What is Bob White’s `Big 5’ when hiring? How Medtronic blends performance, patient care into culture

June 2, 2021

In this interview, Bob White, executive vice President and president of Medtronic’s Medical Surgical Portfolio, explains the importance of corporate culture. He also shares his “Big 5” list of qualities he likes to see in potential hires.

Over the past year, Medtronic has navigated the pandemic, welcomed a new leader, and shifted our organizational structure, all while still driving our business. We are also enhancing our culture. When culture and strategy connect — we win. Our strategy defines what we do. Our Mission is why we do what we do. The Medtronic Mindset helps us become intentional in how we show up.

During the interview, White explains that Medtronic must: act boldly, compete to win, move with speed and decisiveness, foster belonging, and deliver results … the right way. This is the Medtronic Mindset. The Medtronic Mindset – our enhanced culture - shapes the kind of culture we want — and each person at Medtronic can play a role in bringing it to life.
