BD is a company with a strong set of Core Values that drive our culture and the way we do business — including the benefit plans we provide. We offer high-quality benefits and strive to communicate these benefits to you in a way that shows their value while expanding your healthcare knowledge. Our commitment to "Helping all people live healthy lives" provides us with the opportunity to create benefit plans that produce the greatest value for you and BD.
- Our global incentive compensation structure is designed to motivate our associates to reach their highest potential. It reflects a global consistency in BDs total reward system, as well as the alignment of rewards with our business performance.
- Most associates are eligible for an annual incentive. Annual incentives are based both on Company performance, as well as relevant business unit and individual performance. For professional and managerial associates in the BD Performance Incentive Plan (PIP), individual performance is a key factor to influencing the size of the award.
- Our Long Term Incentive Plan (stock awards) is differentiated in the marketplace based on the number of associates eligible for this plan. Our plan provides participants an opportunity to receive significant long-term value based upon the achievement of key internal and external performance objectives.
