Medical sales survey respondents noted “a positive company culture” as the primary reason they voted for their company to win. Why do you believe your employees view your corporate culture as a positive place for them to build their careers?
One of our core beliefs is that engaged talent is essential to perpetuating our success. That is why our career slogan is: “Where you make your passion your profession.” We want our employees to come to work every day excited about doing their best work and having a positive impact. Together, we are determined to win in the marketplace by providing great solutions for patients in the markets we serve. This combination of our determination and desire to serve is exciting and meaningful!

CONMED promotes an engaging employee culture that allows everyone to do the work that they love and make an impact. We work together and are always reminded that the work we do is truly benefiting the lives of others. – Erica DeLuke, Talent Acquisition Specialist
CONMED is focusing on growth. When you focus on growth, it opens the doors for many opportunities for our employees. When a company grows it means employees are being given responsibility to make their own decisions, find new opportunities that grow and stretch them, and it ensures our employees partner with each other to make things happen. – Shaelie Lambarth, Director of Global Talent Acquisition & EMEA Leader
CONMED has been focusing on internal talent and also external talent where employees know that they can grow within the organization. – Danielle Walicki, Talent Acquisition Administrator
I think that CONMED offers insight, exposure and opportunity for folks to advance their careers based on their talents as well as their growing passion and interest because they may change over time. At first they may think they want to manage, but then actually find out they prefer training or marketing and the company gives them opportunities to explore those interests that align with their skill sets. – Kristen Schlukebir, Sales Recruiter
What do CONMED’s company leaders do to empower team members to be supportive of one another?
Our CEO always says that one of our top goals is not only to take care of customers but also to take care of each other. It is through teamwork and caring about each other as people that we build great relationships that allow us to achieve the impossible — together! – Lisa McCallister, Talent Acquisition Manager
CONMED’s leaders are actively involved in ensuring we have everything we need to do our job successfully. We know that by working together and supporting each other, we will be that much more successful. – Erica DeLuke, Talent Acquisition Specialist
We believe in the power of relationships. If we start with building relationships in our teams, then the teamwork becomes easy because it’s about an individual and not about “another team.” – Shaelie Lambarth, Director of Global Talent Acquisition & EMEA Leader
Company leaders are there for their teams. When teams feel respected and supported, they feel empowered to do their best. – Danielle Walicki, Talent Acquisition Administrator
The majority of medical sales survey respondents say the best part of their jobs is making a difference or impact on the world. At CONMED, how do you actively help sales reps do this for their customers and customers’ patients?
Innovative products. Everyone at the company, from manufacturing to human resources has an awareness that what we do impacts customers. So, supporting the sales force by being responsible and responsive is a part of our culture. – Lisa McCallister, Talent Acquisition Manager
Our products are innovative and effective. Our sales reps truly believe in the products they are selling and know that they are making a difference in patients’ lives. – Erica DeLuke, Talent Acquisition Specialist
Our number one focus is to make sure our sales reps are taken care of. If we put the focus on our sales reps, it means they give the best care to our customers, which ultimately means patients receive the best care. It can be our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters, and brothers on that table and it is critical they are taken care of to the best of our ability. – Shaelie Lambarth, Director of Global Talent Acquisition & EMEA Leader
Making sure the sales reps are taking care of so they can, in turn, make sure that their patients are taken care of to the highest extent. – Danielle Walicki, Talent Acquisition Administrator
