People First Philosophy
People First is our promise to empower people to communicate freely, interact naturally and participate actively.
Oticon was founded on a compassion for people — and a deep understanding of the role that hearing plays in living a richer and fuller life. More than a century later, compassion continues to guide our innovation and drive our business through the unique corporate structure that guides Oticon.
Instead of a typical corporate board of directors, Oticon is controlled by the Oticon Foundation, a charitable organization with a mandate both to grow our business and to help people with hearing loss. Our built-in commitment to compassionate innovation directs our industry-leading research in hearing technology, psychoacoustics and human behavior. And it’s what makes an Oticon hearing instrument unique in its ability to help you live the life you want to live.
