500 people worldwide, we are inspired by the passion and dedication of our employees to improve the lives of moms, babies and patients. Extending beyond any role, business unit, language or country, we share the same passion for our customers and a commitment to excellence, innovation and social responsibility. We invest in the development of our employees and believe in fostering an inclusive environment rooted in equity and diversity, valuing each team member and empowering them in their personal growth and wellbeing.
