Getinge was named among the Top 100 Next-Gen Workplaces in the annual listing announced December 8, 2021, by RippleMatch, the leading early career recruiting platform. The list recognizes “The Top Workplaces for The Next Generation of Talent” and is based on a review of factors including a company’s investment in professional training and development, benefits, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The RippleMatch list of Top 100 Next Gen Workplaces is developed based on data showing the corporate programs and attributes that are most valued by younger “Generation Z” professionals.
