About Tyco Healthcare UK Commercial Ltd

When the World Trade Center was attacked and troops invaded Afghanistan, staff at Tyco Healthcare helped to give hope to the hopeless by sending medical equipment and supplies.

Three-quarters of Tyco’s employees in the UK, based in Gosport, Hampshire, think the firm lives up to its maxim of “world-class products, worldwide care” and does a worthy job, and one in which 77% feel they can make a difference.

The regional vice-president started as a clerk in an export division, all of the last 10 management appointments were made internally and 70% of staff we surveyed say managers support them when they need to learn new skills.

Pay is average for the industry, but the firm’s success in winning sales of £122m in Britain last year from supplying 2,500 hospitals and other nursing facilities, meant a bonus of £500 or £1,000 (and 10% to 40% of salary for managers).

Everyone is eligible for a sharesave scheme after six months of service, with discounts of 15%. Four in 10 of the 398 staff have joined.

Half of the team members work flexibly, with options including job-sharing, reduced hours and working from home. There is free health screening and an occupational health centre on site together with a gym, solarium, sauna and sports hall, for £20 a month. The canteen is subsidised by £180,000 a year.
