EMPOWERING HEALTH @ HOME
You are looking at the employees who make Alere Technologies Limited the great place that it is. We started up on the 1st Apr 2005 as Stirling Medical Innovations Limited and have received brilliant support from our parent company, Alere Inc. (ALR) (formerly known as Inverness Medical Innovations Inc.) and ITI Life Sciences. ALR, whose head office is in Waltham, near Boston, USA, are one of the largest health management companies in North America and they also manufacture and market consumer and professional medical diagnostic products across the world.
Alere in Stirling is into near-patient diagnostics in the area of cardiovascular disease. This has never been done before so it’s a really cool and exciting area for us. At Alere it's not just what we do that is important, but how we do it as well. We place huge importance on behaviours and on acting in a way that will create a great place to work. We are clearly different.
As a team, we all took part in creating our vision. It reminds us that we feel passionately about making a difference to peoples' lives. We are really proud about everything that we have accomplished so far and we will be delighted when our products are in patient’s hands, enhancing the lives of people who are suffering from chronic heart disease.
The success that we've had so far has been incredible. We successfully applied for a CE mark for our first product “Alere Heartcheck” in 2010 and are excited to watch as it starts to launch in new point-of-care (POC) markets. We are continuing to improve our existing product for further applications and are already looking at new ways of helping people suffering from chronic heart disease. Culturally, many of the things that we have in place such as our WHAM (What and How About Me), our coaching and our personal leadership development course 'Be Me', have been recognized across the ALR organisation as cutting edge, exciting and a role model for the way forward. Our team performance was recognised with a 2-star award in The Sunday Times Best Companies survey for the second year running.
