Business Excellence Specialist
I manage and track global logistics projects and support our distribution centers. And I know, first-hand, that what we do at Thermo Fisher Scientific saves lives. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer and given a year to live. Thanks to an employee benefit at Thermo Fisher called IMPACT, our HR professionals supported me with an IMPACT team that pressed to provide a second opinion. After in-depth testing, it was revealed that I was initially misdiagnosed, and I did not have cancer.
The IMPACT program gives employees access to cutting-edge technologies and helps to deliver treatment pathways based on our specific molecular make-up. I could not be more grateful that, as a company, our technology and products enable cancer diagnostics in the clinic—helping millions of patients, like me, around the world. Without the IMPACT program, I would have pursued the cancer treatment, and would most likely not be here today to tell my story.
If you’re ready to reveal what’s next in your career, you’ll discover that at Thermo Fisher Scientific, each one of our 65,000 extraordinary minds has a unique story to tell. And we all contribute to a singular mission—enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.WHAT STORY WILL YOU TELL?
