The fast track to greater responsibilities and rewards

Exceptional Danaher associates have the opportunity to participate in our BOLD program. You'll work on critical projects with access to and feedback from high-level executives, be given superior training and experience a variety of different challenges, tailored to your interests and abilities. Discover teamwork and leadership the Danaher way.

Within a typical span of three years, BOLD associates gain detailed exposure to DBS and the Leadership Anchors, spending about 18 months mastering each assignment before moving to the next. Planned cohort learning sessions and input from senior leaders will enhance your experience and offer clear feedback.

Some of our past BOLD hires have worked in:

Material Planning - As a planner, you’ll learn the basics of the Danaher Materials Process (Kanban Management) and will be responsible for maintaining and implementing the process to minimize inventory levels while ensuring availability.

Operations - As a Danaher Business System Leader, you’ll be responsible for planning, leading and verifying sustainability of Kaizen activity, principally in Manufacturing; working with various Operations Leaders on improving the manufacturing and transactional processes using the DBS toolkit as well as creating and improving visual management to ensure the organization has immediate feedback on the performance of their manufacturing cell.

Commodity Buying - As a Buyer, you will be assigned to a commodity or value stream at a Danaher plant and will be responsible for ensuring the continuity of material to support daily needs.

Production Engineering - As a Production Engineer, you are the focal point of the manufacturing process as they interact with all of the internal support functions and external resources to ensure the production process is streamlined and maintained without interruption.

Complete the program and you'll be well positioned to take on a leadership role at any of our 30+ companies.

“Being part of the BOLD program means I am part of a network of people throughout Danaher who (while they are in different roles and operating companies) are dealing with the same challenges and opportunities I am. BOLD has also offered access to programs and trainings that might otherwise be unavailable.”
