Tijuana: Our Culture


From comprehensive benefits and perks to wellness activities to organized volunteering efforts, ensuring our colleagues are happy and well-supported in and out of the office is a top priority at Thermo Fisher. Our IT CoE colleagues work collaboratively inside the office while enjoying social activities and giving back when they are outside the office.

Through the IT CoE’s Community Action Council, called Seeds, a group of colleagues meet regularly to organize and manage volunteer opportunities and local philanthropic donations for the site. Each year the group focused on variety of activities to ensure they are making an impact for many different causes.

How our close-knit team makes a difference in the local community:

  • The Tijuana IT CoE team coordinated a pet food drive to support Santurario Esperanza, collecting food and supplies for animals in need for a refuge 100% maintained through donations.
  • A donation from the parking recovery fee was presented by this IT CoE the PATA A.C. (Protección de Animales en Total Abuso en Tijuana, BC.), which organizes free and low-cost sterilization campaigns in low-income area and performs activities that promote the learning of the rights of domestic animals and their basic care.
  • In support of deaf persons, the IT CoE provided a corporate donation to the APSOR (Asociacion Tijuana En Apoyo al Sordo) as part of large and well-coordinated giving effort throughout the site.
  • Keeping the local environment clean and healthy is important to our IT CoE colleagues and their family and friend, who participated in a beach clean-up to support Playas de Tijuana.
  • Providing STEM learning for young minds helps ensure we are developing a passion for science and technology in our students. The IT CoE team volunteers regularly to lead Computer Science learning workshops with local high school students in Tijuana.
  • A variety of social clubs and activities are organized by our IT CoE colleagues at the end of the work day and/or on weekends, including Hiking, Paintball, Video Games, Football and Board Games.
