It’s Not Just About Sound, It’s Also about Support
"Helping hearing impaired people to hear better is simply not enough," explains Oticon’s president, Peer Lauritsen. "We must expand our commitment to empower them to communicate freely, to interact naturally and to participate actively." Cool. A corporate culture that actually puts people first.
Okay, it sounds on point but how does Oticon put this user-centric philosophy into practice? In a meaningful way.
The company, which distributes its products through hearing professionals like audiologists and hearing aid practitioners, has always focused its efforts on end-user benefits; one reason Oticon hearing aid wearers remain loyal. Once these consumers try Oticon they stay with a designer and manufacturer they know, like and trust. Now, Oticon delivers even more.
Oticon's corporate values strengthen the company's focus on user benefits that are valuable and relevant to both end-users and hearing professionals. Oticon’s guiding principles are simple and straightforward:
- The needs of people with hearing loss come first
- Innovation is how Oticon meets the hearing needs of a new generation of health conscious buyers
- Empowering consumers to stay engaged, active and informed is the ultimate goal at Oticon

Oticon stays in touch with its consumers, collecting data on the personal and professional challenges we all face every day. The company works one-on-one with hearing professionals and hearing aid wearers in the laboratory, in the field and at Oticon's international research center. This multi-pronged approach to design provides Oticon with the insight highly-skilled engineers require to increase functionality in daily life, addressing consumer expectations, needs and social interaction.
It’s not a cookie cutter, one-size fits all approach to hearing loss. Oticon puts people first by listening to the people who dispense and use their products. What do you know, a company that actually listens so you can hear better.
The company’s “People First” philosophy enables hearing solutions professionals to deliver customization, individualization and information that create the perfect fit every time.
Innovation: Leading the Way to Hearing Health
"Our culture of innovation gives Oticon the energy and the ability to be the first to bring the best to consumers" Oticon’s President recently stated in a press release. "This enables us to set new standards by turning seemingly impossible needs and preferences into innovative, functional and beneficial solutions."
Oticon’s core values stress that true innovation occurs when people work together across specialties to develop leading edge technology to meet your hearing needs. When audiology science and advanced technology are directed by consumer insights, innovative hearing care solutions develop organically. And Oticon employs this client-centric approach to the design, development and implementation of all its products.
Listen up. There’s actually a corporation that wants to hear from you.
Power to the People
This is Oticon's strongest and most valued commitment.
Empowering people to play an active part in life is a goal that Oticon shares with hearing care professionals around the world. "By supporting hearing care professionals to become stronger and more successful life-quality providers, we can, together, achieve our goal of empowering people with hearing loss to lead active, vital lives," Peer Lauritsen explains.
Oticon’s “People First” approach will certainly serve the company well. Hearing professionals will also see the benefits of more innovative products and better, more useful information for themselves and their clients.
