Working at Bayer
Our LIFE Values
Our approach to how we work is summed up in four guiding values: Leadership, Integrity, Flexibility and Efficiency. Together, they spell LIFE.
As individuals and as a team, we’re inspired and motivated by challenge. We approach each day and every task with a sense of adventure and possibility, always focused on achieving our goals through these values.

We stand behind our people and encourage them to face business challenges head-on, secure in the knowledge that they enjoy the full support of a company that loves to win.
At Bayer, a new employee’s path to success begins the moment they come on board. Hello Bayer, our orientation program, includes a unique website for new employees to become familiar with Bayer as a company – the workplace, the people and the culture – before they start their new job.
The Total Rewards program expands the value of working at Bayer to something far beyond a salary. Comprised of Your Benefits, Your Advantages and Your Development, the program provides eligible employees with various options, such as health coverage, stock options and RRSP plans, flex time and education scholarships for children.

Your Bayer Rewards is uniquely designed to suit each employee, making the program as distinctly personal as it is comprehensive.
We are committed to both the present and the future well-being of our employees. In addition to extended health coverage, we include flexible benefit options such as savings, pension and stock purchase plans to help eligible employees achieve their financial goals.
