Mayo Clinic Company Profile
|Employer Name:||Mayo Clinic|
Mayo Clinic founders and brothers, Drs. William J. Mayo and Charles H. Mayo understood the value of bringing together people with diverse talents, backgrounds and beliefs to best serve their patients. Their father, Dr. William Worrall Mayo instructed that "no one is big enough to be independent of others." He knew that the best patient care required a team of physicians, allied health professionals, scientists and educators working together.
Today, Mayo Clinic staff continue this commitment, cultivating a caring service environment where individual differences are valued and respected, and diversity of thought, gender, ethnicity and background is integrated into every level of the organization.
This commitment to diversity is woven into the fabric of Mayo Clinic's strategic plan through clear objectives for education, communication, and recruitment and retention.
Mayo Clinic staff value and promote diversity. Diversity refers to all the characteristics that distinguish individuals or groups from one another. It includes distinctions based on race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, veteran's status, or status with regard to public assistance.
The goal of Mayo Clinic staff is to create a caring service environment where individual differences are valued, allowing individuals to achieve and contribute to their fullest potential. Benefits of embracing this goal include:
An environment that nurtures and supports the fullest contributions of each individual is essential to success in patient care, education and research. Creating and sustaining this climate are the responsibilities of each individual who provides care, directly or indirectly, or learns at Mayo Clinic.
