Olympus Corp. of the Americas
As president, Sauvagnargues oversees Olympus Corp. of the America’s activities throughout North and South America from headquarters in Center Valley, including management of shared corporate services supporting the sales, marketing and manufacturing teams in finance, compliance, human resources and other areas.
“Olympus has consistently attracted talent to its ranks, but a strong job market last year meant a smaller talent pool and a lower volume of applicants than anticipated for some positions,” he said. “… While the pandemic forced companies to adjust how and where people worked, it also demonstrated how many of Olympus’ employees could effectively and efficiently work remotely. … The pandemic led Olympus to review and refine its hybrid work policy … . Reimagining how we work together has become part of attracting talent by building a company culture rooted in the Lehigh Valley that balances flexibility while belonging to a common space and community. … And through our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives such as our Colleague Affinity Networks, Olympus is continually working to maintain an empathetic and diverse workforce. Tied to those efforts and our core values is our new medical strategy that is guiding the growth of Olympus as a global medical technology company by focusing on the clinical needs of patients and physicians and innovating to meet those needs.”
