Abbott named ‘one of the best places to start a career’

11th September 2008

Abbott has been recognised as one of the best firms for starting an occupation in respect of its efforts and results in offering job opportunities for those who have recently graduated.

The company was named as one of the 50 Best Places to Launch a Career by BusinessWeek magazine, being the highest-ranked healthcare company on the list for the third consecutive year.

It said it offers a range of programmes and benefits that are important to the modern generation, such as an online mentoring programme, tuition reimbursement upon hire, employee networks, health and wellness offerings and the opportunity to volunteer in local philanthropic initiatives.

The full rankings are published in the current issue of BusinessWeek magazine.

Stephen Fussell, senior vice-president of human resources at the firm, said: “At Abbott, we connect people with their potential, offering a lifetime of challenging and rewarding career opportunities.”

He added that talented individuals can enjoy multiple careers at the company, as it has global and diverse businesses across the whole spectrum of the healthcare sector.

Earlier this month, Abbott was listed on the Down Jones Sustainability Index for the fourth year in a row, being the only US-based Fortune 100 healthcare manufacturer listed on the North America and world indices.
