Baxter International Inc. provides a broad portfolio of essential renal and hospital products, including home, acute and in-center dialysis; sterile IV solutions; infusion systems and devices; parenteral nutrition; biosurgery products and anesthetics; and pharmacy automation, software and services. The company's global footprint and the critical nature of its products and services play a key role in expanding access to healthcare in emerging and developed countries. Baxter's employees worldwide are building upon the company's rich heritage of medical breakthroughs to advance the next generation of healthcare innovations that enable patient care.
Baxter believes an inclusive culture and a diverse workforce can drive innovation, create trusted partnerships with customers, suppliers and community partners, and contribute to the success and sustainability of the business. This thinking forms the foundation of Baxter's global inclusion strategy, which is directly linked to one of the company's aspirations to be inclusive in the way we work with all stakeholders and to commit to attracting, motivating and retaining a diverse workforce.
Recognizing the experience and dedication veterans bring to the workplace, we actively recruit military personnel transitioning to the business world. Our range of career opportunities provides a vast array of possibilities for matching veterans with the right role. As a company, we are proud and grateful to employ military veterans and thank them for their contributions to our company and our country.
In my role as a sales representative, I am responsible for product education and sales with current and prospective customers. I have found similarities between the military and the healthcare industry. Both are highly regulated and have Standard Operating Procedures that need to be followed. And both require the ability to adapt and to identify appropriate solutions to accomplish the objective. In Special Forces it was about successfully completing our mission and at Baxter I'm focused on finding solutions to meet the needs of our customers who rely upon Baxter's products to deliver the care patients require.
The best advice I can give is to find a mentor in the business world who is willing to meet with you. Establish a regular meeting cadence and prepare for each meeting by having a list of questions or concerns ready to review so you can maximize each interaction. This is a practical approach that can support the transition to the business world without creating undue stress to the organization or yourself.
