Culture, Community & Our People

Making a Difference in Our Communities

Our mission of innovating for a healthier world extends far beyond the solutions that we provide. It begins in the communities we serve and the culture we create for our own people. By fostering an environment built upon a foundation of diversity, inclusion, innovation and collaboration, we can ensure the sustainability of PerkinElmer and just as importantly our society for generations to come.

Global Impact Day

Our global Impact Day is an annual tradition in which employees rally together to support causes in the areas of disease research, food, newborn health, and the environment. This company-wide initiative has enabled PerkinElmer employees to support our mission within the communities where we work and live, helping to improve lives and the world around us. Take a look at some of the ways that employees gave back on Impact Day 2019!
