Össur named a Top Workplace for 2019
Össur has been named one of Orange County’s Top Workplaces for 2019, according to an annual survey sponsored by the Orange County Register.
Össur was ranked 23rd among an estimated 1200+ employers in Orange County.
The Top Workplaces initiative, which takes place in major cities nationwide, is based solely on employee surveys. It honors exceptional workplaces where employees feel aligned and empowered by their company’s mission, believe that their contribution at work matters, and that they are valued and heard.
For over 40 years, Össur has been dedicated to improving people’s mobility through innovative technologies in bracing & supports and prosthetics. Its vision, to be the leading company in non-invasive orthopaedics, has inspired employees around the world.
The company’s values -- Honesty, Frugality and Courage -- continue to inspire employees to stay true, make every step count, and aim ever higher to help even more people who are facing extraordinary challenges to enjoy life without limitations.
In addition to its market-leading prosthetics and bracing technologies, Össur is well-known for its social responsibility practices, including its formal commitment to the United Nations Global Compact and Women’s Empowerment Principles and the Nasdaq Nordic and Baltic exchanges’ voluntary guidelines for Environment, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG).
Össur also leads the industry in supporting the O&P community through professional development and educational initiatives, including Össur Academy, OPAF and the Össur Women’s Leadership Initiative, and through sponsorships and active engagement with organizations like the Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Amputee Coalition.
“We appreciate the honor of being named one of Orange County’s Top Workplaces this year, and especially the contribution of our employees, who help make our company such a healthy, productive and engaging place to work. It is gratifying to know that our commitment to helping people live a life without limitations is also motivating to the employees who help deliver upon that promise every day.”
