About St Jude Medical UK Ltd


What is it like to work for St Jude Medical UK Ltd

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
St Jude Medical UK Ltd supports employee development by their Performance Development Review (PDR) process. They have two PDRs each year – one mid-year and one at year-end. The aim of these are for the employee and their line manager to discuss the achievement of objectives, establish new goals moving forward and openly address career aspirations. As part of the company’s effort to continuously improve processes, they recently tasked a working party with the responsibility of revamping the PDR documentation. They maintain the company’s five key performance factors (Customer Focus, Delivers Results with Integrity, Teamwork, Initiative, Personal Involvement) but use a role profile matrix to standardise performance expectations for each role. The company rolled out a training programme equipping individuals with the procedural knowledge and preparation requirements required to maximize the output of the PDR. Following the year end PDR, they produced a development database where they detail each employee’s short term and long term goals and objectives.

The St Jude Medical Employee Forum has been established for 18 months as a vehicle for staff and management to have an open discussion on any topic that has an effect on the business and personnel. The Forum membership is represented by every area of the business and the members actively seek topics to raise at bi-monthly meetings. The company also have informal surveys which are issued to solicit anonymous feedback on specific matters or events for consideration and implementation of initiatives, which have been beneficial to SJM. In addition, all staff are encouraged to raise issues and discuss with managers as well as colleagues, the employee forum rep or mentor. By relocating everyone to completely unfamiliar and unusual surroundings, the SJM office staff were invited on a boating experience day to discuss the way the office is branded and perceived, how individually and collectively they work and how things could improve. Fresh, open and honest discussions were had, an alternative mission for the office staff was agreed upon.

The cornerstone of employee engagement is ensuring outstanding contribution and performance are recognised by the Company. The annual Staff Awards are one formal way in which St Jude Medical rewards superb achievements. There are 8 award categories nominated by employees, including the coveted Managing Director’s Award, ultimately decided by the Country Manager. This award in particular recognises an individual who has made an exceptional impact on the business. A letter, cheque and trophy are presented to all winners – and a winner’s plaque erected in Capulet House. Following a day’s team-building activity, last year’s awards ceremony was held at the Celtic Manor hotel in Newport and was attended by the winners, runners-up and the management team.
