Our Culture –

Alere’s success is driven by a spirit of entrepreneurship, a tradition of innovation and an enthusiastic pursuit of market opportunities worldwide. Strong organic growth year after year, coupled with over 50 acquisitions over the past 5 has helped shape a dynamic, action-oriented company culture – one that values its geographic and cultural diversity while aspiring to a common organization culture across the globe.



At Alere, our business strategy, our marketplace branding and our people processes center on 3 simple, yet profound, attributes:



  1. Act Smart – Employees at Alere are encouraged and rewarded for being quick thinkers, for being able to help make decisions around complex issues or situations, for suggesting revolutionary new ideas and approaches, and for doing what is right for our customers, patients and Alere.

  2. Stay Connected – At the heart of how we work is collaboration, which means relationship building is essential, and doing so on a global, cross cultural basis. Those who stay connected at Alere build and leverage a network of relationships to solve business problems and grow the business; they know their work and action impacts others and are cognizant of how they impact them. Staying connected is a competitive differentiator for employees.

  3. Be Empowered - Alere fights against the bureaucracy that engulfs most companies. Employees are given wide latitude around how the work gets done and are encouraged to seek out the best resource, regardless of where that resource resides. Our culture values employees, who stretch themselves, take action and want to get involved in decision making.
