Please review the information in this section and follow the instructions below to enroll in benefit coverage. In order to enroll on a pre-tax basis, you must complete your benefit enrollment via enroll.stryker.com within 30 days of your date of hire. In addition, you must submit any dependent certification (if applicable) to your benefits team within 30 days of your date of hire for your dependents to be enrolled in Stryker’s health plan. Typically, you will have access to the site on the Wednesday following your date of hire and you will receive an email once your access has been granted.

If you are having problems logging in to Workday or need help updating your personal or payroll information, please contact your myHR team.

2. Get to know your benefit options

Benefit elections must be made within 30 days of your date of hire (including the day you were hired) in order to enroll on a pre-tax basis. Your elections will go retroactive to your date of hire as long as you enroll by the appropriate deadline*.

Your elections will remain in effect until December 31. Your next opportunity to enroll in benefits will be during annual enrollment, held each year in the fall, unless you experience a qualifying life event, such as a birth or a marriage.

You can start learning about the benefit options available to you by reviewing the benefits information on this website and our Benefits at a Glance (2020).

You can also learn about your benefits through this online new hire benefits orientation. (If you are not on the Stryker network, you must enter your Stryker username and password to view the orientation.) Then, after reviewing all of the information available to you to help you understand your options, use the directions provided below to enroll.

A detailed Summary Plan Description (SPD) that describes the healthcare, welfare and retirement benefits is also available for your review. It is important to read the SPD carefully so that you fully understand how the Stryker benefits plans work — and how you can get the maximum benefits available to you and your family. For your convenience, Stryker provides online access to an easy-to-use, searchable version of the Summary Plan Description (SPD). Internet access is required but a VPN is not necessary. You can also access a copy of your Summary of Benefits and Coverage as required under the Affordable Care Act on this site.
